I`ve been reading about Llywelyn the Great and wondered about his burial. Wiki says:-

"Llywelyn died at the Cistercian abbey of Aberconwy, which he had founded, and was buried there. This abbey was later moved to Maenan near Llanrwst, and Llywelyn's stone coffin can now be seen in Llanrwst parish church"

His whereabouts seem to be unknown but it seems unlikely that the remains of such a famous man in Wales could be just lost. Maybe the English decided that he shouldn`t have a recognized grave - or his wife Joanna, daughter of King John of England?
