The Age of Conquest

Edward I took a particular delight in appropriating the residences of the Gwynedd dynasty, thereby making clear to all the definitiveness and finality of his conquest. In August 1284, he set up his court in two of Llywelyn ap Gruffudd's favourite residences, Abergwyngregyn and Caernarfon; he refurbished Llywelyn's hall at Aberconwy and converted it into a privy palace for his son as prospective prince of Wales; he dismantled another of Llywelyn's timber-framed halls at Ystumgwern and had it transported to the inner ward of his new castle at Harlech; and he showed that sentiment could have no place in the victor's heart by ordering the transfer of the abbey of Aberconwy — the favoured Cistercian house of the Gwynedd dynasty and the resting-place of the Llywelyn the Great — seven miles up the Conwy valley to Maenan to make room for his new castle and borough of Conway.
