How did England conquer Wales?

What did the English do to the Welsh?

The Laws in Wales Acts of 1535–1542 annexed Wales to England, abolished the Welsh legal system, and banned the Welsh language from any official role and status. It also allowed members representing Wales to be elected to Parliament for the first time, although these were often not Welsh.

Why is there no king of Wales?

King of Wales was a very rarely used title, because Wales, much like Ireland, never achieved a degree of political unity like that of England or Scotland during the Middle Ages.

What color eyes do Welsh have?

The Welsh sometimes seem easily categorised on a superficial level. You either have the dark, swarthy customers with near-black eyes or the pale- skinned, finer-boned lot with beautiful, startling blue eyes.
