The Owain Glyndŵr Society was established in 1996 as the result of an initiative by Adrien Jones of Llandeilo. Its overarching aim is to honour the memory of one of the greatest figures in Welsh history. In addition, it has three specific aims:


  1. To erect a fitting monument to Owain Glyndŵr;
  2. To attempt to identify the grave of Owain and mark it appropriately;
  3. To endow a scholarship in his name.


The Society has already achieved one of its aims. A monument was unveiled in Machynlleth on September 16th 2000 to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Owain’s proclamation as Prince of Wales.


The society has been active in enhancing awareness of Owain’s massive contribution to Welsh history by:


Campaigning vigorously - and the campaign is continuing - for greater recognition within the Welsh   National Assembly for Owain’s unique contribution to our history.



The society is non-political and non-sectarian. It has the support of prominent figures in Welsh life, including members of all the major political parties from the Welsh Assembly and both Houses of Parliament. It operates a full bilingual policy, and is a registered charity (Registered Charity Number 1073847).


For further information contact one of the Society’s officers; better still, why not join the Society.
