Pretty much what they said above – although the Welsh did put together some cavalry later on rather than just being mounted infantry.

I’d be very careful of 19th century Victorian Romantic interpretations of Uchelwr, just as I would be of Victorian Romantic interpretations of Scots Highlanders.

Think relatively poor nobility, without the feudal overtones – good luck working out Welsh early medieval societal relationships, steer clear of anyone with an agenda – that means everyone – think Irish history with bitter internecine language overtones! (West/North/Central/South West Welsh is better than your Welsh!)
