    Marriage 1 King Edward "Longshanks" PLANTAGENET b: 17 JUN 1239 in Westminster Palace,London
    • Married: 01 NOV 1254 in Abbey of Santa Maria la Real de Las Hueglas in Castile
    • Note:
      Marriage (1 November 1254):
      Eleanor's marriage in 1254 to the future Edward I of England was not the first marriage her family planned for her. The Kings of
      Castile had long made a flimsy claim to be paramount lords of the Kingdom of Navarre in the Pyrenees, and from 1820 Ferdinand III
      and Eleanor's half-brother Alfonso X of Castile, hoped she would marry Theobald II of Navarre. To avoid Castilian control, Margaret
      of Bourbon (mother of Theobald II) in 1252 allied with James I of Aragon instead, and as part of that treaty solemnly promised that
      Theobald would never marry Eleanor.
      It is worth noting that Eleanor was just 13 years old at the time of her marriage and Edward not very much older, at 15. Uncommon
      for such marriages of the period, the couple loved each other. Moreover like his father, Edward was very devoted to his Queen and
      was faithful to her throughout their married life - a rarity amongst monarchs of the time. He was deeply affected by her death. He
      displayed his grief by erecting 12 so-called Eleanor crosses, one at each place where her funeral cortege stopped for the night.
      I can well recall the one that stands outside Charing Cross Station, which I believe originally stood at the top of The Mall.
