Hanes bywgraffyddol

Geraint Dyfnallt Owen (1908-1993), historian and writer, was the son of poet, writer, journalist, Congregational minister and Archdruid John Dyfnallt Owen ('Dyfnallt'). He was educated at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and the University of Oxford. During the war years he worked for the BBC in London but also served with the armed forces in Rumania. Owen travelled widely in Europe and was particularly interested in the politics and culture of Brittany; he corresponded with the Breton cultural and religious leader Abbé Jean-Marie (Yann-Vari) Perrot and met with many prominent Breton political activists. A prolific writer of historical, political and cultural significance, Owen's published works include Elizabethan Wales (Cardiff, 1962), Rwmania. Pennod mewn gwleidyddiaeth grym (Aberystwyth, 1951), Crisis in Chubut: a chapter in the history of the Welsh colony in Patagonia (Swansea, 1977) and Y blaidd hud a chwedlau eraill (Aberystwyth, 1949), the latter a series of folktales translated from the Rumanian.
