History: Kings, Princes, Myths & Legends

Welsh history is full of misinterpretation, legends and myths. When famouswelsh.com started in 1999 King Arthur was still thought of as pure ledgend or myth in its own right. Now of course there's plenty of indicators to be sure there is truth buried in the ledgends. Misinterpretation on the Arthurian legend alone is staggering, most people believe he was an early English King, odd when England didn't exist then.

We've started here with Arthur because he is so well known all our readers, world wide can relate to this. However, there are lots of other stories and strings of Celtic culture that survive to this day. Within our listings you'll find references to personalities who have made such a great impression their presence is still with us like Edwin Hughes, Henry VllRichard Americk and other great characters.
