There was a documentary on recently, may have been PBS, about him. He ended up with Chepstow and Pembroke Castles through marriage.
Must have had some balls because he faced down Richard the Lionheart when fighting for his father and lived to tell the tale. But then Richard wasn’t daft and needed someone of that military stature when he got the crown and intended to go a’Crusading.
Quite a bloke.
