Brut y Tywysogyon or the Chronicle of the Princes: Red Book of Hergest Version

Thomas Jones (ed.)
Trans: Thomas Jones

(Cardiff 1955)

The Brut y Tywysogyon is a valuable source for the history of medieval Wales but also provides important information about contemporary events in England and elsewhere. Whilst there is no surviving copy of the original thirteenth-century Latin text, three independent Welsh translations are extant - the `Peniarth MS. 20 version', `the Red Book of Hergest version' and the `Brenhinedd y Saesson version'.
