William IV Merthyr Tydfil Wales, Police Constable's Painted Ebonised Truncheon. POL 407 - POL 407
Merthyr Tydfil located north of Cardiff, Wales is said to be named after Tydfil, a daughter of King Brychan of Brycheiniog. According to her legend, she was slain at Merthyr by pagans around 480AD; the place was subsequently named Merthyr Tydfil in her honour. Although merthyr generally means "martyr" in modern Welsh, the meaning here is closer to the Latin martyrium: the mausoleum or church built over the relics of a martyr. Policing Merthyr Tydfil was an arduous task - in the years since the first iron furnace had been erected in the district, the town had developed from a hamlet inhabited by shepherds and farmers to a sprawling mass of inelegant buildings housing a population three times as great as that of Cardiff and Swansea put together. William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 – 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and King of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death in 1837. This is an original painted ebonised Police truncheon to Merthyr Tydfil Police. The truncheon is 18 ¼” length and has a grooved grip holed for wrist strap. It has a highly coloured Kings Crown with Royal Cypher WR (William Rex) together with ‘Merthyr’ in bold lettering & Prince of Wales type Ostrich Feathers / fleur-de-lys device.
