Isabella of France and her husband Edward II’s marriage was turbulent and marked by rumors of infidelity. Isabella’s “affair” with Roger Mortimer, a powerful nobleman, became widely known and they plotted to overthrow Edward II. Their plot succeeded, resulting in Edward II’s deposition and possible murder. This scandalous period remains one of the most controversial in English royal history, and Chris Riley joins the show again to discuss this fascinating woman with Steph.
