    In 1401 Owain Glyndwr began a campaign for Welsh independence. He was crowned Prince of Wales at Carrog on the banks of the Dee and set up a parliament at Machynlleth. In 1402 Edmund Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, who had been sent by Henry IV to put down the revolt, met the Welsh at Pilleth on Bryn Glas Hill. Owain's army totally destroyed the English forces and captured Mortimer, who threw in his lot with Owain, eventually marrying his daughter. The Welsh revolt continued for several years under Owain and although it was finally suppressed, Owain evaded capture, disappearing into the mists of history and welsh legend.
