Product description

Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth is an exciting book about some little-known Gower history. What began with a curiosity about the heyday of Swansea Castle, resulted in the only book about the life of Alina de Breos and the part Swansea and Gower played in the toppling of Edward II from the throne. Alina's husband John de Mowbray took control of the Lordship of Gower in 1320, in an attempt to secure her inheritance. But her father had sold it to the king's favourite, and the king took it back. The Marcher Barons sided with de Mowbray and rebelled against the king. It eventually led to the king's downfall, but Alina and John paid a heavy price.
