Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan
Llywelyn ap Gruffydd Fychan (c. 1341–October 9th 1401) was a local landowner who was executed in front of the gate of Llandovery Castle by Henry IV as punishment for his perceived support of Owain Glyndŵr.
Henry IV was in Wales at the head of his army to put down the rebellion led by Glyndŵr who was the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. He was the figurehead of a fierce and long-running, yet ultimately unsuccessful war of independence for Wales.
