Eleanor of CASTILE [15720]

  • Marriage (1): King Edward I LONGSHANKS of England [15719]

bullet  General Notes:

Eleanor was daughter of Ferdinard III. King of Castile by his wife Joanna Countess of Ponthien.

Eleanor died on 28 November 1290 and was buried in Westminister Abbey. . . . . Uncommon for such marriages of the period, the couple loved each other. Moreover like his father, Edward was very devoted to his queen and was faithful to her throughout their married lives-a rarity among monarchs of the time. He was deeply affected by her death. He displayed his grief by erecting twelve so-called Eleanor crosses (including Charing Cross) , one at each place where her funeral cortège stopped for the night.


Eleanor married King Edward I LONGSHANKS of England [15719] [MRIN: 5594], son of King Henry III of ENGLAND [6743] and Eleanor of PROVENCE [15722]. (King Edward I LONGSHANKS of England [15719] was born in 1239, died in 1307 in Burgh-on-the-Sands Carlisle and was buried in Westminster Abbey London.)
