  • Notes 
    • For a time he governed much of central Wales. When he attacked his aged father, his half-brother Dafydd wound up with most of the lands thus gained, and Grufudd was imprisoned at Criccieth. He was subsequently sent to the Tower of London, where he broke his neck in an attempt to escape.
