    FALSE!!! From the BBC website: Evidence: The claim comes from a gruesome order issued by Henry, Prince of Wales, in 1403. After Welsh uprisings in the city, the prince demanded that the Welsh be “driven without the walls of the city”.

    The prince, later King Henry V, said: “no Welshman, or any person of Welsh extraction or sympathies, of whatsoever state or condition, remain within the walls of the said city [Chester]… under pain of decapitation”.

    Verdict: Myth. The prince threatened the Welsh with execution if they did not leave Chester. Fortunately for Welsh people, even if this was intended to incite the people of Chester to kill, the prince’s order has since been superseded by murder and manslaughter laws, as well as the universal right to life under the Human Rights Act
