950 - 1415

Wales has its own native law-making tradition which can be traced back to the mid 10th Century. Hywel Dda (Hywel the Good) is reputed to have overseen the codification and re-ordering of Welsh law during this period. However, the failure of the final great rebellion led by Owain Glyn Dŵr (1400-c.1415), who organised parliaments in Machynlleth and Harlech, brought an end to native Welsh law.
