Cardiff City, or Dinas Caerdydd, has been the capital city of Wales since 1955 and is the most important administrative, shopping, and cultural centre in the country. It is also the headquarters for many national organisations and government departments, including the the home of the Senedd (the Wales Parliament) It is also an important industrial centre and also a hub for commerce, law, higher education, media, and independent film production. Here are 25 points in the history of Cardiff in the two hundred years from 1800 to 1999.
Cardiff in Welsh is "Caerdydd". The origins of the name Caerdydd are a point of debate but are widely believed to have come from an English corruption of the original Welsh title Caer-Taff (Fort on the Taff). Others believe that Caerdydd derives from the Middle Welsh word Caerdyf. Whatever its background, Cardiff in Welsh is firmly established as "Caerdydd"!!!
