In the summer of 1287, Rhys ap Maredudd, the Lord of Dryslwyn rebelled against King Edward I. Although Rhys ap Maredudd had assisted the English King in the past, he accused Edward of treating him unfairly over taxes. The rebels burned several towns including Swansea and Carmarthen.
The King replied to the Welsh rebelion by raising an army at Gloucester to be commanded by the Earl of Cornwall. The army besiged Dryslwyn Castle and the seige lasted three weeks before the castle fell after the curtain walls were undermined. Rhys ap Maredudd managed to escape before the castle was captured.
