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!

About Jules Frusher

With an MA in Creative and Critical Writing, I am passionate about the written word. The other great loves of my life are all things Medieval (especially Hugh le Despenser the Younger) and animal behaviour (especially canids and corvids). Give me a castle in the wilderness (with Broadband!) and I'll be happy!
