Born on Ynys Mon (Isle of Anglesey, Northern Wales) in 1387, Angharat is the daughter of a wealthy landed knight, and therefore a member of the Welsh gentry. She grew up entranced by the legends and lore of her people - most especially the Arthurian myth cycles and the ancient British mythology collection known as the Mabinogion. Blessed to be born with an unusually educated grandmother and doting grandfather, Angharat is literate in Welsh and fluent in both French and English, as well as her native tongue.

She was fostered by her aunt and uncle in Eryri (Snowdonia, mountainous North Wales), where her greatest joys included reading, singing and other bardic pursuits, as well riding her pony, Gwynn. Angharat is a proud patriot and early supporter of Owain Glyn Dwr, who during her lifetime has lead the Welsh to freedom from Norman oppression. When not serving as courtier at Glyn Dwr's court at Harlech or visiting family on Ynys Mon, she resides on gwely land in Snowdonia, near Lake Glaslyn.
