His father’s family was sprung from the former princes of Powys in north-east Wales. Since the time of Edward I’s conquest, the family had managed to cling to some fragments of their once-extensive lands. What was left to them they now held from the king of England in much the same way as did the other barons of the March, almost all of whom were not Welsh. But in the eyes of the Welsh, Owain’s descent from princes made him infinitely more noble than the other barons. The prominent poet, Iolo Goch, saw it in this light: Owain is a baron whose lineage I know, never was there a truer lord.

She may, indeed, have entrusted the boy to the nearby household of the Arundels, who were lords of Chirk and Dinas Brân, ^ Owain Glyndwr 21 as an eminently suitable place in which to be trained in ‘manly skills and polite manners’. Owain was also sent to London at some point to acquire an education to fit him for his place in the world. A Latin chronicler tells us that he was sent ‘to be an apprentice of the law at Westminster’ – possibly under the tuition of his future father-in-law, the eminent lawyer Sir David Hanmer.

Hotspur’s high reputation in war and negotiation made him a good ^ 40 Owain Glyndwr choice for the task. In March an offer of general pardon was made to all except Owain himself and a small number of other major leaders. The common people of the counties of Caernarfon and Merioneth humbly gave thanks and offered to pay the usual taxes.
