    Reigned 1199-1216. Signed Magna Carta in 1215 at Runnymede. His reign saw renewal of war with Phillip II Augustus of France to whom he has lost several continental possesions including Normandy by 1205. He came into conflict with his Barons and was forced to Sign the Magna Carta. His later
    repudiation of the charter led to the first barons war 1215-17 during which John died. Burke says he was born in 1160. King of Ireland 1177, Count of Mortain 1189, Earl of Gloucester.Called Lackland because by the time he was born, his older brothers' inheritances had been decided, and there was little left for him (Warren, King John, pg 28). Barber, The Devil's Crown, pg 53 states: that "no provision was made for John, who, born nine years after the last son's birth, was too young to be considered in an age when infant mortality was very high."

    John married Isabella Of ANGOULEME 24 Aug 1200, Bordeaux, Gironde, France. Isabella (daughter of Aymer "Taillifer" DE VALENCE and Alice DE COURTENAY) was born 1188, Angouleme; died 31 May 1246, Fontevraud; was buried , Fontevrault Abbey. [Group Sheet]

    Other Events:

    • Name: Isabella De Taillefer
    • Name: Isabelle Of Angouleme
    • Crowned: 08 Oct 1200, Westminster Abbey

    Notes:

    Isabella, "as a penance for her sins", she desired to be buried humbly in a common cemetary at Fontevrault.
    Her son, Henry III "some years later" had her body moved into the Abbey and ordered an effigy for her tomb.

    Isabella's varying situations demonstrate the modern-day definitions of the different kinds of queens. When she was married to the reigning king, she was a queen consort. When John died, she became a queen dowager, and if she had ruled for her young son, Henry III, she would also have been a queen regent.
