Heritage Minister Alun Ffred Jones will join members of the Gwenllian Society for a special ceremony to rename one of the mountains in Snowdonia in honour of Princess Gwenllian, the daughter of Llywelyn, the last native Prince of Wales.
Carnedd Uchaf will now be named Carnedd Gwenllian. Other summits in the Carneddau range have already been named Carnedd Llywelyn and Yr Elen after her parents Llywelyn and Eleanor. The new name will also be used in the latest editions of Ordnance Survey maps for the area.
The Heritage Minister said: â€œI am pleased to join members of the Gwenllian Society for the renaming of Carnedd Gwenllian. In the Senedd earlier this week, I announced my strategic statement for the historic environment of Wales and as part of this work, I want to see more local projects which celebrate place names and local heritage.
â€œThis landscape has deep historical links with the royal family of Gwynedd and so the association of the Carneddau with members of that family will provide the opportunity to highlight the key role that the mountains of Eryri and the wider landscape of North Wales played in their story.â€
