Edward II of England
King of England from 1307 until he was deposed in January 1327.
The fourth son of Edward I, Edward became the heir to the throne following the death of his older brother Alphonso. He grew up to be tall and athletic, and was considered good-looking by his contemporaries. From 1300 onward, Edward accompanied his father on campaigns to pacify Scotland, and in 1307 he was knighted in a grand ceremony at Westminster Abbey. Edward succeeded to the throne later that year, following his father's death. In 1308, he married Isabella of France, the daughter of the powerful King Philip IV, as part of a long-running effort to resolve the tensions between the English and French crowns
