AbstractThe March of Wales, that network of forty or so more or less independent lordships on the western border of England, served many purposes. Primarily the lordships formed a border zone between the English and the Welsh. They also served as power bases and sources of income for their lords, which included some of the most powerful magnates in the English realm. The March was a place of contrasts and complexities, reflecting the ambiguities of its cultural, social, and legal status. This session looks at marcher lordships on the Welsh side of the border.
