Llywelyn at Celmeri
28mm Dark Ages Demonstration
The game is based around the Anglo/Welsh wars of the 13th Century. In 1282 Llywelyn was on the run from the forces of King Edward I, who had invaded Wales to put down a rebellion started by Llywelyn's brother. Llywelyn, who had sworn fealty to Edward, decided to side with his brother against the king. Edward saw this as an opportunity to rid himself of the troublesome Welsh princes. The encounter at Cilmeri was accidental. English soldiers were in the area when they chanced upon Llywelyn and his men. In a brief but bloody skirmish Llywelyn and his men were killed.
