Myths About the Morgans of Tredegar House

Myths About The Morgans of Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales, Busting the History Fraudsters : An Expose from Author William Cross, FSA Scot


An illustrated talk from William Cross based on his best selling book " Myths About the Morgans", published in 2018.

Among the myths about the Morgans of Tredegar House is that they are descended from the Welsh Princes.

Some also claim they have a family link to the notorious Captain Henry Morgan, the blood thirsty pirate of the Caribbean. Whilst at least one Lord Tredegar, Evan Morgan, pictured here, is dubbed ‘Cardinal Morgan’, the Pope’s right hand man in Wales’.

Such myths are often romantic notions substituted for fact. Others are inventions. So what is the truth?

There are plenty of wonderful, established true stories about the Morgans and collaterals without adorning the tales told to the visitors with myths, inaccuracies and fake stories.

In this talk William Cross (author of eight books on the Morgans) sets out to bust some of the myths.
