  • Notes 
    • "Gruffudd was one of the most successful British princes of the Middle Ages and the Book of Llandaff claims that he was 'king of all Wales from end to end'. True to the medieval idea of a Wheel of Fate, however, Gruffudd's career ended in exile and violent death." [Dictionary of Welsh Biography, citation details below.] He was killed by Cynan ab Iago.
