About Tudor Trevor ap Ynyr, Lord of the March

Also see http://www.ancientwalesstudies.org/id55.html


Tudor Trevor (a.k.a. Tewdor Trefor) who married Angharad around 942, had an impressive ancestry, which is illustrated by his many titles. He was Lord of Whittington, Oswestry and both Maelors in Powys, from his male line, and King of Gloster and Earl of Hereford from the female.

Powys was an ancient kingdom that centered around Shropshire and covered much of the modern Welsh border. Back then, what is now Wales was divided into four kingdoms: Gwynedd in the north, Powys in the east, Dyfed in the south west and Glywysing, or Morgannwg, in the south.

Oswestry is an ancient English market town located in the north of Shropshire, near the Welsh Border. It's also referred to as "where Shropshire meets Wales." Maelor is in Flintshire, Wales.
