1232 James ap Gruffydd was born to a Welsh Baron of the Marches Gruffydd of Gwyn and his serving maid while on service in the holy land following the Sixth Crusade. During the Seventh Crusade James first saw action at the Battle of Harbiya 1244 as an attendant to his father. He later saw service to the french King Louis IX at court in Acre. Following his father's death James returned to Wales to claim his birthright and Castle Gwyn (the White Castle) only to find the lands safely in the hands of his older sister whom he had never known existed and Wales fighting for its sovereignty with Henry III. With the rise of Prince Llewellyn as the last 'Prince of Wales' James openly declared himself for Wales and swore himself into service. He added Llewellyn to his name. In 1262 Henry III offered James the Baronetcy and Castle Gwyn (http://www.castlewales.com/white.html) outright. He now spends his time between defending the Marches from Welsh incursion and travelling about the Holy Land with the Templars.
