Post Mortem Birthday Greetings to Edward II and Roger de Mortimer!

Happy very belated birthday to both! I always think it such an irony that these two men shared the same birthday, the same birth sign and yet were such different characters! I suppose it doesn’t say much for horoscopes 😉 Edward was born in 1284 at Caernarvon, in north Wales at one of his father’s new (and still being built) castles. Roger was born a few years later, in 1287, at Wigmore.

Also born on this day, which, incidentally is St Mark’s Day:
Ella Fitzgerald; Oliver Cromwell; Guglielmo Marconi; Al Pacino. It is also Anzac Day, National Zucchini Bread Day, Cuckoo Day and Swaziland national Flag Day amongst others!
