MEDIEVAL ENGLAND's GREATEST HEROES THE BLACK PRINCE AND HENRY V - Know Thy Enemy, might as well as come 2015 Wales will get Henry V, Azincourt and Shakespeare stuffed down their throats.
So what was going on post 1282 - 1400 - 1415 - 1482, got any idea at all as far as English/French History and Wales is concerned, no? Better go and check out, starting with the 14rh century post 1284 Anti - Colonial Rebellion to the revolts of 1315 and 1345 as a comparative study study of social popular revolts in Europe. This is a century of Climate Change, it gets wet with constant rain which causes crops to fail and this brings famine and discontent followed by plague, In Wales Mercenaries flood into the English Armies to go and fight in France whilst some join Owain Lawgoch to fight with the French against the English. All this is prologue to the Owain Glyndwr Rebellion, of which you of course know a great deal. yes? But what about 1415 and after, not so much I guess but you should as it will take you iunto the years in which Owain Glyndwr is kicked into the shadows to be loyal to an English Pretender Prince of Wales Henry V and then the 'Richmonds' beloved by Tudor Taffs.
Henry V born in Mon mouth on 16 September (ironic) and which Monmouth adores as it's own and no doubt will go a bundle on celebrating the Anglo - Welsh Victory over the French at Azincourt 1415 - 2015, expect wall to wall Shakespeare in 2015 with all that Taffy Leek eating and forget not that celebrating Dydd Dewi as a National Festival is thanks to Henry V who made it such as a thank you to the Taffy bowmen who won him a great victory at Azincourt and as similar Taffies were to go on to support the Tudor false prophet - pretender Mab Darogan. Get to know why by reading my blogs as Urddd Brenhinol Cymru and I'r Gad Battlefield Campaign.

None of they of course will announce to the world the existence of my blog I'r Gad Welsh Battlefield Campaign at http://brwydr.blogspot.com/ it ...
So what other to do other than some serious Welsh Medieval History Education, get ready for some serious all Wales Anti - Azincourt/Shakespeare Cymric Consciousness Campaign. Not on bloody fb but out and about in the real world ok, up for it? Then what about a massive pro - Glyndwr commemoration in Monmouth in September 1415, I shall work on it and in the mean time no messing this idea with fb 'Groups' and other 'Name farming' and 'Profiling of Patriots' on fb. Anyone with such ideas bog off! In time, will inform of possibilities in this connection and call a meeting of those who want to be seriously involved in organisation of. Further, bit of a biggie next, I am thing of raising a 'Byddin Henri Gwyn' Arwr Glyndwr who with other Gwerin Owain left Wales to fight with the French and some were to die at Azincourt but better death than dishonor fighting for the English. If your up for this and attending the Azincourt 1415 Commemoration on the French side then start getting into medieval reenactment and thinking of getting some suitable kit together for the expedition to France in 2015.
