Roald Dahl: WBI

Undoubtedly the most famous Welshman of Norwegian extraction, Roald Dahl was born into a wealthy family of Cardiff ship owners. It was at the Cathedral School in Llandaff, he later recalled, that he developed a fascination with sweets that would later provide the inspiration for one of his most famous books.

With the opening of the new Burton/Depp movie of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last Friday in the UK, I am pleased to announce Dahl's official elevation to the status of a Welsh Born Icon.
