A SWORD, dagger and crown dedicated to Owain Glyndwr were transported to Corwen for Owain Glyndwr Day on September 16.

After almost 20 years in Machynlleth, this sword and a replica of Owain’s dagger and crown made their way along the route from Owain’s family land in Glyndyfrdwy to Corwen on the Llangollen Railway.

The dagger, which matches the sword, was presented to Corwen Town Council, by Embassy Glyndwr in 2004.

The 44-inch long sword weighs more than eight pounds and is modelled on the one Glyndŵr wields on his seal.

On one side of the guard are the words Tywysog Cymru (Prince of Wales) 1400-16, and around the pommel is the warlord’s full name “Owain ap Gruffydd Fychan”.

Embassy Glyndŵr said in 2004 that this sword would act in place of Welsh “national treasures and symbols of statehood” lost after the conquest of Wales by Edward I in 1282-83.

The sword, a crown and the dagger were presented to Amgueddfa Corwen Museum on the 16 September, Owain Glyndŵr Day, on loan from Embassy Glyndŵr and Corwen Town Council respectively.

With the help and support of Llangollen Railway, the Embassy Glyndwr party boarded the train from Glyndyfrdwy with the artefacts and brought them to Corwen Station.

The party then proceeded to Corwen Square and assembled at the Owain Glyndwr statue.

Representatives of the Corwen Owain Glyndŵr Day Festival laid a wreath on the monument before a trustee of the Amgueddfa Corwen Museum received the sword and crown from one of the Glyndŵr Embassy representatives.

The dagger was presented to the Amgueddfa Corwen Museum trustee by Cllr Gordon Hughes on behalf of Corwen Town Council.

The artifacts were then escorted by the party to the museum, where they are available for public viewing.
