Monmouth is the historic county town of Monmouthshire, Wales. It is situated where the River Monnow meets the River Wye, within of the border with England. The town is northeast of Cardiff, and west of London. It is within the Monmouthshire local authority, and the parliamentary constituency of Monmouth. Monmouth's population in the 2011 census was 10,508, rising from 8,877 in 2001.The town was the site of a small Roman fort, Blestium, and became established after the Normans built a castle here after 1067. Its medieval stone gated bridge is the only one of its type remaining in Britain. The castle later came into the possession of the House of Lancaster, and was the birthplace of King Henry V in 1387. In 1536, it became the county town of Monmouthshire.Monmouth later became a tourist centre at the heart of the Wye Valley, as well as a market town. It now serves as a shopping and service centre, and as a focus of educational and cultural activities for its surrounding rural area.
