- ing facts young Chief Gruffydd and his wife Gwenllian upon initiating revolt
against the Anglo - Normans were called 'Imbiciles' by the 'Crachach
Collaborators' of those times because it spoilt a good thing for they
The pair of Outlaw Rebels for a while hid out in Cwmwd Caeo before embarking on the great revolt post 1136:

Be it also noted that when Rhys ap Thomas of Dinefwr had died in 1525 aged 76, King Henry VIII awarded most of his titles and powers, not to Rhys's heir, his 17 year old grandson Rhys ap Gruffydd (whose father had died in 1521), but to the Englishman Walter Devereux, Lord Ferrers - and had awarded them for life, at that.
