2. Hamelin Plantagenet - was born in 1130 in Normandy, France and died on 2 Apr 1202 in England . He was the son of Count Geoffrey V "le Bon" - "The Handsome" Plantagenet and Concubine Plantagent.
Hamelin married Isabel de Warenne Apr 1164 in E. Surrey, England. Isabel was born in 1137 in Surrey, England. She was the daughter of Earl William de Warenne III and Adela Talvas. She died on 13 Jul 1199 in Lewes, Sussex, England and was buried in Chapter House, Lewes, Sussex, England .

Hamelin - seems to have spent more time at his Yorkshire castle than any of the previous earls; he held the earldom for close on forty years, from 1163 until his death in 1202. It was this period that saw the construction of the great stone keep of the castle and its development as a place suitable for royalty - King John, nephew of Hamelin, did actually stay here in 1201.
 
The cylindrical keep probably dates from around 1180, Hamelin seems to have ordered its construction to his own design, there being no other example of this type of keep anywhere in the country.

Conisborogh Castle

 
A Norman castle belonging to William, Earl Warenne, son-in-law of William the Conqueror. The keep, the most interesting feature of the stronghold, projects slightly beyond the curtain wall near the north-east edge. The plan resembles a circle inscribed within a six sided star. The castle or area where it now stands appears to have belonged to the de Warenne family.
 
William de Warenne was made Earl of Surrey in 1088, and was followed in the same year by his son after William's death in battle. The third Earl died in the Crusades in 1147 leaving no male heir. His daughter, Isabel, married King Stephen's son, William de Blois who became the fourth Earl. But again no male heir was produced. Isabel married Hamelin Plantagenet, Henry II's brother. It is Hamelin who built the stone keep as it appears now at Conisbrough. The castle was visited by Hamelin's nephew King John in March 1202.

3. King Henry II "Curtmantle" Plantagenet - was born on 5 Mar 1132 in Sarthe, France and died on 3 Jul 1189 in Chinon, Indre-et-Loire, France and was buried on 19 Dec 1154 in Westminster Abbey, London, England. He was the son of Count Geoffrey V "le Bon" - "The Handsome" Plantagenet.
King Henry married Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine on 18 May 1152 in Bordeaux, Gironde, France. Queen Eleanor was born in 1123 in Chateau De Belin, Bordeaux, Aquitaine. She was the daughter of Duke Guillaume X of Aquitaine and Eleanor de Chatellerault. She died on 31 Mar 1204 in Poitiers, Poitou, Aquitaine .

Queen Eleanor - In an age known largely for the exploits of kings, princes, dukes, and their warriors, Eleanor of Aquitaine stood out as one of the most remarkable of women. She was the wife and mother of kings and a dominant political force in the Europe of her time.
 
When her fagther died in 1137 she inherited his domain, which was larger than that ruled by the king of France. The same year she married the heir to the French throne, who became King Louis Vii a month afterward. During their 15-year marriage, she exerted considerable influence upon the running of the country and even accompanied him on the Second Crusade from 1147 to 1149. His jealousy led to separation, and the marriage was annulled; but she regained possession of Aquitaine.
 
In 1152 she married Henry Plantagenet, who became Henry Ii of England two years later. Together they had eight children, among whom were Richard I the Lion-Hearted and John, both of whom later became kings of England. This union brought together England, Aquitaine, Anjou, and Normandy under one rule. Two centuries later England's various French possessions became an underlying cause of the Hundred Years' War.
 
After the revolt of her sons against Henry Ii, Eleanor was kept in semi-confinement from 1174 to 1189, when Henry died. She then became active in affairs of state under her son Richard I and, after his death without an heir in 1199, under John. She worked for peace between France and England and helped preserve John's French domains. Eleanor died on April 1, 1204, in the monastery at Fontevrault in Anjou. (Sources: - 1)
  Then King Henry married Rosamond de Clifford. Rosamond was born about 1136 in Clifford Castle, Clifford, Herefordshire, England. She was the daughter of Walter de Clifford and Margaret de Toni. She died about 1176 in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England .

King Henry - was King of England from 1154 to 1189. He succeeded Stephan after invading England in 1153 to promote his claim after Stephen elbowed Henry's mother. Matilda, from the throne.
 
In 1164 Henry became involved in a quarrel with Thomas a Becket whom he had appointed archbishop of canterbury. The controversy ended in 1160 with Becket's murder by four of Henry's knights.
 
From the beginning of his reign, Henry was involved in conflict with Louis Vii, King of France, and later with Louis's successor Philip Ii, over the French provinces that Henry claimed. A succession of rebellions against Henry, headed by his sons and furthered by Philip II and by Eleanor of Aquitane began in 1173 and continued until his death in 1189.
 
During his mother's conflict with Stephen for the English throne he was brought to England. Stephen eventually recognized his claim, and Henry became king of England in 1154 after Stephen's death.
 
Henry II held England and Normandy by his mother's right. From his father he inherited, as French fiefs, the important counties of Anjou, Maine, and Touraine. By his marriage with Eleanor of Aquitaine, whose marriage with the French king Louis VII had been annulled, he acquired Poitou, Guyenne, and Gascony, so that he held most of the British Isles and about half of France.
 
Henry II reestablished law and order after the anarchy of Stephen's reign. He improved the military service by permitting the barons to pay "shield money," or scutage, in place of serving in the army. With this he hired soldiers who would fight whenever and wherever he wished--an important means of maintaining control over the powerful nobles of the land.
 
His greatest work was the reform of the law courts. He brought the Curia Regis (King's Court) into every part of England by sending learned judges on circuit through the land to administer the "king's justice." Thus gradually one system of law took the place of the many local customs that had been in use. He also established the grand jury. Now accusations could be brought by a body of representatives of the community against evildoers who were so powerful that no single individual dared accuse them.
 
The petit jury, also called petty or trial jury, substituted the weighing of evidence and testimony by sworn men for the old superstitious trial by combat or by ordeal. Henry even attempted to bring churchmen who committed crimes under the jurisdiction of the king's courts, but the scandal caused by the murder of Archbishop Thomas Becket in the course of this quarrel forced him to give up this reform.
 
Henry's last years were embittered by the rebellion of his sons, aided by Philip Augustus of France and by their mother, the unscrupulous Eleanor. The king--old, sick, and discouraged--had to consent to the terms demanded of him. When he saw the name of John, his favorite son, among those of his enemies, he exclaimed, "Now let all things go as they will; I care no more for myself, nor for the world."
 
Two days later he died, muttering, "Shame, shame on a conquered king." He was succeeded by his son Richard I, called Richard the Lion-Hearted. After Richard's death, in 1199, John came to the throne.
 
In 1151, Henry burned the town of Nottingham and Nottingham Castle. William Peveril, constable and grandson of the original builder, fled from the Castle to his monastery at Lenton disguised as a monk before going abroad.
 
Henry Ii provided the wherewithal to repair the town and fortify the Castle more in keeping with a royal residence. Several new buildings were constructed including the 'King's bed chamber', a 'house for the King's falcons', and a great hall with aisles in the centre of the Middle Bailey which would hold parliaments and entertainments. At times Henry II held his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine in confinement at Nottingham Castle amongst other castles

King Richard - King of England from 1189-1199.
 
Henry's early years as king found him controlling the rebellious Barons who had used the chaos of the civil war to fortify their homes and illegally control their territories. The castles they built are known as the 'adulterine castles'. In Scotland and Wales Henry stamped his authority, and he began the process of subduing Ireland. Henry was also responsible for bringing in new legal reforms, including in 1166, the Assize of Clarendon which started the jury system.
 
Henry is most famous for his quarrels with his friend Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1164, Henry's Constitutions of Clarendon tried to bring the church into line with the state and one statement required that a member of the church should be tried in a state court, not in a church one. The rift between Henry and Becket forced Becket to leave England. When in 1170, Becket returned to England, an outburst of anger by Henry led to four knights murdering Becket at Canterbury. Although Henry was cleared of any direct involvement of the crime, he did penance before the Cathedral Avrances in Normandy.
 
Henry and his sons also quarrelled which led to conflicts in England and abroad, including a rebellion by his Barons in 1173. Two of his sons were to become kings of England, Richard (the Lion Heart) and John.
 
Conflicts with Eleanor and his sons, helped by Philip Ii of France continued until Henry died in 1189 at Chinon in France. He was succeeded by Richard, his third son.

King John - JOHN OF ENGLAND (1167-1216). Vicious, shameless, and ungrateful, King John has been called the worst king ever to rule England. Yet the very excesses of his reign proved positive in that they provoked such a violent reaction that his subjects revolted and forced him to put his seal on the Magna Carta. This document became the safeguard of English liberty. John's nickname was Lackland because at first he owned no land. Later his father, King Henry II, gave him castles, lands, and revenues in both England and France. John plotted against his father, however, and the discovery of this conspiracy was a factor in the king's death. John's brother, Richard the Lion-Hearted, became king and added to John's possessions. While Richard was absent from England on the Third Crusade, John conspired against him also. When Richard died in 1199, the barons selected John to be their king. This denied the royal claim of Arthur, son of another brother, Geoffrey. Two French provinces fought for young Arthur, but the boy fell into the hands of John and died soon after. During the war John lost all his French possessions except Aquitaine. John then quarreled with Pope Innocent III about the appointment of Stephen Langton as archbishop of Canterbury. John was excommunicated, and England was forbidden all religious services except baptism and extreme unction. The growing discontent of his subjects finally forced John to recognize the new archbishop. When John went to France seeking to regain his lands in Normandy, the barons marched against the king and demanded a charter of liberties. All but a handful of followers deserted John. He was forced to meet the barons at Runnymede on June 15, 1215, and to sign the Great Charter. John had no intention of supporting the charter, however. He recruited a new army and destroyed the estates of the barons. The barons then offered the English crown to Louis, a French prince. In the midst of a war for the throne, John died of a fever. The task of restoring the torn kingdom fell to his nine-year-old son, Henry III.
 
John was on the list of those who had plotted against his father, Henry I, but was not successful in plotting against his brother, Richard. Richard gave him lands in Normandy and England, but these were not enough. While Richard was imprisoned, John unsuccessfully rebelled several times. Upon Richard's return, he was reprimanded and kept out of trouble for the last five years of his brother's reign and earned the succession to the throne.
 
John was respected as successor in England, but in Anjou, Maine, and Touraine Arthur, son of Geoffrey of Brittany, was recognized as sovereign. John persuaded Philip II to oust the twelve-year-old Arthur and became Lord of the Angevin Empire. He then annulled his marriage to Isabella of Gloucester, whom Richard had betrothed to him, and, in an effort to unite the two halves of his empire, married Isabella of Angouleme. Unfortunately, John's bride's former fiance appealed to Philip II, and Philip declared all of John's recent acquisitions forfeit.
 
John captured Arthur shortly after his possessions were forfeited. Arthur disappeared and the murder has never been proven.
 
Determined to get his territory back, John levied high taxes on his nobles. This also came at the time of a conflict with Pope Innocent III. John refused to accept the papal appointment to the position of Archbishop of Canterbury. The pope punished John by placing England and Wales under an interdict and excommunicating John a year later John, however, needed papal support to win his invasion of France. John made England a papal fief and invaded. In 1214, John lost the Battle of Bovines and the English barons had enough.
 
In 1215, the barons seized London and forced John to sign the Magna Carta at Runnymead. John had no intention of living up to the document, and the barons looked to Louis of France, Philip's son, for aid. Louis invaded England in 1216. John died that year in October with a nine-year old son as his successor.
 
John (reigned 1199-1216) was an able administrator interested in law and government but he neither trusted others nor was trusted by them. Heavy taxation, disputes with the Church (John was excommunicated by the Pope in 1209) and unsuccessful attempts to recover his French possessions made him unpopular. Many of his barons rebelled and in June 1215 they forced the King to sign a peace treaty accepting their reforms.
 
This treaty, later known as Magna Carta, limited royal powers, defined feudal obligations between the King and the barons, and guaranteed a number of rights. The most influential clauses concerned the freedom of the Church; the redress of grievances of owners and tenants of land; the need to consult the Great Council of the Realm so as to prevent unjust taxation; mercantile and trading relationships; regulation of the machinery of justice so that justice be denied to no one; and the requirement to control the behavior of royal officials.
 
The most important clauses established the basis of habeas corpus ('you have the body'), i.e. that no one shall be imprisoned except by due process of law, and that 'to no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay right or justice'.
 
The Charter also established a council of barons who were to ensure that the Sovereign observed the Charter, with the right to wage war on him if he did not. Magna Carta was the first formal document insisting that the Sovereign was as much under the rule of law as his people, and that the rights of individuals were to be upheld even against the wishes of the sovereign. As a source of fundamental constitutional principles, Magna Carta came to be seen as an important definition of aspects of English law, and in later centuries as the basis of the liberties of the English people.
 
A peace treaty Magna Carta was a failure and the rebels invited Louis of France to become their king. When John died in 1216 England was in the grip of civil war.

King Henry married Eleanor Berenger de Provence on 14 Jan 1236 in Canterbury Cathedral, Kent, England. Eleanor was born about 1217 in Aix-en-Provence, France. She was the daughter of Raymond Berenger and Beatrice de Savoie. She died on 24 Jun 1291 in Amesbury Monastery, Wiltshire, England .

Eleanor - She was a vigorous and incisive woman and had much influence on her husband, as did her unpopular relatives and other foreign courtiers who followed her to England. During the ascendancy of Simon de Montfort in 1264-65, Eleanor raised mercenaries in France for her husband's cause. She was dispatched to a convent in 1286 but was sometimes consulted by her son, Edward I. (Sources: - 2 - 3)

King Henry - Henry III, King John's son, was only nine when he became King and was crowned King of England on October 28, 1216.. By 1227, when he assumed power from his regent, order had been restored, based on his acceptance of Magna Carta. However, the King's failed campaigns in France (1230 and 1242), his choice of friends and advisers, together with the cost of his scheme to make one of his younger sons King of Sicily and help the Pope against the Holy Roman Emperor, led to further disputes with the barons and united opposition in Church and State. Although Henry was extravagant and his tax demands were resented, the King's accounts show a list of many charitable donations and payments for building works (including the rebuilding of Westminster Abbey which began in 1245).
 
The ruins of Degannwy Castle visible today belong mainly to Henry III's castle. The defences of the bailey - earth banks and ditches on the north side, the base of two D-shaped gatehouse towers, and the curtain wall hastily built by Edward I on the south - can still be recognized. The mass of fallen masonry near the base of the gatehouse is a relic of the demolition of 1263.
 
Henry III built a Dyserth Castle, the ruins of which were destroyed by quarrying around 1914. In 1246 he decided to strengthen the castle with a well, watch tower and large catapult. However, it was besieged by Llywelyn ap Gruffudd and his brother, Dafydd, in 1356 in an attempt to sever its links with Chester. It was finally captured and then destroyed by Llywelyn in 1263.

King Edward - - King of England (1272-1307) completed the conquest of Wales and temporarily subdued Scotland. In 1254 he was made duke of Gascony.
 
In contrast to his father, Edward showed masterfulness in the disputes with the English barons following the governmental reforms instituted by the Provisions of Oxford (1258). He supported Simon de MONTFORT in 1259 but later changed sides.
 
He fought for the king at the Battle of Lewes (1264) and himself defeated Montfort decisively at Evesham (1265), restoring royal power.
 
In 1271-72 he was on crusade at Acre. During the years from 1272, when Edward succeeded his father, to 1290 striking achievements occurred.
 
Edward conquered the Welsh principality of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd in devastating campaigns in 1277 and 1282-83 and built massive castles to keep it secure. In England he held regular parliaments. A program of legislation strengthened royal control over the court system and reformed the tangled feudal land law.
 
After 1294 wars in Scotland and France dominated Edward's reign. The death (1290) of Margaret, Maid of Norway, heiress to the Scottish crown, allowed Edward as suzerain to choose a successor, John de Baliol, and then to claim direct rule over Scotland, which he subdued in 1296. In France the conflict concerned the French king's overlordship over Edward's duchy of Gascony.
 
In 1297, Edward attacked France to assert his rights, but the expedition was cut short by the rebellion in Scotland of Sir William Wallace (from the movie "Braveheart").
 
At the same time the English nobles rebelled, forcing Edward to grant Parliament control over taxes. By a treaty (1303) with PHILIP IV of France, Edward retained Gascony. He failed, however, to quell the risings of Wallace and Robert the Bruce (later ROBERT I), and Scotland remained only half- conquered at his death. He was succeeded by his son Edward II.
 
Edward I (ruled 1272-1307) was one of England's greatest kings. He was a handsome man, with fair hair and ruddy cheeks, and so tall that he was nicknamed Longshanks. He delighted in tournaments and hunting, but he was also practical and hardworking. For seven years before he came to the throne, he was the real ruler for his weak father, Henry III. He was in the Holy Land involved in the crusades when his father died, but there was no question that he would take the throne.
 
Edward has been called the "English Justinian" because, like the Roman emperor Justinian, he organized the laws. His laws were not restatements of existing customs but statutes in the modern sense. Many of them, particularly the land laws, had a long-lasting influence. A statute of 1285 limited church courts to strictly church matters--a change that Edward's great-grandfather, Henry II, had been unable to make because of the murder of Thomas a Becket. Edward also stopped paying a feudal tribute to the pope.
 
Parliament grew in strength during Edward's reign because he continued the policy of Simon de Montfort in summoning to it representatives of the towns and lesser knights. His parliament of 1295 is known as the Model Parliament. In 1297 he reaffirmed the Magna Carta in the famous confirmation of the charters. All of Edward's moves were not fair and admirable ones, however; he forced Jews out of England in 1290.
 
Soon after coming to the throne, Edward conquered Wales and gave to his infant son, Edward, the title prince of Wales. Until 1289 the care of his French possessions, principally Aquitaine, in Southern France, absorbed much of his attention. For the rest of his life, his main concern was Scotland.
 
Edward I was a prolific castle builder. He built an "iron ring" of castles surrounding the coastal fringes of Snowdonia, eventually stretching from Flint around to Aberystwyth. Completed Flint Castle in 1284. Completed construction of Aberystwyth Castle in 1289. The c astle was attacked by the Welsh in 1282, largely burned and briefly captured. He started Harlich Castle in 1283. Caernarfon Castle was begun the same year. It was during his second campaign in Wales that King Edward gained control of the Conwy valley in March 1283. He began work on the new fortress, Conway Castle almost immediately.
 
In 1295 work was begun on the last and largest of the castles to be built by King Edward I in Wales Beaumaris Castle. Raised on an entirely new site, without earlier buildings to fetter its designer's creative genius, it is possibly the most sophisticated example of medieval military architecture in Britain.
 
He conquered the country in 1296; but in 1297 all Scotland rose in revolt against him under the popular leader, William Wallace. Edward defeated Wallace at Falkirk the next year, but the Scots still resisted. Near the end of Edward's reign Scotland found a new leader in Robert Bruce. In 1307 King Edward, then 70 years old, led an army toward Scotland but died before he reached the border.

i.  Princess Elizabeth of England was born on 7 Aug 1282 in Rhuddlan Castle, Flintshire, Wales and died on 5 May 1316 in Quendon, Essex, England .
Princess Elizabeth married Humphrey de Bohun VIII on 14 Nov 1302 in Westminster Abbey, London, England. Humphrey was born about 1276 in Pleshy Castle, Essex, England.. He was the son of Humphrey de Bohun VII and Maud de Fiennes. He died on 16 Mar 1321 in Battle of Boroughbridge, Yorkshire .
See de Bohun family for children.
ii.  Joan of Acre was born in 1272 in Acre, Palestine and died on 23 Apr 1307 in Suffolk, England and was buried in Abbey, Tewksbury, Gloustershire, England .
Joan married Sir Gilbert "The Red Earl" de Clare on 30 Apr 1290. Sir Gilbert was born on 2 Sep 1243 in Hampshire, England. He was the son of Earl Richard de Clare and Maud de Lacy. He died on 7 Dec 1295 in Monmouthshire, England .

Joan - After Gilbert de Clare died in 1295, she married, to her father's great displeasuree, second, Ralph de Monttemer, Earl of Gloucester and Earl of Atholl.
 
She was a remarkable active woman in the dozen years following the Red Earl's death. By the terms of the marriage agreement in 1290 the entire inheritance was enfeoffed jointly on Sir Gilbert and Joan. This meant that it would not be possible for her father, Edward I, to grant her only a third of the estate and control the rest himself during the long minority of their son Gilbert.
 
Joan was thus the sole mistress of the inheritance and she controlled it with remarkable ability. In 1297, much to Edward's displeasure, she secretly married an otherwise obscure knight in her 'familia', Ralph Monthermer.

17. King Edward II of England - was born on 25 Apr 1274 in Carnarvon Castle, Carnarvon , Wales and died on 21 Sep 1327 in Berkeley Castle,Gloucester,Gloucester,England . He was the son of King Edward I "Longshanks" Plantagenet and Princess Leonor of Castile and Leon.
King Edward married Queen Isabella of France on 25 Jan 1307/1308 in Boulogne, Pas-de-Calais, France. Queen Isabella was born in 1292, lived in Paris, France. She was the daughter of King Philip IV "the Fair" of France and Jeanne of Navarre. She died on 22 Aug 1358 in Hertford Castle, Hertford, England and was buried in Grey Friars, Church, London, England .

Queen Isabella - When Charles Iv of France seized Edward's territories in that country, the English king sent Charles' sister Isabella who after Gaveston's death had managed to bear Edward four children, including the future Edward Iii, who now accompanied her to effect an amicable arrangement. She despised her husband, hated the Despensers and now fell in love with Roger Mortimer who, condemned to life imprisonment for rebellion, had escaped from the Tower in 1324 and fled to the French court.

Hertford Castle

 
It was the Normans who first built a castle in Hertford after the battle of Hastings, although the oldest walls still standing today were built as part of Henry II's strengthening works in the 1170's. Ever since, the castle has been the centre of the town and in continual use.
 
It was captured by the French in the 13th century, became a royal palace in the 14th century, and was home to Parliament and the Law Courts when Elizabethan London was gripped by Plague in the 1500's. Shortly after becoming King, Charles I granted Hertford Castle to William Cecil, the Earl of Salibury (whose descendants still own it) and since 1911 it has been used as council offices.
(Sources: - 4)

King Edward - lacked the royal dignity of his father and failed miserably as king. He inherited his father's war with Scotland and displayed his ineptitude as a soldier. Disgruntled barons, already wary of Edward as Prince of Wales, sought to check his power from the beginning of his reign. He raised the ire of the nobility by lavishing money and other rewards upon his male favorites. Such extreme unpopularity would eventually cost Edward his life.
 
King Edward I's dying request was that his son should carry his bones with his army until Robert Bruce was defeated. Edward II as the new king had other ideas. He left Robert alone in the north and returned on London and his friends. It seems that Edward II had no time for his duties as King. He preferred to spend time with his friends and especially Piers Gaveston.

King Edward married Queen Philippa of Hainault on 24 Jan 1327 in York, England. Queen Philippa was born about 1314, lived in Mons,Hainaut,Belgium. She was the daughter of Count Guillaume de Avesnes III and Countess Jeanne de Valois. She died on 14 Aug 1369 in Windsor Castle,Windsor,Berkshire,England .

Queen Philippa - Philippa is remembered by history as a tender-hearted woman, who interceded with her husband and persuaded him to spare the lives of the six burghers of Calais, whom he had planned to execute as an example to the townspeople.

Michael Packe in his book King Edward III gives us a delightful description of the kin
g and queen's first meeting:
 
"He spied on the unwitting sisters, and pounced on the youngest of them, Philippa by name', at the time eight years old and nearest in age to Edward, who was nearly seven years. He had then subjected her to a minute and terrifying scrutiny. Apart from some criticism of her remaining baby teeth (they were 'not so white', he had found little fault with her solid physiognomy. Her hair betwixt blue-black and brown and not uncomely', her forehead large; her eyes blackish brown and deep, her nose though 'somewhat broad at the tip and also flattened', was 'yet no snub-nose'; her mouth was wide and generous, her ears and chin were 'comely enough', her mouth was wide and generous, she was of middle height for her age, well taught, and of 'fair carriage'.
 
'Her neck, shoulders, and all her body and lower limbs are reasonably well shapen; all her limbs are well set and unmaimed; and nought is amiss so far as a man may see. Moreover, she is brown of skin all over, and much like her father; and in all things she is pleasant enough to look at it seems to us.'

 
The Flemish master, Jean de Leige, worked in France and he influenced the English sculpture. Among his most important and representative tomb monuments is that of the queen of England, made in London in 1367. It can be seen, still in an excellent state of preservation, in the choir of the Westminster Abbey. It shows the recumbent figure of Philippa of Hainaut, wife of Edward Iii, who died in 1369. Her features as represented on the tomb give the impression of an individual likeness. The rather pudgy face with its thick neck and double chins suggests a basis in a life-mask. (Sources: - 1)

King Edward - occupation: King of England - Edward's youth was spent in his mother's court and he was crowned at age fourteen after his father was deposed. After three years of domination by his mother and her lover, Roger Mortimer, Edward instigated a palace revolt in 1330 and assumed control of the government. Mortimer was executed and Isabella was exiled from court.
 
War occupied the largest part of Edward's reign. He and Edward Baliol defeated David II of Scotland and drove David into exile in 1333.

At the end of the 14th century, Dunstanburgh Castle passed into the hands of John of Gaunt. He carried out substantial alterations and closed up the entrance to the gatehouse. Having converted the original gatehouse into residential quarters, a second gatehouse was constructed further along the curtain wall, but almost nothing can be seen of this today, other than its foundations.
 
John of Gaunt altered the original castle most obviously in the fact that he created an inner and outer bailey from the existing enclosure. Many of the buildings constructed at the time of the remodelling have long since disappeared, but some fragmentary remains can still be made out along the curtain wall.

You are referring, no doubt, to the place that is now named Beaufort-en-Vallée, but your information is incorrect.
