9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Mike Cunha VINE VOICE on December 19, 2011
Format: Paperback
"The Welsh Kings: Warriors, Warlords and Princes" by Kari Maund is like sauvignon blanc: it can be dry but ultimately it satisfies the palate.

The "Warriors, Warlords and Princes" subtitle aptly summarizes the history of Wales from the end of Roman rule to the final subjugation of the last independent kingdom in 1283. From its sparsely-recorded days of early Welsh warriors carving rough kingdoms from the detritus of the receding Roman tide, the book moves on to the warlords of the eighth, ninth and tenth centuries resisting invading Irishmen, Norsemen and Saxons and on through the slow onslaught of the conquering Normans until Powys Wenwynwyn converted to a lordship under the rule of King Edward I.

The author has researched the subject thoroughly. Maund provides a complete history from the fifth through the thirteenth centuries AD as told through the recorded histories of its many rulers. The names are repetitive to the point of dizziness (enough Gruffudds, Llywelyns and Owains to make your head spin with only the occasional Hywel or Bleddyn to provide relief) but the important part is the narrative of development from independent and competitive fiefdoms to eventual vanquishing by the encroaching English.

"The Welsh Kings" could have used more detailed maps, and perhaps a timeline where major figures stood out prominently. It could definitely have used shorter paragraphs. Overall however, Maund's "The Welsh Kings" is a valuable work for the serious historian and a rich source of early Welsh history.
