"I AM NO FRIVOLOUS MINSTREL": THE WELSH BARDS AND KING EDWARD I
After his military and economic defeat of the Welsh in 1282, King Edward I of England realized the most effective means of controlling Wales was by undermining the efficacy of its culture. This thesis argues the definitive role of the Welsh bardic tradition in the historical context of Edward's understanding that cultural domination was as vital to the total sublimation of the Welsh as were their military and economic defeats. While many historians have examined Edward's military and economic campaigns against the Welsh, few have concentrated on his understanding that dominating thirteenth-century Welsh cultural coherence was Edward's most important methodology.
