Edward I died in 1307 his son Edward II ascended the English throne. Edward II had many attributes that would contribute to his being a successful ruler: intelligent, handsome, physically strong, able in the use of arms, and the son of a great king. Unfortunately Edward II lacked discipline, character and the ability to select the right people for his court.
When Edward lost Scotland to King Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, his reign was all but doomed. The ensuing years until his murder in 1327 by his wife Queen Isabella and her lover Sir Roger Mortimer witnessed one misstep after another.
His major contribution to English history was his son and successor who became one of England’s greatest kings: Edward III.
