Abstract

Owain Gwynedd, also called Owain ap Gruffudd ap Cynan, succeeded his father as king of Gwynedd in 1137 and styled himself “King of Wales” from the early 1140s. He was an able military leader and exceptional diplomat who expanded his territories, defied King Henry II of England, built coalitions with other Welsh rulers, and opened diplomatic relations with France.
