Gruffyd brought Gwynedd, then Deheubarth, and finally (though briefly) the whole of Wales under his dominion. The devestation wrought on the English borderland, still not erased at the time of the making of Domesday Book (1086), was probably in large measure due to him. His death meant that the most powerful ruler of independent Wales was destroyed only a few years before the coming of Norman forces to the Anglo-Welsh frontier.
