- Death and Burial of Isabelle of Angouleme
Isabella was betrothed to Hugh IX de Lusignan when John met her in 1200. John needed an heir and was covetous of the county of Angouleme. John brushed aside Hugh's protests and married Isabella, an act which brought on war with King Phillip of France (perhaps Phillip used this event as a pretext). Some have said that it was John's idle dalliance with Isabella which caused John to lose his French territories, however, one historian relates that "...John was quite capable of losing them without her assistance." After John's death in 1215, Isabella went to France where in 1220 she married Hugh X de Lusignan, son of her previous betrothed.
(Royal Tombs of Medieval England) Isabelle was a daughter of Aymer, Count of Angouleme, and Alice Courtenay, she marrying John of England in 1200. Following John's death in 1216, she married Hugh de Lusignan, Count of Poitou, to whom she had earlier been betrothed. In 1243 Isabelle was accused of plotting the death of Louis IX of France, and retired to Fontevrault Abbey, where she died in 1246. Isabelle was originally buried in the nuns' cemetery, but in 1254 her body was reinterred in the presence of her son, Henry III, near the other royal tombs in the Fontevrault choir. Henry had earlier founded a chantry for his mother in his new abbey choir in Westminster, endowed with a modest yearly income. Raymond of Toulouse (d.1249), Isabelle's son with Hugh de Lusignan, was also buried at Fontevrault."Royal Ancestry" 2013 Vol. I. p. 43-44 and 58"Royal Ancestry" Douglas Richardson, 2013 Vol. V. p. 310
