Name: Ivor Bach ap Ifor
Change Date: 3 MAY 2006
By his marriage to Nest, heiress to the Lordship of Senghenydd,
Ivor Bach gained an almost inaccessible and thoroughly Welsh territory
with a frontier which approached in dangerous proximity to the Norman
Castle at Cardiff.
This was to provoke trouble and make Ivor Bach famous in Welsh history.
In 1158 Little Ivor (Bach means little) in a land dispute with the Earl
of Gloucester, raided his Castle at Cardiff and kidnapped the Earl, his
wife and son and held them in the wild hills of Senghenydd, near
Caerphilly, until the dispute was resolved. Following this Ifor Bach's
son Griffith married Mabel a daughter of the Earl.
