Who was King Edward I of England? And why should we learn about him?
King Edward I was the first of three Edwards who reigned in perfect succession. He was one of the most important kings in English history, but he was also one of the most controversial. This was the king who subdued Wales and fought Scotland to a standstill for much of his reign. He battled leading Scottish figures that are recognizable to even novice history students. Both William Wallace and Robert the Bruce butted heads with this English ruler.
Edward engaged in harsh crackdowns, yet he also confirmed the statutes of the Magna Carta and helped strengthen ties to parliament. Edward often behaved as an absolutist dictator with a penchant for reform. He has been described as a “great and terrible” king, whose equal parts of greatness and terribleness can easily be seen throughout his tenure as an English monarch.
In this book, you will learn about:
- Edward’s early days as prince and the impact of his childhood
