Glendower does not speak English with a Welsh accent. He was 'train'd up 
in the English court'. He is no Fluellen.  What he also speaks is of 
course the Welsh language. This scene raises issues of a crucial nature 
in respect of the entity that we call 'Britain', and the role of English 
within in it. They remain to this day.
