Oops, I meant to write a blog post today on this most special day, but completely forgot. :-) 730 years ago today, on 25 April 1284, Edward II was born in Caernarfon, North Wales. Happy Birthday, my dear lord king! Here instead is a post I wrote about his birth several years ago. Today is also the birthday of Roger Mortimer (1287) and of Louis IX of France (1214), great-grandfather of Edward's queen Isabella. Many happy returns, all!
Normal blog- writing service to be resumed soon, I hope :-)
