Happy Anniversary

702 years ago today Hugh and Eleanor tied the knot – so here’s wishing them a happy wedding anniversary!

Before Hugh’s execution, they’d been married for 20 years and had 10 (9 surviving) children between them. It appears they had a truely successful relationship, ulike others (such as the Earl of Surrey and Joan of Bar or Thomas of Lancaster and Alice de Lacy).

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!
