The effigy of Gruffydd ap Dafydd Goch is to be found in St Michael's Church Betws-y-Coed, Conwy County, North Wales. The lifesize stone effigy commemorates the local Knight known as Gruffydd ap Dafydd Goch, grandson of Dafydd, the brother of Llewelyn ab Gruffydd, the last true Prince of Wales. Gruffudd ap Dafydd Goch died c.1365 and is buried at the church. The old church of St Michael's was left to fall into disrepair for many years but fortunately for the church and indeed the memory of Gruffydd ap Dafydd Goch the church has been sensitively restored and the stone effigy of Gruffydd has also been restored ...to pride of place within the church. A stone effigy of Hywyl Coetmor the son of Gruffudd ap Dafydd Goch can be found nearby in Llanrwst Parish Church.
