bullet  General Notes:

Acceded 1/02/1327. Reigned 1327-1377. Edward assumed effective power
in 1330 after imprisoning his mother and executing her lover Roger de
Mortimer who had murdered his father; thereafter his reign was
dominated by military adventures. His victory in Scotland, especially
at Haildon Hill 1333 encouraged him to plan (1363) the union of
England and Scotland. Through his mother he claimed the French throne
thus starting (1337) the Hundred years war. His son John of Gaunt
dominated the government during his last years. Died of a Stroke.
