I feel people are a little tired of Kings and Queens of England and Scotland so decided to have a little break.....next time I will give some information (from the same book) about Welsh royalty. This is something I know absolutely nothing about so it will be educational for me as well. This. by the way, is the front cover of the book from which I am quoting all the royal stories.
I remember a story my mum told me years ago about her father and his sister. This may have happened at the end of the 19th century or early in the 20th. The story, as told by mum, was that her aunt had decided to do some genealogy of the Rockliff family and apparently she discovered that they may have been descended from King Llewlyn of Wales. When she told her brother (my grandfather) of this discovery he told her she shouldn't be too proud of that fact as, if it were true, he was a dreadful old blaggard!! Now I'm hoping to find out something about this king of the Welsh whom my grandfather obviously did not approve.
Keep watching this space on Thursdays and thanks to those of you who have been interested enough to have followed so far.
