    A papal dispensation by Clement V in November permitted her immediate marriage by proxydespite the fact that she was probably only 10 years old. This made her the perfect candidate for a political marriage and when an Anglo-French treaty was negotiated by William de la Pole, Duke of Suffolk, Margaret sealed the deal. The prayer roll is, quite simply, an object to be treasured. Once Charles IV took up the throne, Edward had attempted to avoid doing so again, increasing tensions between the two.

    Born in the 13th century, she was expected to marry who her father told her to without any hesitation. Talbot and his second wife are themselves pictured penitentially in illuminations in the manuscript. The twins cried in their basket until the waters receded and left them back on land. Louis' brother, Philippe, Count de Poitiersand Valois both try to assert some influence over the indecisive king, Philippe for the good of the kingdom and Valois for personal gain.

    Edward looked the part of a Plantagenet king to perfection. What is the prayer roll? Indeed, John Deydrasa royal Pretender, appeared in Oxfordclaiming to have been switched with Edward at birth, and to be the real king of England himself. From the Hardcover edition Marigny finds that his enemies—led by Charles, Count of Valois—are systematically excluding him from the new king's inner circle.
