    Notes 
    • Reginald had seizen of his father's lands May 26, 1216, followingthedeath of his brother Giles. From DougThompson,http://freespace.virgin.net/doug.thompson/BraoseWeb/index1.htm:'Reginald supported Giles in his rebellions against King John. Theywereboth active against the King in the barons' war. Neither waspresent atthe signing of Magna Carta because they were still rebelswho refused tocompromise. K. John aquiesced to Reginald's claims tothe de Braoseestates in Wales in May 1216. He became Lord of Brecon,Abergavenny,Builth and other Marcher Lordships but was very much avassal of LlewelynFawr, Prince of Gwynedd and now his father-in-law.Henry III restoredReginald to favour and the Bramber estates(confiscated from William byK. John) in 1217. At thisseemingbetrayal, Rhys and Owain, Reginald'snephews who were princesof Deheubarth, were incensed and they tookBuilth (except the castle). Llewelyn Fawr also becameangry and beseigedBrecon. Reginald eventually surrendered toLlewelyn and gave upSeinenydd (Swansea). By 1221 they were at waragain with Llewelyn layingseige to Builth. The seige was relieved byHenry III's forces. From thistime on Llewelyn tended to support theclaims of Reginald's nephew Johnconcerning the de Braose lands.Reginald was a witness to the re-issue ofMagna Carta by Henry III in1225.
