Background:

Llywelyn ein llyw olaf (aka Llyewlyn ap Gruffudd) was the king of Wales in 1258 until his death at Cilmeri in 1282.

To this day a stone from centuries ago still stands in Cilmeri. Llywelyn was killed around the area of that stone. The stone stands as a sign to the people of Wales to forget about

the negative past and to look to the positivity in the future.

A poem written by Iwan Llwyd creates this message. The poem is called "11.12.82" which is the date of Llywelyn's death. The poem itself has 6 stanzas, the first 5 stanzas refer to

the negativity in the death of a great king and how everybody remembers that negativity. Then the 6th stanza tells us to look to the future and remember Llywelyn as the great king

he was and not remember his death. It roughly translates to:

“… then screamed the baby

And the winters melted

And the breeze that froze Irfon…

The silence broke

And the challenge of a new century horrified her cry”

Being Welsh, this story is important to me and as Llywelyn was a king who commanded an army, I decided to create a map to remember the king. I named the map "Re-written History"

because this prevents the negativity coming back. Nobody tries to lose in games and so they will retry until they win. That's the attitude this map should bring out. By re-writing

history, you can make the future better!
