  History of Wales   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Wales was legally annexed by the Act of Union 1536, in the reign of Henry VIII of England.
Glyndwr was proclaimed Prince of Wales, and sought assistance from the French, but by 1409 his forces were scattered under the attacks of King Henry IV of England and further measures imposed against the Welsh.
The title of Prince of Wales is still given by the reigning British monarch to his or her eldest son, but in modern times the Prince does not live in Wales and has no direct involvement with administration or government.

 GO BRITANNIA! Wales: The History of Wales
by Peter N. Williams, Ph.D. The history of Wales is primarily a story of struggle.
It is a tribute to the people of Wales' determination to survive against overwhelming odds -- a struggle reflected not only in its castle-dominated landscape and its surviving Celtic language, but also in its long literary history.
This is the story of that struggle: the theme is constant: it is a struggle for survival against almost impossible odds.

 History of Wales - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
During the early mediaeval period Wales was divided into a number of kingdoms, though some rulers were able to combine several kingdoms to extend their rule to much of Wales and Gruffydd ap Llywelyn in the mid 11th century controlled all of Wales and some areas in England for a period.
Wales became Christian, and the "age of the saints" (approximately 500–700) was marked by the establishment of monastic settlements throughout the country, by religious leaders such as Saint David, Illtud and Teilo.
Wales was officially de-annexed from England within the United Kingdom in 1955, with the term "England" being replaced with "England and Wales", and Cardiff was proclaimed as the capital of Wales.
