Product Description

Two Barons wore the Mortimer livery in the period of the Scottish Wars. Sir Roger Mortimer Baron of Chirk who fought for the crown at Falkink in 1298, Caerlaveroch in 1300, and Bannockburn in 1314.
The second Sir Roger Mortimer was Baron of Wigmore, nephew of Sir Roger of Chirk.
Younger, very handsome, treacherous and greedy, Sir Roger of Wigmore became Queen Isabella’s lover and eventually came to virtually rule England via his manipulation of the Queen.
Both of the Mortimer barons were incarcerated by Edward II for their role in Marcher Barons rebellion. The two barons were imprisoned in the Tower of London where in 1326 the elder Sir Roger died. The younger, Sir Roger of Wigmore managed to escape from his cell and fled temporarily to France. Subsequent to the grisley murder of Edward II, Mortimer continued his sinister domination of the queen with an objective of ascending the throne himself.
Young King Edward III in 1330 captured Sir Roger of Wigmore in a midnight raid on his quarters and hanged him for his crimes against the monarchy. Edward’s mother was removed to a convent where she spent the balance of her life.
