The Edward II blog is taking a break until around the 6th of January, so let me wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year, and may you have a wonderful festive season!
I've written posts about Edward II and Christmas before: see here, here, here, here and here. And as it's the festive season and I feel like being light-hearted, here are some links to amusing posts you might have missed:
Edward II joins Facebook
Edward II joins Facebook, part 2
Isabella of France and the Support Group for Tragic Queens
Edward II and the Support Group for People Unfairly Maligned in Historical Fiction
My super-snarky post detailing clichés about Edward II in fiction.
And on a more serious note:
My ten commandments for writing historical fiction and about history, one of my most popular posts ever.
The possible death of Edward II in 1327, which actually is my most popular post ever, and over six years old now, wow.
Why we can be sure that Edward II was the father of Isabella's children, another much-viewed page (thank goodness).
A post inspired by my irritation at the trend in histfict to depict various kings as not really the sons of their fathers, with particular reference to Henry III and Edward I. Be sure to read Sarah's excellent post on the subject too.
Merry Christmas! See you in 2013 for more Edward II defending! :-)
