Sir: In school, I learned that Owain Glyndwr, although failing in his attempt to regain Welsh independence, nevertheless saved us from absorption into a region of England. However, when I taught in England, I was told he was a rebel against the crown and a traitor. Had he been caught, he'd have been hanged, drawn and quartered but there are statues to him in Wales.
