Following the Norman Conquest, the Anglo-Welsh border region of the Marcher lords became a classic frontier society, its difference from the rest of England marked by language and ethnicity and by the often violent military nature of its local rulers. This study traces the history of the main lordships, from pre-1066 Norman involvement in the region to the role of the Mortimers of Ludlow in late medieval politics and the beginnings of the Tudor dynasty.
