  • Notes 
    • Harris Descent From Norman and English Royal Lines- Edward II, 1284-1327, dethroned and murdered, married Isabella, daughter of Philip IV of France. ---------------- Berkeley Castle in Gloucestershire has been the home of the Berkeley family for 850 years. As such it is a place which has been touched by history many times over the centuries. Shakespeare himself refers to this very castle in his play Richad II. But perhaps most famous of all is the fact that Berkeley Castle was the last place of residence of King Edward II, who was kept as a prisoner in the castle and murdered within its walls. When touring through the castle the first room you enter is The King's Gallery where there are many large portraits of various members of the royal family of past centuries. You can also see down into the dungeon from this room and look into the very cell where Edward II was finally murdered. It does not look as dreary and foreboding as you would imagine, but nevertheless it was not lavish as a king would expect to have and its close proximity to the dungeon would certainly have made it a much more horrendous abode. The next rooms on the tour are Drake's Room and the Tower Room. Drake's Room being named after Sir Francis Drake. The Tower Room contains a collection of mid-17th century furniture which is believed to have belonged to Sir Francis Drake himself. The spacious picture gallery follows where there are both portraits and numerous lanscapes and seascapes adorning the walls. Some of the paintings are closely related to the family history. There are pictures of the Castle and surrounding grounds and another is of a ship on which Lord Berkeley died in the 17th century. A portrait of this man is also on display in the room. The Dining Room again offers many portraits on display as well as a large late 18th century dining table and furniture. This room was previously a billiard room. The Game Larder, Buttery and Kitchen which date from the 14th century are next on the tour. The sinks here are of solid lead and the Tudor timbered roof has survived to the present day. The China Room is off of these rooms and displays numberous items of fine china just as the name suggests. In the Housekeeper's Room in the famous Godwin Cup which is said to have belonged to Earl Godwin, father of King Harold. ------------------- Descent of the English Crown- Edward II 1284-1327, King of England, 6th Plantagenet King, was born at Carnarvon Wales in 1284, became Prince of Wales upon death of his older brother and King of England on his fathers departure. Edward II proved to be a very weak king, lacking understanding, good judgement, energy will to meet his enemies, to face problems and responsibilities that befel him. Soon, he lost respect and control of his Barons and Common subjects. He lost control of Scotland which once again started raiding northern England His wife, Isabella, daughter of King Philip IV of France, became disgusted with him and with their oldest son, also Edward, left the country for France, where she assembled an army and returned to England to overthrow the King. The unpopularity of King Edward II, with all classes, made it easy for her to secure English backing Under pressure from Queen for her to secure English backing. Under pressure from Queen Isabella and the King's many enemies he was forced to sign a declaration of his many wrong doing and incompetence, after which he was brutally murdered at Berkley Castle. Not much is known of children of King Edward II and wife, Isabella: 1. Edward III 1312-1377 King of England. 2. John of Etham (not real sure of him).
