Br23 =25 William de Braose Baron of Brecknock and Abergavenny b c1197 in Brecon, probably between 1197 and 1204. The Welsh, who detested him and his family name, called him Gwilym Ddu, Black William. He succeeded his father in his various lordships in 1227, including 10th Baron Abergavenny and Builth. d 02.05.1230 He was captured by the Welsh forces of Prince Llywelyn the Great, in fighting in the commote of Ceri near Montgomery, in 1228. William was ransomed for the sum of £ 2,000 and then furthermore made an alliance with Llywelyn, arranging to marry his daughter Isabella de Braose to Llywelyn's only legitimate son Dafydd ap Llywelyn. However on a later visit to Llywelyn during Easter 1230 William de Braose was found in Llywelyn's private bedchamber with Llywelyn's wife, Joan Plantagenet Pl26, Lady of Wales. Llywelyn had William publicly hanged on 2 May 1230, possibly at Crogen, near Bala, or near Llywelyn's palace at Abergwyngregyn.
