A first-person retelling of the story of Iolo Morganwg – from his boyhood to the Glynogwr Gorsedd of 1798. Iolo Morganwg had many faces: stonemason, self-taught scholar, poet, hymnist, politician, patriot, revolutionary, druid, failed businessman, drug addict, campaigner for human rights and perpetrator of the greatest act of literary forgery in European history. We follow his adventurous quest to achieve fame for himself, respect for his culture, and freedom from oppression in a malevolent world.
Based on the true story of one of the most colourful characters in Welsh and British history – admired by many as a hero who helped create the identity of modern Wales, and reviled by others as a conman and cheat.
