Notes for Gruffydd Ap Llywelyn King Of Wales
Historian John Davies stated that Gruffydd was "the only Welsh king ever to rule over the entire territory of Wales... Thus, from about 1057 until his death in 1063, the whole of Wales recognised the kingship of Gruffudd ap Llywelyn. For about seven brief years, Wales was one, under one ruler, a feat with neither precedent nor successor."

Killed by his own men while taking refuge from attacks by Harold Godwinson.
