The Lady of Castell March

Rating
Excerpt from The Lady of Castell March It is just possible that the reader unfamiliar with Welsh History may feel somewhat bewildered at coming upon such a state of society as is implied in the pages following. Unfortunately there is as yet no good history of Wales to which to refer him. But to give some idea of it let him take all that he has read about the Highlands under the clan system, about the Scottish Borders in the old days of the Raiders, and about the Ireland of the Pale. To these add something which outdid them all as fostering turbulence; namely, the Welsh "lordships Marcher" which for centuries wielded the chief influence over the English crown on the one hand and the fortunes of Ireland on the other; making always for the profit of the strong hand. Shake all these together into inextricable confusion and the result will give some idea of the Wales of Tudor times. Out of this cockpit, however, the old trickle of students to Oxford and the Continental seats of learning not only continued but swelled to a recognised stream, an appreciable percentage of which ran the whole course to its natural finish in the Italian Universities, before returning to settle down in England as part of that swarm of Doctors of Divinity, Law or Medicine, familiar to the Welsh reader of Tudor history.
