Note

Murdered at Pontefract (reputedly disembowelled by a red-hot poker)
He was the first English Prince of Wales & invested at Caernarfon Castle in 1301.The castle was built under the order
of his father Edward I, one of the many castles built during his father's reign.

EDWARD II (1284-1327) was one of the most unsuccessful kings in English history. He was a poor general and was
disliked by nearly all his barons and even by his wife, Queen Isabella.

Edward, a member of the Plantagenet royal family, was born in Caernarfon, Wales. He was the first heir to the English
throne to receive the title Prince of Wales. He succeeded his father, Edward I, in 1307. The young king's reign was
troubled by many political trials and executions. In 1314, he lost an important battle to the Scottish leader Robert
Bruce at Bannockburn, Scotland.

In 1325, Queen Isabella visited France. From there, she and her lover, Roger Mortimer, organized an invasion of
England. They and their supporters forced Edward to give up the throne to his son Edward III in 1327. Edward II
was murdered that year.

House of Angevins. 8 Jul 1307 > 24 Jan 1327 = reign of Edward II of England

24 Jan 1327 = Edward II forced to abdicate.

He was not interested in fighting and upset the barons because he only listened
to friends. The barons murdered Gaveston, one of these friends, when Edward
would not send him away. The Scots began to beat the English & Edward was so
unpopular that he had to give up the throne.

Roger Mortimer, with his mistress, Edward's estranged wife Isabella, invaded
England in 1326 to seize power. Their army was completely successful and Edward
was deposed. The Despensers, father and son (friends of the king), were
captured and executed. Edward was imprisioned in Kenilworth Castle, and then
Berkley Castle in Gloucestershire, and eventually murdered (1327),on the orders
of Isabella and Mortimer. His death was particularly grusome as the order for
his execution stipulated that no external marks should be left which would
betray violence. The only way to do this was by disembowelment with a red hot
iron inserted into the rectum, a conventional form of death for homosexuals at
the time.

Edward II

Edward II (reigned 1307-27) had few of the
qualities which made a successful medieval king.
He surrounded himself with favourites, and the
barons, feeling excluded from power, rebelled.
Throughout his reign different baronial groups
struggled to gain power and control the King. The
nobles' Ordinances of 1311, which attempted to
limit royal control of finance and appointments,
were ignored by Edward. Large debts (many
inherited) and the Scots' victory at Bannockburn
made Edward more unpopular. Finally, in 1326,
Edward's wife, Isabelle of France, led an invasion
against her husband. In 1327 Edward was made to
renounce the throne in favour of his son, Edward,
and was later murdered at Berkeley Castle.

Additional Information:

Edward II was born to Edward I and Eleanor of Castille. He was the fourth son of his father, and succeeded to the
throne upon Edward I's death in 1307. He married Isabella, the daughter of Philip IV of France, and she bore him four
children, two sons and two daughters.

The greatest accomplishment of Edward was losing Scotland to Robert I, Robert the Bruce. Edward spent more time with
his male lovers, notable Piers Gaveston, than running the country. The nobles rebelled against the decadent king, and
he had them executed. These rebellions opened the door for Robert Bruce to reconquer much of what Scotland had lost to
Edward I. His victory at Bannockburn secured Scottish independence from 1314 until 1707.

In 1324, Edward sent his son to France to negotiate a peace between England and France. Roger Mortimer became
Isabella's lover and lead an invasion of England in 1326 and captured Edward II. He was deposed and replaced by his
son. Edward died in captivity in 1327.
