  • Elizabeth was born in the new castle just finished by her father in his newly conquered domain of Wales.  It was in the town known as Ruthin, or Welsh Rhuddlan, in the county called Flint, which was incorporated in the new county of Clwyd created in 1974.

    "Rhuddlan, community and district (borough), Clwyd county, northeastern Wales. The settlement, located at the head of the fertile Vale of Clwyd, grew up around a castle dating back to 1073. The castle now standing in Rhuddlan was completed by Edward I of England in 1282.... In 1282 Edward I's queen, Eleanor of Castile, gave birth to a daughter in Rhuddlan castle, and in 1284 Edward I issued, from Rhuddlan, the Statute of Rhuddlan providing for the government of the conquered principality of Wales. In 1399 Richard II was held in the castle on his way to Flint, where he formally surrendered his crown to Henry Bolingbroke. During the English Civil War, the castle fell in 1646 to General Mytton, a well-known Parliamentary leader and commander."
