Kelly (kcgidget0685) | 10 comments Does anyone have any good book recommendations on Edward I/Longshanks? Or Edward II and Isabella of France? Fiction or non-fiction are both ok :) thanks!

Meredith (plantgirl) There's a nonfiction book called Queen Isabella by Alison Weir that is very good.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 12 comments Yes, that's the one I'd have suggested as well.

Mind you, she has an "out there" theory about Edward II that I don't buy; but it is interesting.

ETA: There's also the play Edward II, by Christopher Marlowe, a contemporary of Shakespeare's.

Oh! And you could also try The Three Edwards, by Thomas Costain. Highly readable non-fiction from the 50s.
