Merthyr Tydfil is a town in South Wales and also a county borough, administered from Merthyr as it is known locally. Legend has it that the town got its name because of a girl who was martyred in the area. Merthyr means ‘martyr’ in English and Tydfil was the girl’s name. This occurred at some time around 489 AD and the town, when founded was named in her honour.
Much later in its history, the town was the backdrop for the Merthyr Rising of 1831 which had its root in the fact that the rich industrialists paid low wages and insisted that workers bought things from “truck” shops which they owned. Richard Lewis (Dic Penderyn) was tried and hanged for allegedly stabbing an English soldier in the leg. His trial was conducted in English, which he did not speak. He is now often referred to as the first working-class martyr.
