A man in half figure with short, curly hair and a hint of beard is facing left. He wears a coronet and holds a sceptre in his right hand. He has a blue robe over a red tunic, and his hands are covered by white, embroidered gloves. His left hand seems to be pointing left, to something outside the picture.

EDWARD II/RELATIONSHIP OF EDWARD II AND
ISABELLA/DID EDWARD II NEGLECT HIS WIFE?
REACTION ON FACEBOOK PAGE OF KATHRYN
WARNER ”EDWARDOFCEARNARFON”
Yes, Edward likely neglected his wife.
I will explain below what lead to my repeated statement about the
neglection of Isabella by her husband King  Edward II,
since I had already answered this  in my last article.
BUT FIRST THIS:
Yesterday I travelled with you to the past, writing about
And coming back to 2015, I have a need to travel to
Edward’s time again.
Accompany me and enter the world.

 

 

 

Being fascinating by the period of Edward II, as by
writer of the book ”Edward II, an Unconventional
King” and having a very interesting Blog, ”Edwardthe
secondBlogspot”, in which I have found many
interesting facts for writing my article.
To my amazement and honour I just posted
my comment or I got an interesting reaction
on a following sentence in my article
was:

neglection [which I call it when a man so obviously chooses
for favourites, not only politically, but also emotionally].” Couldn’t disagree more. Why do you think that because Edward had ‘favourites’ that necessarily means he neglected his wife?”

Now to me it is an obvious form of neglection
[without giving a moral condemnation, understanding
the emotional problems of Edward II, being attracted to
granting them that much power, that they forbid
That’s called emotional and formal neglection,
since the wife [here Isabella] is not only
emotionally deprived [her husband deeply involved 
with another], but also formal by not having access
to her husband alone, so neglecting her political
position as a Queen and daughter to a King
 
 
It gives you and me an insight to the relationship
of Edward II and Isabella, who both must have suffered
on their own way.
Isabella because of the painful neglection in her
marriage.
Edward, because he was not free for the world
to follow his deepest emotions.
As I have commented earlier

KING EDWARD II AND HIS NEGLECTION OF HIS WIFE,
ISABELLA OF FRANCE
Dear Mrs Warner [I suppose]
You wrote to me
Edward II
April 11 at 12:54pm
“But also because of Edward´s yearlong neglection [which I call it when a man so obviously chooses for favourites, not only politically, but also emotionally].” Couldn’t disagree more. Why do you think that because Edward had ‘favourites’ that necessarily means he neglected his wife?” [17]
Thanks for your reaction, which mean that you
value and read my comments.
And of course you may disagree with me, even totally.
I will try to explain my point of view about
the neglection of Edward II of his wife Isabella:
ARGUMENTS FOR EDWARDS NEGLECTION
OF HIS WIFE, ISABELLA OF FRANCE:
I don’t write things ”out of the blue”, but
base myself not on my own assumptions, but
on historical facts and sources, as
you can see of my notes in my articles
 
and 
 
PIERS GAVESTON AND HUGH DESPENSER THE YOUNGER
NOT JUST ”FAVOURITES”
You are right, that having ”favourites” doesn’t necessarily
means, that Edward neglected his wife.
But not only they weren’t ”just favourites”, facts
show, Edward has likely neglected his wife:
Favourites and facts, which show the neglection:
As I said:
They were not just ”favourites”, but especially
in the case of Piers Gaveston it was a
deep and [supposedly] sexual relationship, which
excludes a good and lasting relationship with his wife.
See Edward II’s odd behaviour during the coronation dinner.
promising nothing good.
Well, in my book, hanging to the wall  tapestries, bearing
the arms of Piers, and at the other side your [Edward’s]
own, as if Piers were Edward’s consort, as neglecting your new bride during the
coronation dinner, only talking to Piers [which naturally
grieved Isabella’s uncles]  is one thing and could be an accident.
 
BUT THAT WAS NOT ALL:
 
After Piers tragic death [and after passing some
other favourites] Edward had a deep and [probably] sexual relationship with
Despenser the Younger.
That’s another emotional neglection of his wife.
Apart from that, the Despensers
had great political power, which was that great,
that they didn’t allow
Isabella to see her husband alone and Edward apparently agreed with it.
I quote:
”They didn’t allow anyone access to Edward unless at least one of them was present – including, amazingly enough, Queen Isabella, who was not allowed to see her husband alone.”
EDWARDTHESECONDBLOGSPOT
EDWARD II’S OTHER GREAT FAVOURITE, HUGH
DESPENSER THE YOUNGER
That means that at that moment, Edward let others [Despensers]
treat his wife without respect, he neglected her, emotionally,
but also in her position as a Queen and daughter to a King.
Another source for the neglect is an authority, far greater than my
modest self, Dr Helen Castor, who made an interesting
 interesting documentary I advise you to
look at on Youtube.com
But probably you know it already:
SHE WOLVES
ENGLAND’S EARLY QUEENS, ISABELLA
AND MARGARET
DR HELEN CASTOR
REVIEWING PIERS GAVESTON AND THE DESPENSERS:
Edward’s obssession with Piers [understandably, since
Edward felt deeply for him, long before Isabella set footh
on English ground] was great and as a consequence emotionally excluding
his wife.
And with the Despensers, it went only worse.
So, as well with Piers as the Despensers, Isabella was
emotionally and formally [no access to her husband unless one
of the Despensers were present] neglected.
When that’s no ”neglect”, dictionary must give a new definition.
EPILOGUE:
You must understand that this ”neglect” is no moral
condemnation of Edward II’s behaviour.
Of course it was undeserved and unpleasant for
Isabella, but as I wrote, Edward was a tragical King, since
he deeply felt for his own sex and had he lived in
other times, he probably had had a lasting love
affair with Piers Gaveston
I wrote about that
”Sometimes I wonder if Edward rather had died that fatal
day his beloved Piers Gaveston lost his life………….”
 
I hope I have given you a clear answer.
Due to busy activities, regrettably I  am not able to discuss
with you further, since I also write
about the Wars of the Roses and have a lots of
other, non historical, activities.
See for your interest also my page about the Wars of
the Roses.
 
 
Thanks  for your critical reaction,
which I consider as an honour, because I can
only learn from that.
