Isabella of France
Birth: 1292
City of Paris
Īle-de-France, France
Death: Aug. 23, 1358
Castle Rising
Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough
Norfolk, England

British Monarch. Queen consort of King Edward II. Daughter of Philippe IV the Fair of France and Joan of Navarre. She married Edward in 1308, shortly after he'd ascended the throne. Isabella never held the title of Princess of Wales, as portrayed in the film Braveheart. Though the marriage produced 4 children, Edward had homosexual preferences, and the union was not a happy one. When her brother Charles IV of France seized Edward's French holdings, Isabella sailed to France to raise an army against her husband. There she became involved with Roger Mortimer, Earl of March. Together the lovers raised an army and invaded England, forcing Edward to abdicate in favor of his eldest son, Edward III. The young king was only 14, and Isabella and Mortimer ruled as regents. They plotted to kill the deposed king (some believe they did cause his death), but Edward III remembered their disloyalty, and had Mortimer executed for treason. His mother was forced to retire to Castle Rising in Norfolk, where she died. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
