    While campaigning in the Builth region Llywelyn was killed on 11 Dec. 1282 , an event which virtually brought Welsh political independence to an end. He did not die in open battle, but on the banks of the Irfon , at the hands of one who was unaware at the time of his victim's identity. His head was later sent for public display in London , the body being interred by the Cistercians of Cwm Hir ? one of the houses of an Order to which the prince had been much attached and in which he found some of his most loyal supporters.
