  1. Jesus. Just reading some of the comments on this video. Some people are really giving us Welsh a bad name. So what if the narrator of this video isn't Welsh, or even British? So what if some of the words are mispronounced? Instead of bitching about it and making us look like a bunch of twats, how about providing some constructive, friendly, helpful comments on how to pronounce them correctly? Welsh is a difficult language for those who haven't grown up with it, and even our nearest neighbours can't pronounce it.

  2. Is it true that people from Bretagne and Welsh people have one root? I mean are they one nation?

  3. King Arthur & Merlin were Welsh(so were Taliesin & Cerridwen) & most of the earliest legends about them originated from Wales, therefore they were of WELSH heritage, NOT "english heritage", despite what the english(or scots)want to say.✔💯
    Cymru am byth!❤🖕

  4. ffs if your going to do facts at least get the first fact right,600 castles? wrong 641 castles i think you will find,shall edit as we go lol,the welsh dragon was adopted from Owain Glyndŵr,the last TRUE prince of wales's flag,although some say he chose the flag because of the "pendragon" influence
