1. P. Cook 1993, Queen Consorts of England, pp. 66-73. Repelled by the homosexuality of her husband Edward II, she turned to Roger Mortimer who had been imprisoned in the Tower of London when Edward purged his nobility. She likely helped h im escape. She then abandoned her husband for Paris where her brother had become King. She was joined by Roger Mortimer.
Ky W. White, soc.genealogy.medieval, 18 May 1998. Isabel Capet. Died at Castle Rising, Norfolk, England. Event: Death of spouse /EDWARD II/, King of England 21 SEP 1327 Death: 22 AUG 1358 in Hertford Castle, Hertfordshire, England Note: Bu ried Grey Friars Church, Newgate, London.
Went to France in 1325 with her son Edward to render homage to King Charles IV, her brother. There she became the mistress of the exiled English baron Roger de Mortimer with whom she plotted the overthrow of the Despensers and Edward. Wit h their followers they invaded England in 1326 and found immediate support. The Despensers were captured and executed. The King was imprisoned and compelled to abdicate. Isabella and Mortimer ruled in the name of Edward III. Isabella whom E dward had neglected and treated unkindly, now showed him no mercy, she encouraged his jailers to treat him with increasing brutality, hoping that he would die, but his strength enabled him to resist malnutrition and exposure. Not daring to leave him alive, Isabella and Mortimer had him murdered horribly.
Source: Kings and Queens of Britain, By David Williamson. Isabella, The "She-Wolf of France". is remembered as the wicked Queen of English history. The daughter of two (2) sovereigns and the sister of three (3) Kings, she was affianced to the future Edward II at the age of four. Papal dispensation for the marriage was obtained in 1303 and it was solemnized at Boulogne in January 1308. The bride's portion from her father was 18, 000 pounds (a vast amount in those days), and s he was to have the reversion of the Dower settled on her Aunt Queen Margaret by Edward I. The bride's trousseau was magnificent and contained two (2) gold crowns set with jewels, gold and silver cups, gold spoons, fifty (50) silver porringe rs (bowl for porridge), and twelve (12) large and twelve small silver dishes, as well as dozens of dresses of cloth of gold cloth of silver, velvet, taffetta, and other materials, furs, household linen, and much more. The presents which her father bestowed on Edward were promptly passed to Gaveston, "whose passion for finery was insatiable", and the King's marked partiality for his kavorite started the dict which was to exist throughout the marriage. Isabella gave birth to he r first child, the future Edward III, in 1312, three more children followed at well spaced intervals, a sign that relations between husband and wife were not all they should be, in an age when annual pregnancy was the norm. The Tower of Lon don was a royal palace as well as prison at this period and it was there that Isabella first saw and fell in love with a state prisoner, Roger Mortimer. He was under sentence of death, but the queen used her influence to have his sentence c ommuted to life imprisonment and in August 1323 she connived at his escape from the Tower and flight to France. the following year things came to a head between the queen and the despensers and she left the King, who nevertheless foolishly dispatched her and their son Edward on a mission to France in September 1325. She at once joined her lover Roger Mortimer in Paris and commenced the long and sordid process which was to end in Edward II's depostion and murder. Her duplicity and mendacity were such that when her brother the King of France finally had her conduct brought to his office, he at once ordered her to quit the county and she was compelled to go to Hainault, where the Count and Countess gave her a good reception. When Isabella had gathered an army she set sail for England, landing at Harwich on 25 September 1326. She was joined by Henry of Lancaster and many Barons and Knights and was, of course, accompainied by Mortimer whom she placed in command of her forces. Events moved swiftly and the King's deposition was accomplished by January 1327. Isabella shed hypocritical tears for her husband at the coronation of her son Edward III, but the murder of Edward II later in the ye ar brought about a reaction of public feeling against her. She was by now living openly with Mortimer. Eventually Edward III was forced to take action and, in spite of his mother's cry, "Fair Son, have mercy on the gentle Mortimer!", as he was literally snatched from her arms at Nottingham Castle, Mortimer was taken and paid for his crimes at Tyburn, having the distinction of being the first person to be executed there. Edward spared his mother a public disgrace but she was o bliged to take up residence at Castle Rising in Norfolk and live there quietly, occasionally visited by the King, until her death in August 1358. her body was taken to London and buried in Grey Friars Church, where Mortimer's body had been consigned many years previously. "Carrying her characteristic hypocristy even to the grave," sats Agnes Strickling, "she was buried with the heart of her murdered husband on her breast." Isabella's statuette forms one of the "weepers" on th e tomb of her son John of Eltham and her head also appears as a carving in Winchelsea Church.
