in consequence of the missive, Yes, you're right, penned by Cheryl
Edward I was Longshanks - the hammer of the Scots, his son Edward II was a bit lilly livered (watch this royal pattern...!) and also "happened to be murdered" by his wife, Isabella, and her lover, Roger Mortimer. Marlowe wrote a play about Edward II - not that I've read it! He's the one you always remember as he was allegedlly murdered with a red hot spit thrust up his nether regions. I wonder how JA would have put that! His son was - originally - Edward III, who overthrew the regency of his Mother and Mortimer. He was killed and she was packed off to Castle Rising Castle, if memory serves.
And tomorrow, we've a couple "more Edwards!!!
