1277--EdI claimed overlordship of all the Welsh Principalities and sent in an
army to back his claim.  
1283--by this year EdI had effectively conquored Wales.
1301--EdI begins the custom of crowning the heir to the throne "Prince of
Wales."  The border regions become Marcher States, but Wales proper is
governed by the heir to the English throne.  However, their courts and their
laws were Englsih.  Welsh government continues in this fashion until Henry
VIII abolished the seperate Welsh and English govenments and brought Wales
completely under Englsih government in 1534.
