Mae'r berthynas rhwng y Cymry a'u llywodraethwyr yn mynd yn ôl ymhellach na'r cyfnod y crëwyd Prydain yn genedl unedig, ac efallai y caiff rhai darllenwyr syndod wrth ddysgu bod digwyddiadau diweddar wedi eu llunio gan hen hanes.

The history of relations between the Welsh and their rulers goes back far beyond the birth of Britain as a single, unified nation, and it may surprise readers to learn how recent events have been shaped by this history. From Roman emperors through medieval dictators to modern constitutional monarchs, the pattern of changing attitudes and loyalties is traced in this book.
This is the definitive work concerning the history of the Royal bloodline of Wales, from the earliest known Welsh leader, whose name was Caradog but was called Caratacus by the Romans. It is from this beginning that Deborah Fisher charts the history and meaning of the word ‘royal’ in the context of Welsh life and how this is inextricably linked with the British Royal family today.

It is written in a style that is forthright and to the point, and yet one detects a certain tongue-in-cheek tone upon occasion. Reading the book is a voyage of discovery. Every line of print is packed with facts, events, and deeds of these families, their fortunes, and of course, their misfortunes (some hair-raising). The research must have been exhaustive.

This is a must-read book. The word ‘definitive’ above has not been used lightly. Added to this, the handsome hardback is of a size that is easy to handle and has a feeling of quality about it. I found it unputdownable.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
The history of relations between the Welsh and their rulers goes back far beyond the birth of Britain as a single, unified nation, and it may surprise readers to learn how recent events have been shaped by this history. From Roman emperors through medieval dictators to modern constitutional monarchs, the pattern of changing attitudes and loyalties is traced in this book, offering a fresh new look at the ruling families of Wales in their historical context.

It covers both the royal families that existed in pre-Conquest Wales and the predominantly English royal families that have ruled over Wales since medieval times, examining the changing relationships between the rulers and the ruled in Wales, from the early Middle Ages.

“Royal Wales is immaculately researched and entertainingly written. The author has a colloquial style that will appeal to the historian and lay reader alike. The book takes the reader on a voyage of exploration, from the times of the Welsh Princes, through the oppression of Edward Longshanks to the present day. It presents the story of royalty in Wales, native and foreign, leaving the reader to make judgements about rights and wrongs. Essential reading for anyone who considers themselves interested in Welsh history”.
Phil Carradice, writer and broadcaster
