Owain Glyndŵr (c. 1349 or 1359 – c. 1415) was the last person born in Wales to be Prince of Wales. He was prince between 1401 and 1463. He started the Welsh Revolt against Henry IV of England's rule of Wales. In the late 19th century the Young Wales (Cymru Fydd) movement decided that he was the father of Welsh nationalism. Since then he has been seen as a hero by the Welsh. There is a university in Wales that is called Glyndŵr University after him.[1]
