Patterns of Power in Early Wales

This chapter describes English control in Wales in the tenth century, a period in which the political capacity of English kings increased enormously. Not content with the incorporation of Cornwall into the kingdom, the kings of England mounted expeditions to northern as well as western parts of the island and entered into relationships with the leaders on their frontiers. In this chapter, ‘the border’, English political control in Wales, and English alliances are closely examined.

Keywords:   English control, Wales, Cornwall, England, border, political control, alliances
