Hi, my name is Layne. I'm 39, and a native of Montana, USA. It's nice to find a forum about any kind of medieval period. I got interested in Edward II's time from reading the medieval mysteries of Michael Jecks. Is anyone else familiar with them?

Hi Layne, and welcome! I've read a few of Jecks' novels, and rather enjoy them. I especially like the later ones, when Edward II, Isabella, Hugh Despenser etc appear as characters. Jecks is good at capturing the atmosphere of the era, I think (though I've spotted a few historical inaccuracies, but that's just me being nit-picky!)

"Sans lui n'estoit rien fait, et par lui estoit tous fait, et le creoit li rois plus que tout le monde." Without him nothing is done and through him everything is done, and the king trusts him more than any other: Hugh Despenser the Younger and Edward II

Welcome Layne! I haven't read any of Jecks work - looks like I'll have to check them out.
