Roger Mortimer (1231-1282), 1st Baron Wigmore, was the son of Ralph de Mortimer and his wife, Gwladus Ddu - daughter of Llywelyn the Great. He married into another Marcher family, that of de Braose. He was at times an enemy, at times an ally, of Llywelyn the Last, and it was as a result of his double-dealing that Llywelyn was lured into the ambush that killed him.
