Lady Margaret de Fiennes Mortimer
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1270
Caen, France
Death: Feb. 7, 1333
Herefordshire, England

Margaret, daughter of Sir William de Fienes, the 2nd cousin of Eleanor of Castile, Queen of Edward I, by Blanche de Brienne, married Edmund de Mortimer about 1285. Dower was assigned to Margaret de Fiennes, 25 Sep 1304. The castle of Radnor was restored to her, as her dower, after seizure upon her son Roger's forfeiture. Her presence in those parts was too great an encouragement to the contrariants to be suffered, and she was therefore lodged in various places (in Hants, in Skipton-in-Craven and Pontefract Castles, and in Elstowe nunnery) by order of the King. Her lands, which had been seized in 1322, were restored in 1328. In 1330 a papal indult was issued for her. She died 7 February 1333/4.
