Surely Not

While perusing Ian Mortimer's latest page-turner 1415 Henry V's Year of Glory, I came across the aforementioned king's pardon of one Llywelyn ap Madoc Ddu:

"For all treasons, rapes, murders, rebellions, insurrections, felonies, conspiracies, trespasses, offences, negligencies, extortions, misprisions, ignorances, contempts, concealments and deceptions committed by him."

The pardon claims that Llywelyn was from Builth but hang on a minute, does that really sound like an inhabitant of that peaceful little land beside the Wye?
