King Edward III by Tricia-Danby King Edward III by Tricia-Danby
King Edward III (1327-1377 AD)

Son of Edward II of Carnarvon

Edward did spend most of his youth in his mother’s court. Just 14 years of age – he was crowned after his father was deposed (and later killed).

His mother, Queen Isabella and her lover, Roger Mortimer, tried a three-years-domination of young Edward … after those three years, Edward instigated a palace revolt in 1330 and assumed control of the government.

Mortimer was executed and Isabella was exiled from court.

War occupied the largest part of Edward’s reign.

Edward learned from the mistakes of his dear father and affected more cordial relations with the nobility than any previous monarch.

The last years of Edward’s reign were full of grief (after the death of his beloved son, Edward (the Black Prince)) and the death of his wife, Philippa, in 1369. He did choose Alice Perrers as his mistress after the death of his beloved wife.

With Edward in his dotage and the Black Prince ill, Perrers and William Latimer (the chamberlain of the household) dominated the court with the support of John of Gaunt. Edward, the Black Prince, died in 1376.

King Edward III was one of the most successful English monarchs of the Middle Ages.
