The History Jar @ Orange Box

March 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

A day school to learn about Isabella of France – the She-Wolf, her husband and their lovers.

Isabella was the only queen of England to order the execution of a king. Find out about the arranged marriage to the most handsome man in Europe and the consequences of his disastrous infatuations with his favourites.

Discover how Isabella turned from a loyal wife, a political mediator and mother to four children into she-wolf leading the most successful invasion of England since the conquest. We will also explore how she came to have possession of her husband’s heart – in a silver casket.

We will explore the role of Roger Mortimer, the queen’s lover and the impact of the Earl of Kent’s rebellion and consider her punishment and rehabilitation at the court of her son Edward III.
