Edmund of Woodstock (1301-1330) m. Margaret Wake (-1349) , children: 1. Thomas de Holland.
King of England 1272-1307.
He won influence and fame suppressing the baronial revolt (1263-5) against his father, Henry III, and crusading (1270-72). Succeeding his father (1272), he carried out important administrative, judicial, and financial reforms, which increased royal power and weakened feudalism. By summoning frequent parliaments and including commoners in them, he contributed greatly to Parliament's development. Edward conquered Wales and incorporated it into England (1275-95). Although he also conquered Scotland in 1296, the remainder of his reign was occupied with Scottish revolts. [Random House Encyc.]
Working to build the power of the crown over independent local nobles, he notably increased the importance of the royal courts. With Abbot Suger of St. Denis as his advisor, he worked closely with the church. He began a war (1104) against King Henry I of England, duke of Normandy, a struggle that was to continue intermittently for centuries. Before his death he arranged the marriage of his son, Louis VII, and Eleanor, daughter of teh duke of Aquitaine. [Random House Encyc]
He enlarged his kingdom and fought repeatedly with the kings of England, William I and II, who as dukes of Normandy were technically his vassals. For his illegal marriages to Bertrada de Montfort (both were already married), he was excommunicated by Pope Urban II, but restored on the understanding (openly disregarded) that he have no further converse with her. [Random house Encyc.]
R.G.Adams says of him: "Alfred was one of the greatest men in history. He was crowned king at Winchester, 871; founded the British Navy, organized the militia, compiled a code of laws, built schools and monasteries, and invited scholars to live at his court. He was a good scholar and translated many books.
