Death of Eleanor of Castile

Archaeologia Volume 29 Section XIII. The corpse (age 49) was opened and embalmed. The heart was reserved to be deposited, probably at her own desire, in the church of the Friars Predicants in London. What else was removed was interred in the chapel of the Blessed Virgin in the Minster at Lincoln [Map]. Writs are found tested by the King (age 51) at Lincoln on the 2nd and 3rd of December. On the 5th they are tested at Casterton, which is on the road from Grantham to Stamford; on the 9th at Northampton; on the 13th at Saint Alban's and London. It is manifest, therefore, that the funeral procession, in which the King was personally present, must have set out very soon after the death. It would seem that the body was taken from Hardby to Lincoln, and that the procession set out from Lincoln on the morning of the 4th.

On 28 Nov 1290 Eleanor of Castile Queen Consort England (age 49) died at Harby Manor. Her viscera were buried at Lincoln Cathedral [Map].

Archaeologia Volume 29 Section XIII. The Queen (age 49) died of a lingering disease, a slow fever. Wikes says, "modicz febris igniculo contabescensd [of fever burning with fire]." We see therefore why the more quiet situation of Harby Manor should be chosen for her rather than Clipston, where the Court and Parliament were to be held. I have not seen any positive evidence respecting the time when the Queen first took up her abode at this obscure place. The latest date at which I find the King and Queen together is late in the month of August, when a certain sum was paid to a messenger for carrying joint letters of the King and Queen from Northampton to the Earl of Gloucester. On the 18th of October 13s. 4d. was paid to Henry de Montepessulano for syrops and other medicines bought for the Queen's use at Lincoln. In that interval I conclude she was placed at Hardby, and probably about the 11th of September, when it appears the King was there.

Note d. Gale, p. 121. Wikes states that she died at Grantham. It is difficult to account for positive assertions like this in writers who are in the main deserving of credit. Langtoft says, That ilk sere pe quene died in Lyndseie. (p. 248.)

This is worth notice, as assisting to determine the ancient limits of the district called Lindsey.

Archaeologia Volume 29 Section XIII. It appears from two circumstances that the Queen's (age 49) death took place in the evening. First her anniversary was celebrated on the eve of the feast of Saint Andrew, which according to the ordinary mode of calculation would be the 29th of November; while the King's letter to the Abbot of Clugni, published in the Foedera, which is by far the most authoritative evidence for the day of her death, states that she died on the 4th of the kalends of December, which would be the 28th of Novemberf; but if the ecclesiastical day is to be reckoned from evening to evening, then the eve of Saint Andrew would include the evening of the 28th. Secondly, there are writs tested on the 28th, as if public business was transacted on the morning of that day. Then public business for a time ceased. No writs are found tested on the 29th or 30th, or on the 1st day of December.

It may be worth observing how differently the precise day of the Queen's death is stated by different writers:

Matthew of Westminster and the Annals of Dunstable, 5 kal. Dec. November 27. Thomas Wikes, 4 kal. Dec. November 28.

Walsingham and Trivet, 4 id. Dec. December 10.

Holinshed, Saint Andrew's Even.

Stowe, November 28.

Gough in the Vetusta Monumenta, November 20.

This list of diseordances may serve to shew how errors will creep in, and how vain it is to expect the highest conceivable accuracy in the multitude of minute statements of historical writers. There is a general aceuracy quite consistent with occasional slight deviations, and honest and honourable men know how to jadge of them.

Eleanor Crosses

After 28 Nov 1290 Eleanor of Castile's (age 49) body was taken from Harby, Nottinghamshire [Map] to Westminster Abbey [Map].

On 18 Jun 1318 Eleanor of Woodstock Plantagenet was born to [her son] King Edward II of England (age 34) and Isabella of France Queen Consort England (age 23) at Woodstock Palace, Oxfordshire [Map]. She was named for her paternal grandmother Eleanor of Castile. Coefficient of inbreeding 2.16%.

Effigy of Eleanor, Queen of Edward the First. ELEANOR, Queen of Edward the First, was the daughter of Ferdinand the Third, King of Castile, and only child of his second wifea, Joan, daughter and heiress of John Earl of Ponthieu. She was married to him at Bures, in Spain, in 1254, and accompanied him to the Holy Land, where she is said to have preserved his life by sucking the poison out of a wound inflicted on him by the hand of an assassin. She bore him four sons and nine daughters, and died in attending him on an expedition towards Scotland, 27th November, 1290, at the house of Richard Weston, at Herdby, or Harby [Map], in the parish of North Clifton on the Trent, five miles from Lincoln. Her bowels were burieda in Lincoln Cathedral [Map], and her body was conveyed for interment to the Abbey Church at Westminster. At every stage where it rested the King ordered a Cross to be placed. Fifteen are enumerated as having been erected in consequence. One at Herdby, whence the procession set out; and in the chapel of which place Edward also founded a chantry for her soul. The others at Lincoln, Newark [Map], Grantham [Map], Leicester [Map], Stamford [Map], Geddington [Map], Northampton, Stony Stratford [Map], Woburn, Dunstable [Map], St. Albans, Waltham, Cheapside (London), and at the village of Charing [Map], near the Minster where she was to be entombed. Herdby, Leicester, Woburn, and Cheap, are omitted by some authorities. These Crosses were adorned with statues of the Queen. Those at Geddington, Northampton, and Waltham are extant at this day. In gothic niches in the upper part have been female figures, very similar in style to that on her tomb; on the lower, shields charged with arms of England, Castile and León Arms, and Ponthieu Arms. Edward caused a monument to be erected to her memory near that of his father in the Confessor's Chapel, in Westminster Abbey, on which is placed her recumbent image of copper; and round the verge of the tomb the following inscription, in uncial letters:

ICY GYST ALIANOR IADIS REYNE DE ANGLETERRE, FEMME AL RE EDEWERD FtZ LE RE. OVNTIF DEL ALME DE LI DEV PVR SA PITE EYT MERCI. AMEN.

Sandford informs us that on a tablet of wood, hanging near her monument by an iron chain, were the following verses in Latin:

Nobilis Hispani jacet hie soror inclita regis, [A Spanish noblewoman lies here, the sister of a famous king]

Eximii consors Aleanora thori, [A great companion of Aleanora ?]

Edwardi primi Wallorum principis uxor, [The wife of Edward the First, Prince of Wales]

Cui pater Henricus tertius Anglus erat; [His father, Henry the Third, was an Englishman]

Hanc illi uxorem gnato petit; online princeps [He asks her to marry him; ? leader]

Legati munus suscipit ipse bono: [He himself undertakes the office of ambassador in good faith]Alphonso fratri placuit felix Hymeneus;

Germanam Edwardo nec sine dote dedit, [Not given to Edward without a dowry]

Dos preciara fuit nec tali indigna marito, [The gift was precious and not unworthy of such a husband]

Pontivo princeps munere dives erat; [? was rich in the role of prince]

Feminaconsilio prudens, pia, proie beata, [A prudent, pious, blessed woman]

Auxit amicitiis, auxit honore virum: [Who increased friendships, increasing the honor of his husband]

Disce niori. [Learn more]

Note a. In a tomb bearing her effigy of brass gilt, similar to that in Westminster Abbey, but destroyed in the Civil wars. On it was the following inscription:

HIC * SVNT * SEPVLTA * VICERA * ALIANORE * QVONDAM * REGINE * VXORIS * REGIS * EDVARDI * FILII * REGIS * HENRICI * CVIVS * ANIME * PROPICTETVR * DEVS * AMEN * PATER * NOSTER *

[Here in this sepulchre are buried the viscera of Queen Eleanor wife of King Edward I son of King Henry whose soul we give to God Amen Our Father]

Archaeologia Volume 29 Section XIII. On the Death of Eleanor of Castile, Consort of King Edward the First, and the Honours paid to her Memory. By the Rev. Joseph Hunter, F.S.2.

Read 11th March, 1841.

THE Society has already published, in the third volume of the Vetusta Monumenta, engravings of the three Crosses which alone remain of the twelve that were erected by the King in memory of his Queen. An historical discourse is also there given on the circumstances under which these beautiful structures were erected, the work of Mr. Gough, assisted by Sir Henry Englefield. This discourse contains nearly everything which was then known on the subject, and has been the source from whence later accounts have been derived. What I now propose to do is to make some material additions to what was then known on the subject, and to correct some important misconceptions; and, in doing this, to make some small addition to the knowledge we possess concerning the arts and artists of the period, and particularly to assert for England, against Walpole and others, the claim of having produced by the hands of native artists most of the beautiful works of sculpture and architecture which are connected with the name and memory of this Queen.
