On the 25th of January 1308, Edward II and Isabella of France, the 12 year old daughter of Philip IV of France, were married at Boulogne-sur-Mer in northern France.1 The marriage between Edward and Isabella had first been agreed in the Treaty of Montreuil of 1299, and the two were formally betrothed in 1303.2 However, the marriage was continually delayed due to the dispute between England and France over the duchies of Aquitaine and Gascony.
