Edward II Pics!

Happy Easter, everyone!  As I'm fairly busy at the moment with family visits, writing, work, Easter etc, here's a quick post with some Edward II-related photos till I get round to writing a proper post sometime next week.  ;-)

Inside Caernarfon Castle, looking towards the Eagle Tower (with flags), traditionally Edward's birthplace.
Rievaulx Abbey, North Yorkshire (1132-1538), where Edward was almost captured by a Scottish force in October 1322.

Ludlow Castle, Shropshire, which belonged to Roger Mortimer.

Part of the ruins of Knaresborough Castle, Yorkshire, which Edward granted to Piers Gaveston.
.
Edward's tomb and effigy in Gloucester Cathedral.
Tomb of Edward's powerful favourite Hugh Despenser the Younger at Tewkesbury Abbey.

Berkeley Castle, Gloucestershire, where Edward was held in captivity in 1327.
