Overview

No English queen has drawn more ire than the vilified Queen Isabella. A 12-year-old French girl, she married Edward II in 1308 to forge peace between her native and adopted countries. But Edward preferred the company of his male courtiers, and a frustrated Isabella eventually fled--into the arms of Edward's greatest enemy, Baron Roger Mortimer. Together they raised an army, forced Edward to abdicate (and allegedly had him killed), and ruled England while Isabella's son was a minor.
