I just finished reading Maureen Peters' novel on Edward I's second wife, Marguerite. I'm trying to refresh my memory now about her relationship with Edward II after his father's death. Doesn't seem to be much information--am I missing something?

Marguerite was involved in the nobles' attempts to banish Piers Gaveston in 1308 - she's meant to have given money, along with her brother Philip IV, to aid the opposition against him. I don't know for sure, but I imagine that Edward II would have found this pretty unforgiveable, and she rarely if ever visited court after 1308 - kind of banished to her estates, maybe.

I've often read that Edward had a close relationship with Marguerite, but I don't see any evidence for that myself! Wink
