Joan Plantagenet
Birth: Feb., 1334
Death: Sep. 2, 1348

English Royalty. Born at Woodstock Palace, the third child of Edward III, King of England and Philippe de Hainaut. In 1345 she was betrothed to Pedro of Castile, son of Alphonso XI of Castile and set out to meet her husband with a retinue of four ships and some hundred men at arms. The princess' entourage docked at Bordeaux, ignoring warnings of bubonic plague. As her retinue began falling to the plague, Joan was probably moved to the village of Loremo in order to escape the illness. Unfortunately, she fell ill within weeks of the move and succumbed at the age of thirteen. Some scholars believe she was interred at Loremo, others at Bayonne Cathedral. In October, Edward III sent an envoy to Bordeaux in an attempt to regain his favorite daughter's remains and bring them back to London for burial. There is no record, however, of Joan's remains being returned to England, nor any account of a royal funeral extant. She has also been called Joan of England or Joanna of England. A younger sister, born some 20 years after her death, was named for her.
