     "EDWARD "of Windsor", son of EDWARD II King of England & his wife Isabelle de France (Windsor Castle 13 Nov 1312-Sheen Palace, near Richmond, Surrey 21 Jun 1377, bur Westminster Abbey). The Chronicle of Geoffrey le Baker of Swinbrook records the birth “die sancti Bricii confessoris apud Wyndesore” 1312 of “ex Isabella regina...tercius Edwardus”[863]. The Continuatio of the Chronicle of Guillaume de Nangis records the birth "circa Natale Domini" in 1312 of "Eduardo regi Angliæ ex conjuge Izabella...filius...Eduardus"[864]. He was created Earl of Chester 24 Nov 1312. Created Comte de Ponthieu et de Montreuil 2 Sep 1325, and Duke of Aquitaine 10 Sep 1325. Elected Keeper of the Realm at an extraordinary council held in Bristol 26 Oct 1326, after his father fled to Wales. He was proclaimed EDWARD III King of England 25 Jan 1327, under the joint regency of his mother and her lover Roger Mortimer Earl of March. Crowned 1 Feb 1327 at Westminster Abbey: the Chronicle of Geoffrey le Baker of Swinbrook records the coronation 1 Feb, 1327 from the context, “apud Westmonasterium” of “Edwardum Edwardi primogenitum quindecim circiter annorum adolescentem”[865]. He overthrew the regents 20 Oct 1330 and assumed personal rule. He formally assumed the title King of France Jan 1340. As a mark of his love of chivalry, he founded the Order of the Garter in 1348. His reign was marked by a successful constitutional balance and the maintenance of generally good relations with the barons. A contemporary memorandum records the death 21 Jun 1377 “in manerio suo de Shene” of “dominus Edwardus [rege Angliæ et Franciæ]”[866]. The Annals of Bermondsey record the death “1377…21 Jun” of “rex Edwardus tertius” and his burial “apud Westmonasterium”[867].
     "[Betrothed ([1320]) to MARGUERITE de Hainaut, daughter of GUILLAUME III "le Bon" Comte de Hainaut [WILLEM III Count of Holland] & his wife Jeanne de Valois (24 Jun 1310-Le Quesnoy 23 Jun 1356, bur Valenciennes). King Edward II requested papal dispensation for the marriage between “Edwardum filium nostrum primogenitum” and “Margaretam filiam...domini W. Hanoniæ, Holandiæ et Selandiæ comitis ac domini Frisiæ” by charter dated 5 Nov 1320[868]. King Edward II wrote to “domino W, Hanoniæ, Hollandiæ et Selandiæ comiti ac domino Frisiæ” requesting his intervention with papal representatives concerning the marriage (“super contrahendo matrimonio”) between “Edwardum filium nostrum primogenitum” and “--- filiam vestram” by charter dated 30 Mar 1321[869]. It is uncertain whether a betrothal was agreed following negotiations for this proposed marriage.]
     "m (1326, Papal dispensation 30 Aug 1327, by proxy Valenciennes 28 Oct 1327, York Minster 24 Jan 1328) PHILIPPA de Hainaut, daughter of GUILLAUME V “le Bon” Comte de Hainaut Count of Holland & his wife Jeanne de Valois (Valencienne or Mons [1313/14]-Windsor Castle 15 Aug 1369, bur Westminster Abbey). The question of Philippa´s birth date has been studied by Bert M. Kamp who concluded that she was born "about 1314", bearing in mind the series of documents which indicate the earlier negotiations for the betrothal of her future husband to her oldest sister Marguerite[870]. The History of Henricus Dapifer de Diessenhoven records that "dominus Ludewicus et rex Anglie et marchio Iuliacensis" had married "tres…sorores…fillies comitis Hannonie sive Hollandie"[871]. Froissart records the marriage in "1327" [presumably O.S.] of "li jones rois Edouwars" and "Phelippe de Hainnau" in "l´eglise cathedral, que on dist de Saint Guillaume", adding that the king was 17 years old and "la joine roine sus le point de quatorze ans"[872]. Assuming that the last passage should be interpreted as meaning that Philippa was nearly, but not yet, 14 years old, it would place her birth in late January or early February 1314. However, the text may not be totally reliable as King Edward would only have been 16 years old at the time of the marriage if his birth is correctly stated as 13 Nov 1312 as shown below. The papal dispensation for the marriage between “Edvardo regi Angliæ” and “Philippæ natæ...Guillielmi comitis Hanoniæ” is dated 30 Aug 1327[873]. She was crowned Queen 2 or 20 Feb 1328 at Westminster Abbey, and again 18 Feb or 4 Mar 1330 at Westminster Abbey. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death “in dia Assumptionis Beatæ Mariæ” of “domina Philippa regina Angliæ” and her burial “apud Westmonasterium”, dated to 1369 from the context[874].
     "Mistress (1): ([1363/74]) ALICE Perrers née ---, widow of [JOHN] [Janyn] Perrers, daughter of --- (-1400). “Johan de Kendale de Londres taillour” complained that “monseigneur William Wyndesore et Alice sa femme” had wrongfully withheld money from the price of cloth bought by Alice “en Grascherchestrate de Londres al feste de Nativite de Seint Johan le Baptiste lan de regne seigneur Edward xxxiiii” [24 Jun 1360][875]. “Johan de Kendale” requested the king to order “Alice Perers” to pay for cloth bought by “Janyn Perers iadiz baroun la dite Alice qi executrice ele” in “lan...seigneur Edward vostre aiel xxxiiii” [1360][876]. She was the king's mistress from [1363] until his death. The Chronicon Angliæ records that the king fell in love “adhuc vivente regina” with “in Anglia...mulier impudica, meretrix procacissima...Alicia cognomento Perrys, genere infima...cujusdam de villa de Henneye fuerat filia...pellice cujusdam [Lumbardi]” (with other uncomplimentary descriptions of her character)[877]. After King Edward III's death, she was tried for corruption, banished and her goods forfeited. She married secondly ([10 Dec 1374/Apr 1376]) William de Wyndesore, Governor of Ireland, who was summoned to Parliament from 1381 whereby he is held to have become Lord Wyndesore[878]. The Chronicon Angliæ records that “Alicia cognomento Perrys” was found in 1376 to have married “domino Willelmo de Windeshore qui tunc in Hibernia morabatur”, the king declaring that he knew nothing of the marriage[879]. The will of "Alice widow of William Wyndesor Knight", dated 15 Aug 1400, chose burial “in the parish church of Upmynster”, bequeathed property to “Joane my younger daughter my manor of Gaynes in Upminster...Jane and Joane my daughters all my other manors...which John Wyndsore or others have by his consent usurped”, and appointed “Joane my youngest daughter...” among her executors[880]."

; Per Genealogics:
     “Philippa of Holland and Hainault, was born about 1314, the daughter of Willem III 'the Good', count of Holland and Hainault, and Jeanne de Valois. She had been considered as a wife for Edward III of England when she was only eight years old. When Edward III and his mother were told to leave France in 1326 they visited Philippa's parents, giving Edward and Philippa the chance to meet. Papal dispensation was obtained in September 1327, and on 24 January 1328 at York Minster Philippa married King Edward III of England.
     “In 1330 Philippa gave birth to the first of their twelve children. She chose to turn against tradition and breastfeed her baby, although it was then considered improper for noble mothers to do so. To celebrate the baby's birth, there was a grand tournament at Cheapside in London where a viewing tower was built for Philippa and her ladies to watch the spectacle. As the twenty-six knights engaged in the tournament assembled, the scaffolding supporting the tower gave way. Philippa, though shocked, was uninjured but the king ordered the workmen responsible to be arrested and tried. The result would almost certainly have been execution, but Philippa pleaded and saved the men's lives, just as years later she made a historic plea for the brave burghers of Calais when the town surrendered to Edward III.
     “Her husband Edward III appointed Philippa regent on many occasions when he was absent on the Continent. When the Scots invaded England as far south as Durham in 1346, she raised an army, winning the Battle of Neville's Cross on 17 October that year, and taking the Scottish king David II Bruce prisoner. She was responsible for the introduction of weaving into England and was a patron of poets and musicians. She survived the Black Death (1348-1350), but her daughter Joanna, en route to marry the Castilian Prince Pedro 'the Cruel', was struck down and died.
     “As she was kind in a motherly fashion, Philippa became more popular than any of her predecessors. After suffering for about two years of 'a dropsical malady', she died at Windsor on 15 August 1369, aged fifty-eight.”.14

     BIRTH     1292, Paris, City of Paris, Île-de-France, France
     DEATH     23 Aug 1358 (aged 65–66), Castle Rising, Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Borough, Norfolk, England
     British Monarch. Queen consort of King Edward II. Daughter of Philippe IV the Fair of France and Joan of Navarre. She married Edward in 1308, shortly after he'd ascended the throne. Isabella never held the title of Princess of Wales, as portrayed in the film Braveheart. Though the marriage produced 4 children, Edward had homosexual preferences, and the union was not a happy one. When her brother Charles IV of France seized Edward's French holdings, Isabella sailed to France to raise an army against her husband. There she became involved with Roger Mortimer, Earl of March. Together the lovers raised an army and invaded England, forcing Edward to abdicate in favor of his eldest son, Edward III. The young king was only 14, and Isabella and Mortimer ruled as regents. They plotted to kill the deposed king (some believe they did cause his death), but Edward III remembered their disloyalty, and had Mortimer executed for treason. His mother was forced to retire to Castle Rising in Norfolk, where she died. Bio by: Kristen Conrad

; Per Med Lands:
     "EDWARD "of Caernarvon", son of EDWARD I King of England & his first wife Infanta doña Leonor de Castilla (Caernarvon Castle 25 Apr 1284-murdered Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire 21 Sep 1327, bur Gloucester Cathedral). The Continuator of Florence of Worcester records the birth "die S Marci Evangelistæ" 25 Apr [1284] at Caernarvon of "domini regi Angliæ filius…Eadwardus"[826]. He succeeded his mother in 1290 as Comte de Ponthieu et de Montreuil. Created Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester 7 Feb 1301. Created Duke of Aquitaine in May 1306. He succeeded his father in 1307 as EDWARD II King of England. Crowned in Westminster Abbey 24/25 Feb 1308. The barons, weakened by the strong rule of Edward's father, took the opportunity to regain their position under the new king of weaker character. A crisis was triggered immediately after his accession due to the unpopularity of his favourite Piers Gaveston. Edward was obliged to accept a committee of Lords Ordainers to control his excesses, remove his own advisers and impose reforms. Gaveston was captured, tried and beheaded near Warwick 19 Jun 1312. Edward's first cousin Thomas Earl of Lancaster led the discontented barons, but lacked the ability to push through the reforms which were needed. Political confusion increased, but the various baronial factions found common cause in opposition to the king's new favourite Hugh Despenser the younger. The Earl of Lancaster, by now in open rebellion, was captured and beheaded at his castle in Pontefract. The other rebellious barons were defeated at Boroughbridge in 1322. But Edward lacked the leadership to push his advantage. Matters came to a head with the queen's affair with Roger Mortimer of Wigmore. The couple attracted baronial support to overthrow the king, who fled to Wales Oct 1326. His son Edward was appointed "Keeper of the Realm" by an extraordinary council at Bristol 26 Oct 1326. He was deposed 20 Jan 1327 by a Parliament convened without his authority, and he formally abdicated in favour of his son 25 Jan 1327. The Chronicle of Geoffrey le Baker of Swinbrook records in graphic detail the king´s privations while imprisoned and the brutality of his murder[827].
     "Betrothed (Papal dispensation 16 Nov 1289, Birgham Jul 1290) to MARGARET Queen of Scotland "the Maid of Norway", daughter of ERIK II King of Norway & his wife Margaret of Scotland (Tönsberg before 9 Apr 1283-on board ship off Orkney [26 Sep] 1290, bur Bergen, Christ's Church). The dispensation for the marriage of “Edwardo nato...Edvardi regis Angliæ” and “Margareta nata...Erici Norwegiæ regis, neptis...regis Scotiæ”, dated 16 Nov 1289, records the 3o consanguinity between the parties[828]. The Chronicle of John of Fordun (Continuator - Annals) records the betrothal between "Edward I king of England…Edward his son and heir" and "Margaret the daughter of the king of Norway…the true heiress of Scotland" in 1290[829]. This betrothal was agreed under the Treaty of Birgham in Jul 1290 which confirmed that Scotland would retain its independence after the marriage took place[830]. The Continuator of Florence of Worcester confirms the betrothal of "Margareta filia Irici regis Norwegiæ…" and "Eadwardo regis Eadwardi filio" when recording her death[831].
     "Betrothed (31 Jul 1291) to BLANCHE de France, daughter of PHILIPPE III "le Hardi" King of France & his second wife Marie de Brabant ([1278/85]-Vienna 14 Mar 1306, bur Vienna, Minoritenkirche).
     "Betrothed (contract 7 Jan 1297) to PHILIPPINE de Flandre, daughter of GUY Count of Flanders & his second wife Isabelle de Luxembourg Ctss of Namur (-Paris 1304). The Annals of Worcester record the betrothal of “Edwardum filium regis” and “filiam comitis Flandriæ” as part of the treaty agreed between England and Flanders “die Purificationis beatæ Mariæ” (2 Feb) in 1296[832]. The Chronique Normande names "Philippe" as the daughter of "conte en Flandres…Guy de Dampierre" by his second wife "fille au conte de Luxembourg", adding that she was betrothed to "le roy d´Angleterre…Edouart son filz"[833]. The marriage contract between “Edward...Edward nostre...fiuz” and “Guy conte de Flandres et marchis de Namur...Phelippe fille au dit conte” is dated 7 Jan 1296 (O.S.)[834]. Philippe IV King of France obliged her father to abandon the betrothal after summoning him to Paris and imprisoning him for four months with two of his sons. Philippine was sent to Paris for her education[835].
     "m (contract 12 May 1299, betrothed 20 May 1303, Boulogne-sur-Mer 22 Jan 1308) ISABELLE de France, daughter of PHILIPPE IV "le Bel" King of France & his wife doña Juana I Queen of Navarre (Paris [1291/92]-Castle Rising, Norfolk or Hertford Castle 21 Nov 1358, bur Greyfriars Church, Newgate, London). Père Anselme states that Isabelle was born in 1292 but does not cite the primary source on which he bases this date[836]. The chronology of the births of Philippe IV’s children is tight and would fit better if Isabelle was born in 1291. Edward I King of England appointed “Amadeum comitem Sabaudiæ consanguineum nostrum” as proxy for the marriages between “nos et Margaretam sororem...regis Franciæ...ac inter Edwardum filium nostrum et Isabellam...regis Franciæ filiam” by charter dated 12 May 1299[837]. The betrothal contract between “Ed. filz du roi d´Angleterre” and “Isabel fille du roi de France” is dated 20 May 1303[838]. The Annales Londonienses record the marriage "apud Boloniam…in festo Conversionis Sancti Pauli" in 1308 of "rex Edwardus" and "Isabellam filiam regis Franciæ Philippi"[839]. The Continuatio of the Chronicle of Guillaume de Nangis records the marriage in Jan 1308 "apud Boloniam supra mare" of "Eduardus Angliæ rex" and "filiam unicam regis Franciæ Philippi...Isabellam"[840]. The Chronicle of Geoffrey le Baker of Swinbrook records the marriage “apud Boloniam...V Kal Feb” of “rex Edwardus” and “Isabellam filiam...regis Francie”[841]. She was crowned Queen of England with her husband [23/25] Feb 1308. The Chronicle of Geoffrey le Baker of Swinbrook records the return of the couple to England 5 Feb and their coronation “VII Kal Mar...apud Westmonasterium”[842]. Her relationship with her husband steadily deteriorated over the years, culminating in her flight to France to seek the protection of her brother Philippe V King of France. In 1325, Roger [V] de Mortimer Lord Mortimer became her lover, and together they plotted her husband's overthrow. She was declared head of the Council of Regency by Parliament on the deposition of her husband. However, her rule was unpopular. She signed an unfavourable treaty with France and recognised Robert Bruce as king of Scotland for the first time. In addition, Mortimer alienated the barons with his territorial ambitions. Her son seized power, had Mortimer arrested after a Great Council meeting at Nottingham 19 Oct 1330 and condemned him to death. Isabelle thereafter lived in retirement. Froissart records that Isabelle went to "Ostrevant en Haynau en un chastel…Buignicourt dont messires Nicoles d´Aubrecicourt estoit sires"[843]. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death “die Sancti Rufi martyris” of “domina mater regis Edwardi domina Ysabella” and her burial “in ecclesia Fratrum Minorum Londoniis”, dated to 1357 from the context[844].

; Per Genealogics:
     “Isabelle de France was born in 1292, the daughter of Philippe IV 'le Bel', king of France, and Jeanne I, queen of Navarre, comtesse de Champagne. Three of her brothers would be kings of France. Isabelle, the infamous 'She-Wolf of France', was about thirteen years old when she married the king of England, Edward II. Probably the most vilified of the English queens, and the only medieval queen known to have been an adulteress, Isabelle led the revolution that eventually ended with the removal of her husband.
     “Isabelle's dowry was enormous, but many of her father's presents to her husband went straight to Piers Gaveston, her husband's favourite. Edward II's preference for Gaveston was so obvious that it caused disharmony between Edward and Isabelle throughout their lives. Nevertheless, four children were born over a nine-year period, of whom a son Edward and daughter Eleanor would have progeny.
     “When Piers Gaveston was murdered in 1312 his place was soon taken by Hugh le Despenser, who did not come alone as he was strongly supported by his father, the earl of Winchester.
     “The last years of Isabelle's father King Philippe IV of France were overshadowed by the conduct of his three daughters-in-law. All three had supposedly started affaires, of which their husbands may have remained ignorant had not Isabelle revealed the behaviour of her sisters-in-law. Two of their lovers, brothers Philippe and Gautier d'Aulnay, confessed under torture and were killed hideously, while all three princesses were imprisoned and two admitted guilt. Marguerite, wife of the future King Louis X, had her marriage annulled and was imprisoned in Château Gaillard where she was virtually starved to death. Blanche, wife of the future King Charles IV, also had her marriage annulled and ended her life as a nun. Only Jeanne, wife of the future King Philippe V, who had protested her innocence, was believed by her husband and taken back by him.
     “The Tower of London housed a state prisoner, Roger Mortimer, who was under sentence of death. Queen Isabelle fell in love with him and had his sentence changed to life imprisonment. Then she assisted his escape to France in August 1323. A year later the Despensers caused a rift between Isabelle and Edward II, but Edward still allowed her to go to France with their eldest son.
     “In France Isabelle was joined by Roger Mortimer. However, when her brother King Charles IV was made aware of her behaviour, he ordered her out of the country. Isabelle and Roger Mortimer then left for the court of Willem III 'the Good', Graaf van Holland and Hainault, his consort Jeanne de Valois, whose daughter Philippa would be married to Isabelle's son Edward III in 1328.
     “Gathering an army, Isabelle and Mortimer landed at Harwich on 25 September 1326 and were joined by the barons. In January 1327 Edward II was deposed. On 25 January 1327 Edward III, aged only fourteen, was proclaimed king and crowned on 2 February 1327 in Westminster Abbey. It is widely believed that in September 1327 Edward II was hideously murdered, though there is an element of doubt about this.
     “Edward III's resentment was contained for only a few years. Isabelle lived openly with Roger Mortimer until in 1330 he was taken prisoner and removed to Tyburn. There he was hanged on 23 November 1330, having the dubious honour of being the first person to be executed there. Edward III then forced his mother to retire to Hertford Castle, where he would occasionally visit her. Here she died in August 1358, aged about sixty-six.”.2

She was declared head of the Council of Regency by Parliament on the deposition of her husband. However, her rule was unpopular. She signed an unfavourable treaty with France and recognised Robert Bruce as king of Scotland for the first time. In addition, Mortimer alienated the barons with his territorial ambitions. Her son seized power, had Mortimer arrested after a Great Council meeting at Nottingham 19 Oct 1330 and condemned him to death. Isabelle thereafter lived in retirement. Froissart records that Isabelle went to "Ostrevant en Haynau en un chastel…Buignicourt dont messires Nicoles d´Aubrecicourt estoit sires"[794]. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death “die Sancti Rufi martyris” of “domina mater regis Edwardi domina Ysabella” and her burial “in ecclesia Fratrum Minorum Londoniis”, dated to 1357 from the context[795].

; Per Gregg database: "John Holland, son of Thomas Holland and Joan 'The Fair Maid of Kent'; half-brother of Richard II, King of England; Knight of the Garter (1381); 12th Earl of Huntingdon (1388-1400); Chamberlian of England (1389); 1st Duke of Exeter (139701399). John Holland m. Elizabeth, daughter of John of Gaunt, and was part of the royal entourage until 1384, when he fell from favor for his violent murder of Sir Ralph Stafford. He distinguished himself as a soldier under John of Gaunt in Spain in 1386. Richard II made him Duke of Exeter in return for his support against the lords appellant, Thomas of Woodstock, 1st Duke of Gloucester, and Richard Fitzalan, 9th Earl of Arundel. In 1399 he accompanied King Richard to Ireland. In the first parliament of Henry IV's reign (1399), John lost his dukedom and was demoted to Earl of Huntington. He joined a conspiracy to restore Richard II, but was captured at Pleshey and beheaded there on 15 January 1400, at the spot where three years earlier Richard had arrested Gloucester. He was captured at Pleshy for his part in the conspiracy against Henry IV, where he fell into the hands of the Countess of Hereford, the mother of the Bohun sisters and therefore, mother-in-law of the now King Henry. This fate was unfortunate. The Countess had Holland beheaded without trial. His head was raised on the end of a pike over Pleshy Castle and remained until the king, in deference to the feelings of his sister, had it sent to her for burial with the body."18

; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     21 Feb 1363, Burford, Shropshire Unitary Authority, Shropshire, England
     DEATH     24 Nov 1425 (aged 62), England
     Elizabeth was the daughter and third child of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and Blanche Plantagenet of Lancaster, Countess of Derby. She was born in January or February, and was raised in her father's royal household under Katherine Swynford. Elizabeth was considered to be very independent and spirited. She was vested as a Lady of the Garter in 1378.
     Her first husband was John de Hastings, the 3rd Earl of Pembroke, married 24 June 1380 at Kenilworth Castle, Warwickshire, England. She was seventeen years old and her husband eight. The marriage was annulled as she became pregnant by the infamous seducer, John de Holand, in 1386.
     Elizabeth and John de Holand were married the same year on 24 June 1386 in Plymouth, Devon. The marriage produced six children:
* Constance Holland 1387–1437 wife of Thomas Mowbray, 4th Earl of Norfolk and Sir John Grey, had children
* Richard Holland c 1389 – 3 September 1400, no children
* Alice Holland c 1392 – c 1406, wife of Richard de Vere, 11th Earl of Oxford, no children
* John Holland, 2nd Duke of Exeter 1395–1447, had children
* Sir Edward Holland 1399–1413, no children,
     Sir John Holland was executed for his part in the Epiphany Rising in 1400.
     Thirdly, Elizabeth married Sir John Cornwall, 1st Baron Fanhope and Milbroke in 1400. This marriage caused a scandal as Sir John failed to ask her brother for permission to marry Elizabeth, which resulted in his being arrested. However the marriage is said to have been a happy and loving one and they went on to have two children, Constance who married John d'Arundel, and Sir John, who was killed in the 100 Year War.
     Elizabeth died in 1426 and was buried at Burford Church, Burford, Shropshire.
     Frederick Lewis Weis lists her death location as Ampthill, Bedfordshire.

     "Elizabeth of Lancaster was born about 21 February 1363, daughter of John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster, and his first wife Blanche of Lancaster.
     "She was seventeen when she married the seven-year-old John Hastings, 3rd Earl of Pembroke. However, having married John while he was still an immature boy, she deserted him and went to Spain with her father, after which he divorced her. Meanwhile John de Holand had fallen passionately in love with her and, after constant solicitations, seduced her; as she had become pregnant, they were married hurriedly before de Holand sailed with her father for Spain. John de Holand, afterwards Duke of Exeter, was beheaded and, as his widow, Elizabeth married Sir John Cornwall. Elizabeth of Lancaster died on 24 November 1425."11

He was born after 1350 and was half-brother of King Richard II.

He was created Earl of Huntingdon on 2 June 1388, and Duke of Exeter on 29 Sep. 1397. He joined in the plot to seize King Henry IV, but took no active part. JOHN DE HOLAND died 9 or 10 Jan. 1399/1400, being beheaded at Pleshey Castle, Essex, for treason against his brother-in-law, King Henry IV, and was buried in Collegiate Church at Pleshey (M.I.)

     ORIGINAL NAME     John Plantagenet
     BIRTH     6 Mar 1340, Ghent, Arrondissement Gent, East Flanders (Oost-Vlaanderen), Belgium
     DEATH     3 Feb 1399 (aged 58), Leicester, Leicester Unitary Authority, Leicestershire, England
     English Royalty. 1st Duke of Lancaster. Born the fourth son of Edward III Plantagenet and Queen Philippa of Hainault, at Ghent (or Gaunt) in Flanders. He was made Earl of Richmond in September 1342. He married Blanche, Countess of Derby in May 1359, with whom he had seven children, including the future Henry IV. After his marriage, he was styled as Earl of Derby and of Leicester. He was appointed Knight, Order of the Garter (K.G.) in April 1361. He gained the title of Duke of Lancaster in November 1362 . After the death of his wife in 1369, the ambitious Duke married Costanza, the daughter of Pedro I, King of Léon and Castilla in 1372, with whom he had two children. After his marriage, he was styled as King John of Léon and Castilla. He took Katherine Swynford as his mistress about the same time, and with her had four children, who were given the surname Beaufort. He campaigned with his elder brother, Edward of Woodstock, and took part in the conflicts of the Hundred Years War. After the death of his brother in 1376, he was in the ascendancy at court, however, favor coincided with widespread resentment of his influence among the English population. When his father died in 1377, and was succeeded by Edward's 10 year old son, John became the protector of the young king and effectively ruled England during his minority. His decisions on taxation however, culminated in the Peasants' Revolt in 1381. In 1386, he left England in an unsuccessful attempt to claim the Castilian throne. Upon his return to England in 1389, he served as mediator between the king and the Lords Appellant who had been on the brink of violence. In March 1390, Richard II invested John as Duke of Aquitaine. Costanza died at Leicester Castle in March 1394, and John married his mistress, Katherine, in 1396 at Lincoln Cathedral. The couple's children were legitimized by Richard II and the Church, but barred from inheriting the throne. He died at Leicester Castle three years later at the age of fifty-eight, he was buried beside his first wife in the choir of St Paul's Cathedral. Bio by: Iola

;
Per Genealogics:
     "John was born in March 1340, the son of Edward III, king of England, and Philippa of Holland and Hainault. He was born in Ghent in Flanders, from which his name John of Gaunt derives. Aged nineteen, he married his cousin Blanche, heiress of Lancaster, daughter of Henry, duke of Lancaster, and Isabel de Beaumont. They had seven children of whom a son Henry (the future Henry IV, king of England) and two daughters would have progeny. When her father died in 1362, John became duke of Lancaster and the greatest landholder in England.
     "John joined his brother Edward, prince of Wales (the 'Black Prince'), on his Spanish campaign to reinstate Pedro III 'the Cruel', king of Castile, who had been deposed by his half-brother Enrique de Trastámara. After Blanche died in 1369, John married Constance, daughter of Pedro 'the Cruel', and in 1372 he claimed the Castilian crown in his wife's right, as Enrique de Trastámara had murdered her father in 1369.
     "In the early 1370s he campaigned against the French around La Rochelle and Bordeaux, returning to England in 1375. There he supported the court faction led by Alice Perrers, his father's mistress. Widespread opposition to Alice led to the Good Parliament of 1376 that ousted her and her followers, but John was able to reverse most of its decrees in 1377.
     "In an effort to undermine his clerical opponents, he supported John Wycliffe's anti-clerical theology and defended Wycliffe during his trial in 1377. During the Peasants' Revolt of 1381, the rebels sacked and burned the Savoy Palace, his London home.
     "In 1386 John left England to try to win the Castilian throne, but he was unsuccessful. In 1388 he relinquished his claims to his daughter Catherine, who was then married to the future Enrique III of Castile.
     "On his return to England in 1389, he acted as peacemaker between his nephew King Richard II and the lords appellant. However his appointment as duke of Aquitaine in 1390 revived the barons' hostility. In 1394 his second wife Constance died, and in 1396 he married his longstanding mistress Catherine Swynford. In his last years his relationship with the king became increasingly strained, and in 1398 Richard II exiled John's son Henry Bolingbroke (later Henry IV). John died on 3 February 1399 in Leicester Castle."

     "BLANCHE OF LANCASTER, younger daughter and co-heiress, was born on 25 Mar. 1345, and received Pontefract, Co. Lancaster. She was married at Reading on 13 May 1359 to her cousin JOHN OF LANCASTER [of Gaunt], K.G., fourth but third surviving son of King Edward III, K.G. He was born at St. Bavon's Abbey, Ghent in Flanders in March 1340 [see PLANTAGENET 12 for his ancestry]. He was created Earl of Richmond on 20 Sep. 1342. He was created Duke of Lancaster on 13 Nov. 1362 in consequence of the marriage, and was ancestor of the Lancastrian Kings of England. BLANCHE OF LANCASTER died at Bolingbroke Castle, co. Lincoln, aged twenty-four, on 12 Sep. 1368, and was buried in St. Paul's Cathedral. Chaucer's Boke of the Duchesse is the author's tribute to her memory. John was married for the second time at Roquefort near Bordeaux in September 1371 to CONSTANCE DE CASTILLE, elder surviving daughter and Co-heiress of Pedro I (the Cruel), Rey de Castilla, by his first wife Maria, daughter of Juan Garcías de Padilla, Lord of Villagera. She was born at Castro Kerez in 1354. In her right John assumed in September 1371 the title of King of Castille and Leon. From 1376 until his death his diplomatic and military services in France and Guienne, and in Scotland, and his Spanish expedition (1386-88) formed interludes in the factious life of politics in which, as eldest uncle of King Richard II and his chief subject, he was involved. He was created Duke of Aquitaine on 2 Mar. 1390. CONSTANCE DE CASTILLE died at Leicester on 24 Mar. 1394, and was buried in the Newark there. John was married for the third time on 13 Jan. 1396 to KATHERINE DE ROËT [see BEAUFORT 11 for their descendants]. JOHN OF LANCASTER [of Gaunt], DUKE OF LANCASTER, died testate (P.C.C., 13 Beaufort) at Leicester Castle aged fifty-nine on 3 Feb. 1398/9, and was buried in St. Paul's with his first wife. His widow died at Lincoln 10 May 1403, and was buried at Lincoln Cathedral.

Perhaps it is to Shakespeare that he owes both name and lasting fame"), 416 footnote b ('The Duke was a man of culture, reading with Chaucer (whom he met first at Christmas 1357) the Latin poets as well as the fashionable French romances. Chaucer ... tells us that in his youth the Duke himself made verses. He came into contact several times with Wyclif, and was in favour of the translation of the Bible into English, but his support of anti-papal views must have been either temporary or merely political, for indulgences were sold in aid of his Spanish expeditions, 1386 ...

     "JOHN OF LANCASTER [of Gaunt], Duke of Lancaster, fourth son, was married for the third time [see LANCASTER 11 for earlier marriages and descendants by those marriages] at Lincoln Cathedral on 13 Jan. 1395/6 to KATHERINE DE ROET, widow, with a son Thomas [see DARCY 10], of Hugh de Swynford, Knt., of Colby and Kettlethorpe, co. Lincoln (died 13 Nov. 1371), and younger daughter and coheiress of Pain de Roet, Knt., Guienne King of Arms, a Hainaulter, and one of the knights of Queen Philippe's household. She was born, probably in Hainaut, about 1350 and had formerly been the governess to his daughters, and then his mistress, and by her he had children, born before marriage, with eldest son, John, born before the death of her husband, Hugh Swynford. The marriage was ratified and confirmed during the Great Schism by the Roman pope, Boniface IX. Their three sons were legitimised, with the assent of Parliament, on 9 Feb. 1396/7, the patent confirmed by King Henry IV on 10 Feb. 1406/7, but with a saving clause barring them from succession to the throne. Their children were given the name Beaufort from their father's (lost) castle in Champagne which had devolved on him through his first wife, Blanche of Lancaster, a descendant of Blanche d'Artois who had purchased the lordship of Beaufort in 1270.

; Per Med Lands:
     "JOHN "of Gaunt", son of EDWARD III King of England & his wife Philippa de Hainaut (St Bavon’s Abbey, Ghent [Feb/Mar] 1340-[Leicester Castle or Ely Place, Holborn, London] 3/4 Feb 1399, bur Old St Paul’s Cathedral, London). The Chronicon Angliæ records the birth “apud Gandavum” of “regi Edwardo filius...Johannes”, dated to 1340 from the context[1027]. Created Earl of Richmond 20 Sep 1342, surrendered 5 Jun 1372. Seigneur de Beaufort et de Nogent 1361, by right of his first wife. Summoned to Parliament as Earl of Lancaster and Richmond 14 Aug 1361. Created Duke of Lancaster 13 Nov 1362. "Jehans fils au...roy d´Engleterre duc de Lanquastre, conte de Richemont, de Derby, de Nicol et de Leicestre, seigneur de Beauffort, sénéchal d´Engleterre" granted protection to Chapelle-aux-Planches by charter dated 28 Oct 1364[1028]. Created Seigneur de Bergerac et de Roche-sur-Yonne 8 Oct 1370. After his second marriage, he claimed the throne of Castile in right of his wife, assuming the title King of Castile and Leon before 6 Oct 1372. He allied himself with Fernando I King of Portugal in July 1380 to pursue this claim, betrothing one of his nephews to Fernando's daughter, and agreed to invade Castile jointly. He invaded Castile in July 1386 to enforce his claim, quickly overrunning Galicia. He pushed further into Castile in March 1387, but was eventually obliged to withdraw and sign the Treaty of Bayonne in July 1388 (under which the marriage of Juan's older son to John of Gaunt's daughter was agreed). Created Duke of Aquitaine 2 Mar 1390 by the English Parliament. The will of "John son of the King of England, Duke of Lancaster", dated 3 Feb 1397, chose burial “in the cathedral church of St Paul, of London...beside my...late wife Blanch”, bequeathed property to “Dame Katherine del Staple...my...wife Katherine...my...brother the Duke of York...my...son Henry Duke of Hereford, Earl of Derby...my...daughter Philippa Queen of Portugal...my...daughter Katherine Queen of Castile and Leon...my...daughter Elizabeth Duchess of Exeter...my...son John Beaufort Marquis of Dorset...my...son the Bishop of Lincoln...my...son Thomas Beaufort...my...daughter their sister Countess of Westmoreland and Lady of Nevil...my...son John brother to...Henry...Mons. Thomas Swyneford...Mons Walter Blount...”[1029]. The Chronicle of Adam de Usk records the death “in crastino Sancti Blasii” of “dux Lancastrie” and his burial “in ecclesia Sancti Pauli Londonie”, dated to [1398/99] from the context[1030].
     "m firstly (Reading Abbey 19 May 1359) BLANCHE of Lancaster, daughter of HENRY Duke of Lancaster & his wife Isabel de Beaumont (25 Mar 1345-Bolingbroke Castle, Lincolnshire of the Black death 12 Sep 1369, bur Old St Paul’s Cathedral, London). The Chronicon Angliæ records the marriage “XIV Kal Jun...apud Radinggum” of “dominus Johannes de Gaunt filius regis E[dwardi] comes Rychemund” and “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastriæ”, dated to 1359 from the context[1031]. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “Johannes Gaunt Dux Lancastrie et quartus filius Edward III” married firstly “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastrie”[1032]. Co-heir of her father, she inherited the earldom of Lancaster, Pontefract castle as well as land in Lancashire and Cheshire. She succeeded her sister to the other half of her father's property, including the earldom of Leicester, in 1362. She is the subject of Chaucer's Boke of the Duchesse. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death of “Blanchia ducissa Lancastriæ” and her burial “in ecclesia Sancti Pauli Londoniarum”, dated to 1369 from the context[1033]. She died of bubonic plague.
     "m secondly (Roquefort, Guyenne 21 Sep 1371) Infanta doña CONSTANZA de Castilla, [illegitimate] daughter of PEDRO I “el Cruel” King of Castile & his mistress [first wife] doña María de Padilla (Castrojerez [Jun/Jul] 1354-Leicester Castile 24 Mar 1394, bur Newark Abbey, Leicester). Ayala´s Crónica de Pedro I records that the king heard news in Jul 1354 of the birth of “una fija de Doña Maria de Padilla...Doña Constanza” in “la villa de Castro Xeriz”, adding that she later married “el Duque de Alencastre” and that their daughter “la Reyna Doña Catalina...es agora muger del Rey Don Enrique”[1034]. She succeeded her father 13 Mar 1369 as de iure Queen of Castile and Leon. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “Johannes Gaunt Dux Lancastrie et quartus filius Edward III” married secondly “Constanciam filiam regis Hispaniarum”[1035].
     "m thirdly (Lincoln Cathedral [14/31] Jan 1396) KATHARINE Swynford, widow of HUGH Swynford of Coleby and Kettlethorpe, Lincolnshire, daughter of PAYN de Roët[1036] & his wife --- ([1350]-Lincoln 10 May 1403, bur Lincoln Cathedral). She had been governess to John of Gaunt's daughters by his first wife, and became his mistress [1371/72]. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “post mortem Constancie secunde uxoris”, “Johannes Gaunt” married “dominam Katerinam de Swynfurth” by whom “in diebus domine Blanchie prime uxoris sue” he had “Johannem Bowfurth comitem Somersissie, Johannam Bowfurth comitissam Westmorelandie, Henricum Bowfurth presbiterum cardinalem et episcopum Wyntonyensem...Thomam Bowforth ducem Exoniensem vel Exeter” who were legitimated by the Pope and called “Bowfurthes aut Faerborne”[1037]. The register of John of Gaunt records the grant of “the wardship of the lands and heir to Sire Robert Deyncourt” to “Katharine Swynford for her and for her daughter Blanche” [presumably born from Katharine´s first marriage], dated Jan 1374[1038]. King Edward III confirmed the donation made by “filii nostri Johannis regis Castellæ et Legionis ducis Lancastriæ” of “in maneriis de Gryngeley et Wheteley” to “Katerina de Swynford” by charter dated 4 Mar 1377[1039]. Her children by John of Gaunt were legitimated 1 Sep 1396 by Pope Boniface IX and 9 Feb 1397 by charter of King Richard II, but excluded from the succession by the latter charter. The will of "John son of the King of England, Duke of Lancaster", dated 3 Feb 1397, chose burial “in the cathedral church of St Paul, of London...beside my...late wife Blanch”, bequeathed property to “Dame Katherine del Staple...my...wife Katherine...my...brother the Duke of York...my...son Henry Duke of Hereford, Earl of Derby...my...daughter Philippa Queen of Portugal...my...daughter Katherine Queen of Castile and Leon...my...daughter Elizabeth Duchess of Exeter...my...son John Beaufort Marquis of Dorset...my...son the Bishop of Lincoln...my...son Thomas Beaufort...my...daughter their sister Countess of Westmoreland and Lady of Nevil...my...son John brother to...Henry...Mons. Thomas Swyneford...Mons Walter Blount...”[1040].
     "Mistress (1): (before 1359?) MARIE de Saint-Hilaire, daughter of --- (-after 7 Apr 1399). Froissart records “mareschal messire Thomas Moreaulx” married to “le duc Jehan de Lancastre...une de ses filles” who was “bastarde” born to “demoiselle Marie de Saint.Hyllaire, de Hainaut”[1041]. King Edward III granted a pension to Marie de Saint-Hilaire in 1360[1042]. The Patent Rolls record that this pension was exchanged 19 Feb 1390 for “an annuity...charged on the issues of the counties of Cambridge and Huntingdon”[1043]. The Patent Rolls record 7 Apr 1399 that Marie de Saint-Hilaire was in receipt of a pension from the duke of Lancaster “for the good and agreeable service she has rendered for a long time to our honoured lady and mother Philippe late Queen of England”[1044]."

; Per Genealogics:
     “Blanche was born on 25 March 1345, the youngest daughter of Henry, duke of Lancaster, and Isabel de Beaumont. Both she and her elder sister Maud were born at Bolingbroke Castle in Old Bolingbroke, Lincolnshire.
     “On 19 May 1359, at Reading Abbey in Berkshire, Blanche was married to her second cousin once removed John of Gaunt, the third son of Edward III, king of England, and Philippa of Holland and Hainault. The title Duke of Lancaster became extinct upon her father's death without male heirs in 1361. However, through his marriage to Blanche, John of Gaunt became Earl of Lancaster, Earl of Derby, Earl of Lincoln and Earl of Leicester (although John of Gaunt would not receive all of these titles until the death without issue of Blanche's older sister Maud in 1362). The duchy of Lancaster (at its second creation) would later be bestowed on John of Gaunt. The influence associated with the titles would lead him to become Lord High Steward of England. The marriage was said to have been happy. Blanche has been described as very beautiful with pale-blonde hair, blue eyes and a serene, calm demeanour. She bore John of Gaunt seven children of whom three, Henry (the future King Henry IV), Philippa and Elizabeth, survived infancy and would have progeny.
     “In 1369 bubonic plague struck England for the third time, and among the dead was Blanche of Lancaster. She was living in Bolingbroke Castle at the time, and died on 12 September that year. Her husband was at sea at the time of her death. Her funeral at St. Paul's Cathedral in London was preceded with a magnificent cortege attended by most of the nobility and clergy. John of Gaunt held annual commemorations of her death for some years thereafter. For one of these, Geoffrey Chaucer, then a young squire and mostly unknown writer of court poetry, was commissioned to write what became _The Book of the Duchess,_ in her honour. The beautiful dream-vision/elegy includes many puns playing on the names of both Blanche ('good faire White she het') and her husband ('A _long castel_ with walles white, Be _Seynt Johan,_ on a _ryche hil'_). Though Chaucer's intentions can never be defined with absolute certainty, many believe that at least one of the book's aims was an attempt to make John of Gaunt see that his grief for his late wife had become excessive and to subtly prod him to try and overcome it. He married his second wife Constance, (titular) queen of Castile and León, in 1371.
     “In 1374, five years after Blanche's death, John of Gaunt ordered effigies made of himself and his wife. Twenty-five years later, John of Gaunt was laid to rest next to Blanche; the two are buried at an unknown location in St. Paul's Cathedral.”.4

; Per Med Lands:
     "BLANCHE of Lancaster (25 Mar 1345-Bolingbroke Castle, Lincolnshire 12 Sep 1369, bur Old St Paul’s Cathedral, London). The Chronicon Angliæ records the marriage “XIV Kal Jun...apud Radinggum” of “dominus Johannes de Gaunt filius regis E[dwardi] comes Rychemund” and “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastriæ”, dated to 1359 from the context[1016]. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “Johannes Gaunt Dux Lancastrie et quartus filius Edward III” married firstly “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastrie”[1017]. Co-heir of her father, she inherited the earldom of Lancaster, Pontefract castle as well as land in Lancashire and Cheshire. She succeeded her sister to the other half of her father's property, including the earldom of Leicester, in 1362. She is the subject of Chaucer's Boke of the Duchesse. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death of “Blanchia ducissa Lancastriæ” and her burial “in ecclesia Sancti Pauli Londoniarum”, dated to 1369 from the context[1018]. She died of bubonic plague.

Co-heir of her father, she inherited the earldom of Lancaster, Pontefract castle as well as land in Lancashire and Cheshire. She succeeded her sister to the other half of her father's property, including the earldom of Leicester, in 1362. She is the subject of Chaucer's Boke of the Duchesse. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death of “Blanchia ducissa Lancastriæ” and her burial “in ecclesia Sancti Pauli Londoniarum”, dated to 1369 from the context[1033]. She died of bubonic plague.

Ayala´s Crónica de Pedro I records that the king heard news in Jul 1354 of the birth of “una fija de Doña Maria de Padilla...Doña Constanza” in “la villa de Castro Xeriz”, adding that she later married “el Duque de Alencastre” and that their daughter “la Reyna Doña Catalina...es agora muger del Rey Don Enrique”[1034]. She succeeded her father 13 Mar 1369 as de iure Queen of Castile and Leon.

She had been governess to John of Gaunt's daughters by his first wife, and became his mistress [1371/72].

The register of John of Gaunt records the grant of “the wardship of the lands and heir to Sire Robert Deyncourt” to “Katharine Swynford for her and for her daughter Blanche” [presumably born from Katharine´s first marriage], dated Jan 1374[1038]. King Edward III confirmed the donation made by “filii nostri Johannis regis Castellæ et Legionis ducis Lancastriæ” of “in maneriis de Gryngeley et Wheteley” to “Katerina de Swynford” by charter dated 4 Mar 1377[1039]. Her children by John of Gaunt were legitimated 1 Sep 1396 by Pope Boniface IX and 9 Feb 1397 by charter of King Richard II, but excluded from the succession by the latter charter.

King Edward III granted a pension to Marie de Saint-Hilaire in 1360[1042]. The Patent Rolls record that this pension was exchanged 19 Feb 1390 for “an annuity...charged on the issues of the counties of Cambridge and Huntingdon”[1043]. The Patent Rolls record 7 Apr 1399 that Marie de Saint-Hilaire was in receipt of a pension from the duke of Lancaster “for the good and agreeable service she has rendered for a long time to our honoured lady and mother Philippe late Queen of England”[1044]."

     “Constance was born in Castro Kerez in 1354, the daughter of Pedro 'the Cruel', king of Castile and León, by his long term mistress, Maria de Padilla, whom he had secretly married but had been forced to repudiate. Constance was claimant to the Castilian throne after the death of her father. On 21 September 1371 at Roquefort near Bordeaux, Guienne, she became the second wife of John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster, third son of Edward III, king of England, and Philippa of Holland and Hainault. Her younger sister Isabel married Edmund of Langley, 1st duke of York, the fourth son of King Edward III and Queen Philippa.
     “The marriage to Constance was the way chosen by John of Gaunt to obtain a kingdom of his own (he had also pursued Scotland), as his nephew Richard II and the descendants of his brother Lionel of Antwerp, duke of Clarence, stood between him and the crown of England. John of Gaunt claimed the title of King of Castile jure uxoris, and insisted that English nobles address him as 'my lord of Spain', but was unsuccessful in his attempts to obtain the crown. Their daughter Catherine would have progeny, marrying Enrique III 'the Infirm', king of Castile and León of the Trastámara line, thereby uniting these two rival claims.
     “Constance died at Leicester Castle on 24 March 1394, and was buried at Newark Abbey, Leicester.”.8

     English Nobility Figure. She was married to a knight, Hugh Swynford. After his death, Katherine was the mistress and true love of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and second son of King Edward III. He married Constance of Castile for purely political and dynastic reasons. He married Katherine after Constance died to legitimize their relationship and provide for their children. Although her children with John of Gaunt were born before they were married, the children were legitimized by King Richard The King declared the Beauforts to be legitimate under English Law, but not eligible to the royal succession (though this did not, ultimately, prevent Katherine's great-great grandson from being crowned as Henry VII). Katherine's children with John included: á John Beaufort (1372 to 1409) had two sons Henry, Earl of Somerset and John, Duke of Somerset who fathered Margaret Beaufort (mother of Henry VII). á Joan Beaufort (1397 to 1440) had as her second husband, Ralph Neville of Derby, 1st Earl of Westmoreland. Joan's daughter, Cicely, married Richard, Duke of York and was mother to Edward IV and Richard III. John and Katherine between them started the Tudor and Yorkist Royal Houses directly and most of the European Royal Houses can trace their origins back to them through intermarriage. They had fulfilled an ancient prophecy of Merlin: "thou shalt get kings though thou be none!" His (now obliterated) epitaph in the original St. Paul's, described her as " an extremely beautiful woman". Little is known of her apart from when her life touched John's. The less charitable chroniclers at Saint Albans and Saint Mary's Abbey, York describes her as "a witch and a whore", and "she-devil and enchantress". After John's death, Katherine returned and Lincoln, and died in May 1403. She was buried by the high altar in the cathedral. Her daughter, Joan was also buried there and her tomb, can be found if facing to the right of the altar. All the decoration and brasses of them were removed by the soldiers of Cromwell, thus her gravesite give no indication of her importance in English History. Bio by: K Freeman

     "m firstly (Reading Abbey 19 May 1359) BLANCHE of Lancaster, daughter of HENRY Duke of Lancaster & his wife Isabel de Beaumont (25 Mar 1345-Bolingbroke Castle, Lincolnshire of the Black death 12 Sep 1369, bur Old St Paul’s Cathedral, London). The Chronicon Angliæ records the marriage “XIV Kal Jun...apud Radinggum” of “dominus Johannes de Gaunt filius regis E[dwardi] comes Rychemund” and “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastriæ”, dated to 1359 from the context[1031]. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “Johannes Gaunt Dux Lancastrie et quartus filius Edward III” married firstly “Blanchiam filiam Henrici ducis Lancastrie”[1032]. Co-heir of her father, she inherited the earldom of Lancaster, Pontefract castle as well as land in Lancashire and Cheshire. She succeeded her sister to the other half of her father's property, including the earldom of Leicester, in 1362. She is the subject of Chaucer's Boke of the Duchesse. The Chronicon Angliæ records the death of “Blanchia ducissa Lancastriæ” and her burial “in ecclesia Sancti Pauli Londoniarum”, dated to 1369 from the context[1033]. She died of bubonic plague.
     "m secondly (Roquefort, Guyenne 21 Sep 1371) Infanta doña CONSTANZA de Castilla, [illegitimate] daughter of PEDRO I “el Cruel” King of Castile & his mistress [first wife] doña María de Padilla (Castrojerez [Jun/Jul] 1354-Leicester Castile 24 Mar 1394, bur Newark Abbey, Leicester). Ayala´s Crónica de Pedro I records that the king heard news in Jul 1354 of the birth of “una fija de Doña Maria de Padilla...Doña Constanza” in “la villa de Castro Xeriz”, adding that she later married “el Duque de Alencastre” and that their daughter “la Reyna Doña Catalina...es agora muger del Rey Don Enrique”[1034]. She succeeded her father 13 Mar 1369 as de iure Queen of Castile and Leon. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “Johannes Gaunt Dux Lancastrie et quartus filius Edward III” married secondly “Constanciam filiam regis Hispaniarum”[1035].

She had been governess to John of Gaunt's daughters by his first wife, and became his mistress [1371/72]. A late 15th century/early 16th century manuscript records that “post mortem Constancie secunde uxoris”, “Johannes Gaunt” married “dominam Katerinam de Swynfurth” by whom “in diebus domine Blanchie prime uxoris sue” he had “Johannem Bowfurth comitem Somersissie, Johannam Bowfurth comitissam Westmorelandie, Henricum Bowfurth presbiterum cardinalem et episcopum Wyntonyensem...Thomam Bowforth ducem Exoniensem vel Exeter” who were legitimated by the Pope and called “Bowfurthes aut Faerborne”[1037]. The register of John of Gaunt records the grant of “the wardship of the lands and heir to Sire Robert Deyncourt” to “Katharine Swynford for her and for her daughter Blanche” [presumably born from Katharine´s first marriage], dated Jan 1374[1038].

Her children by John of Gaunt were legitimated 1 Sep 1396 by Pope Boniface IX and 9 Feb 1397 by charter of King Richard II, but excluded from the succession by the latter charter. The will of "John son of the King of England, Duke of Lancaster", dated 3 Feb 1397, chose burial “in the cathedral church of St Paul, of London...beside my...late wife Blanch”, bequeathed property to “Dame Katherine del Staple...my...wife Katherine...my...brother the Duke of York...my...son Henry Duke of Hereford, Earl of Derby...my...daughter Philippa Queen of Portugal...my...daughter Katherine Queen of Castile and Leon...my...daughter Elizabeth Duchess of Exeter...my...son John Beaufort Marquis of Dorset...my...son the Bishop of Lincoln...my...son Thomas Beaufort...my...daughter their sister Countess of Westmoreland and Lady of Nevil...my...son John brother to...Henry...Mons.

Per Genealogics:
     "Catherine was born in Picardy on 25 November 1340, the daughter of Sir Payn Roet. In May 1366 she married her first husband Sir Hugh Swynford, a member of the retinue of John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster. They had a son Thomas who would have progeny. After Hugh's death in 1371 she became John of Gaunt's mistress and governess of his children by his second wife, Constance of Castile. John of Gaunt and Catherine Swynford had four children who received the surname of Beaufort, after one of his estates. Two sons and a daughter would have progeny.
     "After Constance's death in 1394, John of Gaunt married Catherine Swynford on 13 January 1396, and the marriage and its issue were declared legitimate by Pope Boniface IX, and in 1397 their children were legitimised by Act of Parliament in which they are described as 'vos gui magne probitatis ingenio vite ac morum honestate fulgetis'. However in 1407 King Henry IV added a proviso to the legitimisation that they had no claim to the throne. Catherine died on 10 May 1403."6

     As the granddaughter of King Edward III, she is royalty rather than nobility, and her children made excellent marriages into the families of dukes and earls. Her progeny through the centuries is remarkable.
     Lady Joan de Beaufort first married Sir Robert de Ferrers, 3rd Lord Ferrers of Wem. They had two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary Ferrers. See below.
     After the death of Sir Robert, Lady Joan married Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland. Together they had 14 children, 9 sons and 5 daughters at Raby Castle, Durham, England.
     Their children and grandchildren participated in the England and Scotland courts for nearly 100 years, carrying forward the line of the House of Plantagenet, the House of York, and the House of Lancaster. (rewritten by Vicki Hittson) Bio by: Joyce Ann Mize

     "Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmorland
     "Joan Beaufort (c.?1379 – 13 November 1440), was the youngest of the four legitimised children and only daughter of John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster (third surviving son of King Edward III), by his mistress, later wife, Katherine Swynford.[2] She married Ralph de Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland and in her widowhood became a powerful landowner in the North of England.
Early life
     "The year and place of Joan's birth is unknown. She may have been born at Kettlethorpe in Lincolnshire, the seat of the Swynford family, or at Pleshey in Essex, the home of Joan FitzAlan.[3] The usual date given for Joan's birth is 1379, but Alison Weir believes 1377 may be more accurate.[3][4] Joan may have been named after Joan of Kent. at the time of her birth Dowager Princess of Wales.[3] In September 1396 she, together with her siblings, the children of John of Gaunt and Katherine Swynford, were legitimized by papal bull.[2]
Marriages & issue
First marriage
     "In 1386 her father arranged for her to be betrothed to Robert Ferrers, 5th Baron Boteler of Wem[2] (d. circa 1395). The marriage took place in 1391/2 at Beaufort-en-Vallée, Anjou and the couple remained in the household of her father.[3] Ferrers died only three years after the marriage, having had two daughters by Joan:[2]
     "Elizabeth Ferrers, 6th Baroness Boteler of Wem (1393–1474).[5] She is buried at Black Friars Church, York. She married John de Greystoke, 4th Baron Greystoke (1389–1436), on 28 October 1407 in Greystoke Castle, Greystoke, Cumberland, and had issue.
Margaret (or Mary) Ferrers (1394 – 25 January 1457/1458).[5] She married her stepbrother, Sir Ralph Neville, son of Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmoreland, c. 1413 in Oversley, Warwickshire, and had issue.
Second marriage
     "In November 1396 Joan married secondly to the recently widowed Ralph Neville, 1st Earl of Westmorland (d.1425),[3] who had twelve children by his first wife and fathered a further fourteen by Joan.[3] On the marriage her father settled on the couple for life an annuity of £206 13s 4d.[3] The couple's primary residence was the ancient Neville seat of Raby Castle in County Durham.[6] Joan Beaufort and Ralph Neville had the following 14 children:[7]
     ---Joan Neville (b. 1397), became a nun of the Order of St. Clare.[2]
     ---Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury (1398–1460), married Alice Montacute, suo jure 5th Countess of Salisbury.[2] Had issue.
     ---Lady Katherine Neville (b. 1399),[2] married first on 12 January 1411 John Mowbray, 2nd Duke of Norfolk; married second Sir Thomas Strangways; married third John Beaumont, 1st Viscount Beaumont; married fourth Sir John Woodville (d. 12 August 1469).
     ---Henry Neville (b. 1400), died in infancy.[2]
     ---Thomas Neville (b. 1401), died as a child.[2]
     ---Cuthbert Neville (b.1402), died in infancy.[2]
     ---Lady Eleanor Neville (1403-1472), married first Richard le Despenser, 4th Baron Burghersh, married second Henry Percy, 2nd Earl of Northumberland.[2]
     ---Robert Neville (1404-1457), Bishop of Durham.[2]
     ---William Neville, 1st Earl of Kent (c.1406–1463), married Joan Fauconberg.[2]
     ---Lady Anne Neville (c. 1408–20 September 1480), married Humphrey Stafford, 1st Duke of Buckingham.[2]
     ---John Neville (b. 1411), died in infancy.[2]
     ---George Neville, 1st Baron Latimer (1414-1469)[2]
     ---Lady Cecily Neville (1415–1495) ("Proud Cis"), married Richard, 3rd Duke of York, and mothered Kings Edward IV of England and Richard III of England.[2]
     ---Edward Neville, 3rd Baron Bergavenny (d. 1476), married Elizabeth Beauchamp.[2]
Life
     "In 1399 Joan was made a Lady of the Order of the Garter by King Richard II.[8] Although that king had created Ralph as the first Earl of Westmorland, Ralph sided with Joan's half-brother Henry Bolingbroke who deposed Richard in 1399 and assumed the throne as King Henry IV.[9][10][11] Joan and Ralph were granted numerous offices, lands, wardships and pensions under Henry IV.[10][11] Joan was named in royal grants as "the King's sister."[6]
     "Ralph and Joan used their relationship with Henry IV to seek out the best marriages for their children, often purchasing the wardships and marriages of children orphaned by aristocratic rebellions.[2] For example, in 1423, Ralph purchased the wardship of Richard of York, 3rd Duke of York who lived with the family at Raby Castle[11] and was accordingly later married to Cecily Neville, one of the daughters of Richard and Joan. J. R. Lander called these machinations "the most amazing series of child marriages in English history."[2][12] By the time of her death, Joan was the mother of an earl, three barons, a countess, three duchesses and a bishop.[12]
     "In about 1413 Joan invited the mystic Margery Kempe to the family home[2] and it is likely that she helped to fund Margery's pilgrimage to Jerusalem.[2] In 1422 Joan acquired an indult permitting her to stay with any order of nuns attended by "eight honest women."[2]
Later life and death
After Ralph's death in 1425, the title Earl of Westmorland passed to Ralph's eldest grandson from his first marriage but many of the Neville lands were transferred to Joan's eldest son Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury.[10] This sparked the Neville-Neville Feud between the two lines descended from Ralph, which continued into the Wars of the Roses.
     "During her widowhood Joan became a patron of literature.[7] In about 1430 Joan and her family were depicted by Pol de Limbourg in the Neville Book of Hours.[6] In 1428 Joan undertook a religious pilgrimage and joined the Sisterhood of the Abbey of St. Alban's.[2] At some point during her widowhood Joan swore a vow of chastity.[2]
Death & burial
     "Joan died on 13 November 1440 at Howden in Yorkshire[13] and was buried beside her mother in Lincoln Cathedral.[13][6]
Descendants
     "Joan Beaufort was the mother of Cecily, Duchess of York, and thus was a grandmother of King Edward IV and of King Richard III. The latter was defeated in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry VII who replaced him as king. Henry then married Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV, and their son became King Henry VIII. Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr, was also a descendant of Joan through her eldest son Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury, thus Henry's third cousin. The 5th Earl of Salisbury was father to Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick, "the Kingmaker" (father of Queen consort Anne Neville and Isabel Neville, Duchess of Clarence).

;
Per Genealogics:
     "Ralph Nevill was born before 1364 in Raby Castle, son of John Nevill, 3rd Lord Nevill of Raby, and Maud Percy. He may have received a dispensation to marry from Pope Urban V in or before 1370, but it is not recorded when he married Margaret Stafford, daughter of Hugh de Stafford, 3rd Baron and 2nd Earl of Stafford, and Philippa de Beauchamp, by whom he became the father of nine children. On 17 October 1388 his father died and, as 4th Lord Nevill, he was summoned to Parliament from 6 December 1389 till 30 November 1396. After the death of his wife he married, before 29 November 1396, the widowed Lady Ferrers, Joan Beaufort who, in 1397, was legitimised by her father, John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. They became the parents of fourteen children.
     "He was Constable of the Tower of London from 21 September till 30 October 1397. For his support of the king against the Duke of Gloucester and the Lords Appellant during 1387 and 1388, he was created Earl of Westmorland on 29 September 1397. However, together with the Earl of Northumberland, he was one of the first to join the banished Duke of Hereford (Henry IV), after the latter's landing at Ravenspur in July 1399.
     "Ralph Nevill, Earl of Westmorland, played an important role in procuring King Richard II's abdication and the subsequent elevation of the Duke of Hereford as King Henry IV. On the day of Henry IV's coronation, 30 September 1399, where he carried the Sceptre, he was made Marshal of England for life but resigned this office around 1412. Previously, about 1403, he was made a Knight of the Garter.
     "He was with the king in Wales when the Scots were defeated by the Percies at Homildon Hill on 14 September 1402. He took arms against the Earl of Northumberland in the north of England when the king defeated 'Hotspur' and his uncle Worcester at Shrewsbury in July 1403. On 29 May 1405 he met the rebelling Archbishop Scrope and Lord Mowbray at Shipton Moor where, after a friendly conference, he arrested them in a somewhat unscrupulous manner.
     "About 1408 he founded the collegiate church at Staindrop in County Durham.

     "MARGARET STAFFORD, was married to RALPH NEVILLE, K.G., 4th Lord Neville of Raby, P.C., son and heir of John de Neville, 3rd Lord Neville of Raby (of Magna Carta Surety descent and descendant of Charlemagne), by Maud (of Magna Carta Surety descent and descendant of Charlemagne), daughter of Henry de Percy, of Alnwick, Northumberland, Baron of Topcliffe, co. York, 2nd Lord Percy. He was born before 1364 (aged twenty-four at his father's death). They had nine children. She died on 9 June 1396, and was buried at Brancepeth, Durham. He took part in the Earl of Buckingham's expedition to Brittany, where he was knighted at St. Omer in July 1380. He succeeded his father on 17 Oct. 1388, and was summoned to Parliament from 6 Dec. 1389, by writs directed Radulpho de Nevyll de Raby. From 1389 till 1424 he was continually employed on the Border in negotiating truces and peace with Scotland. He was married for the second time before 20 Feb. 1397 to JOAN BEAUFORT, widow of Robert Ferrers, 2nd Lord Ferrers of Wem, co. Salop (died before 29 Nov. 1396), and legitimised daughter of John of Lancaster [of Gaunt], Duke of Lancaster (fourth son of King Edward III), by his third wife Katherine, daughter of Payn de Roët, Knt [see BEAUFORT 10 for descendants of this marriage]. She was born about 1379. He was created Earl of Westmorland on 29 Sep. 1397. His near alliance to the House of Lancaster (being son-in-law of John of Gaunt), led him to forsake the King, and take a prominent part in the elevation of Henry of Bolingbroke, the exiled Duke of Lancaster, to the throne as King Henry IV. RALPH NEVILLE, Earl of Westmorland, died testate at Raby Castle on 21 Oct. 1425, and was buried at Staindrop, Durham (M.I. to him and his two wives). His second wife, on whom the lordships of Middleham and Sheriff-Hutton, with other extensive lands, were settled, left them to her eldest son, Richard, Earl of Salisbury. This caused a feud between her and her sons on the one side, and the grandsons of her husband by his first wife on the other, which resulted in the elder branch espousing the cause of Lancaster, and Salisbury and his brothers, that of York. Joan Beaufort, Countess of Westmorland, died testate at Howden on 13 Nov. 1440, and was buried (with her mother) in Lincoln Cathedral (M.I).
