 Haakon VII of Norway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1896, Prince Carl married his first cousin Princess Maud of Wales, youngest daughter of the future King Edward VII of the United Kingdom and his wife, Princess Alexandra of Denmark, daughter of King Christian IX of Denmark and Princess Louise of Hesse-Cassel.
He had a son (and hence an heir to the throne) and Princess Maud's ties to the British royal family were viewed as advantageous to the newly-independent Norwegian nation.
The democratically-minded Carl, aware that Norway was still debating whether to retain its monarchy or to switch to a republican system of government, was flattered by the Norwegian government's overtures, but declined to accept the offer without a referendum to show whether monarchy was truly the choice of the Norwegian people.

The Duke of Edimburgh and the Prince of Wales favoured the affair but not their wives; Princess Alexandra, who was anti-German, thought that the Edimburgh gurls were educated in a completely German style, and the Duchess of Edimburgh for her part, diliked the Brirish style and her husband's British family.
On the other hand, the Prince and Princess of Wales were less enthusiastic about the matter becuase the passing of a bride from their dead son to his living brother seemed too implicate that Princess May had not care about Eddy.
The Princess of Wales was a bit sad becuase of his dead son but George and May agreed that Prince Eddy would be delighted with their engagement.

 The Norman Invasion of South Wales and Rumney Castle
ver the whole of this dramatic period Rumney was in the hands of Gilbert's mother Maud, who held it along with certain other manors in south Wales between 1267-89 as part of a dower settlement arranged after a dispute with her son.
Although Maud retained manors of Usk and Trellech according to the terms of the dower settlement, she was obliged to hand over the castles in those places despite her claims to them.
While there is insufficient evidence to suggest Gilbert may have pursued any deliberate policy aimed at keeping his mother in check, it is worth considering that as a result of these separate actions Maud would have been in a weak position had she wished to renew a dispute with her son.

Again, according to Ralph Maud it is more likely that "the battle took place nearby on the flats behind the river Lugg." Mortimer was captured and eventually became an important ally of Glyndwr.
Bodies of those slain in battle were brought to the church burial ground, "to be discovered by a plowman five hundred years later" (Maud).
