Rhys ap Gruffudd, also known as the Lord Rhys, was a Welsh king and warrior of exceptional abilities. During his reign (1155–1197) he reversed decades of Norman dominance and restored the kingdom of Deheubarth to native rule. This feat was unrivaled in northwestern Europe and made him the most powerful man in Wales. Although also remembered as a patron of culture and a shrewd diplomat, his career was primarily that of a successful soldier.
