Character description

Edward II (1284-1327), King of England 1307-1327. Son of Edward I, but because his older brothers died young, he was still inexperienced when he came to the throne. He inherited the great war with Robert Bruce of Scotland, which he lost at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. By that time, he was already in conflict with his nobles -- a conflict brought on by his extreme favour toward Piers Gaveston. After Gaveston's murder, he came to favor the elder and younger Despensers. Baronial conflicts continued throughout his reign. Eventually his own queen rebelled against him; Edward was overthrown in 1326 and replaced by his young son Edward III; he was murdered in 1327.
