Set in the Welsh marches and the borderlands of Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, this is a story about changing identities and the fate of heroes. Its background is the struggle between the medieval kings of England and the hereditary leaders of the people of Wales in the thirteenth century. From this struggle emerged Owain Glyndwr, Prince of Wales, the people's champion or 'barefoot rascal' and failed revolutionary? Alex Gibbon explores Glyndwr's history and legend and the links with the folkloric figure of John of Kent, Franciscan friar and Welsh bard or one of Glyndwr's many disguises?
