I'm surprised such a great king (viewed in the light of his times) should only have one 'episode', while Edward I (another 'great') got three.

Edward was crowned at the age of fourteen, following the deposition of his father. When he was only seventeen years old, he led a coup against the de facto ruler of the country, his mother's consort Roger Mortimer, and began his personal reign. After a successful campaign in Scotland in 1333, he declared himself rightful heir to the French throne in 1337, starting what would become known as the Hundred Years' War.

What about King Edward the Square Root of Two? There's very little scholarship about him.

Edward III (13 November 1312 – 21 June 1377) was King of England from 1327 until his death and is noted for his military success. Restoring royal authority after the disastrous reign of his father, Edward II, Edward III went on to transform the Kingdom of England into one of the most formidable military powers in Europe. His reign saw vital developments in legislation and government—in particular the evolution of the English parliament—as well as the ravages of the Black Death.

"The Perfect King" Edward III. It's a good book very readable. Edward III was one of the greatest Kings England ever had. The above film is a very light potted history. Edward III reigned as King of England for 50 years. So his story goes much deeper than what your getting here.

Edward III is by far my favorite medieval icon.

Oops sorry. His dad a did have a few problems. Did you know that there is quite a good chance that Edward II didn't die at Berkerley castle in1327 ? There is evidence that he lived until 1341 & died in Italy. I hope it's true, I'd hate to think of anyone getting a red hot poker shoved up the bum.

Interesting man. His descendants were responsible for the Wars of the Roses.

Both Edward III and Edward the black prince were the best generals England ever had.

I dont believe so because Edward the Third was from the Plantagenet family. Not a Norman denisty.

But actually Edward III was descended from Ethelred the Unready as his ancestor Henry I(Norman king) married Edith, the Great-great-granddaughter of Ethelred

He remains one of only six monarchs to have ruled England or its successor kingdoms for more than fifty years.

No problem, i was quite surprised when i saw that Edward III was a direct descendent of Harold Godwinson as well. I had always assumed that Harold Godwinson's children had died because of the Norman conquest and that his family line had ended. It's nice to see the old English nobility linked with the Plantagenet kings, it makes them feel more like 'true' kings of England rather than a foreign French family who inherited the throne.

I guess.But there are many accounts to the story.Some say he escaped but it is most likely fictional.some say he died by the red hot poker,some say he suffocated.Whatever it is,we may never know the truth:)

Hi,recently,I discovered that Henry VIII was descended from Roger Mortimer(Boyfriend of Edward III's mom Isabella of France)!
Report spam or abuse
May be true,but highly unlikely as he was under close guard in Berkeley. Second,only one man claimed that Edward II survived.And lastly,he disappeared from sight in 1327 and a funeral was held for him.However,you might want to know that the red hot poker up his anus may not be true too.He could have been suffocated.

I dont know if anyone knows this but Edward III is a descendent of Harold Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon king of England.

Following some initial setbacks, the war went exceptionally well for England; the victories of Crécy and Poitiers led to the highly favourable Treaty of Brétigny. Edward's later years, however, were marked by international failure and domestic strife, largely as a result of his inactivity and bad health.

Have you read what Dr Ian Mortimer wrote on the subject ? If not it's online google DR I M. A note on the death of Edward II. Well worth reading whatever the truth.

Edward III was a temperamental man, but also capable of unusual clemency. He was in many ways a conventional king, whose main interest was warfare. Admired in his own time and for centuries after, Edward was denounced as an irresponsible adventurer by later Whig historians such as William Stubbs. This view has been challenged recently, and modern historiography credits him with some significant achievements.

I actually discovered it by accident on wikipedia. If you trace Edward III family through his mothers side you eventually reach Harold Godwinson. 1) Edward III 2) Isabella of France 3) Philip IV 4) Isabella of Aragon 5) Violant of Hungary 6) Andrew II of Hungary 7) Bela III of Hungary 8) Euphrosyne of Kiev 9) Mstislav I of Kiev 10) Gytha of Wessex 11) Harold Godwinson If you follow the family tree in that order you will see that Edward III is a direct descendent of Harold Godwinson.
