(Royal Ancestry) Mortimer's alliance with the Marcher lords and the Lancastrian faction in the Despenser wars of 1321-2 led to the seizure of his property in Jan. 1322, and his imprisonment in the Tower of London. On 1 August 1323 he escaped from the Tower (with Isabelle's help) and rode to Dover, where he embarked on a ship which was waiting to take him to France, where he was welcomed by King Charles IV, brother of Isabelle. In the spring of 1325 Isabelle crossed over to France, followed by her son, Prince Edward, who used a ruse to leave his father's observation of his activities. Roger subsequently became the Queen's advisor as well as her paramour. At the end of 1325, he and the Queen went to Flanders, where Prince Edward was affianced to Philippa of Hainault, and men and money were obtained for an attack on England. On 24 Sept. 1326 the Queen with Mortimer and their forces landed near Ipswich, and were joined by Henry, Earl of Lancaster, and other opponents of the Despensers....
As an interim measure, Edward II was held in the custody of Henry of Lancaster, who surrendered Edward's Great Seal to Isabella. The situation remained tense, however; Isabella was clearly concerned about Edward's supporters staging a counter-coup, and in November she seized the Tower of London, appointed one of her supporters as mayor and convened a council of nobles and churchmen in Wallingford to discuss the fate of Edward. The council concluded that Edward would be legally deposed and placed under house arrest for the rest of his life. This was then confirmed at the Parliament of England, dominated by Isabella and Mortimer's followers. The session was held in January 1327, with Isabella's case being led by her supporter Adam Orleton, Bishop of Hereford. Isabella's son, Prince Edward, was confirmed as Edward III, with his mother appointed regent. Isabella's position was still precarious, as the legal basis for deposing Edward was minimal[clarification needed] and many lawyers of...
Isabella's reign as regent lasted only four years, before the fragile political alliance that had brought her and Mortimer to power disintegrated. 1328 saw the marriage of Isabella's son, Edward III to Philippa of Hainault, as agreed before the invasion of 1326; the lavish ceremony was held in London to popular acclaim. Isabella and Mortimer had already begun a trend that continued over the next few years, in starting to accumulate huge wealth. With her lands restored to her, Isabella was already exceptionally rich, but she began to accumulate yet more. Within the first few weeks, Isabella had granted herself almost £12,000; finding that Edward's royal treasury contained £60,000, a rapid period of celebratory spending then ensued. Isabella soon awarded herself another £20,000, allegedly to pay off foreign debts. At Prince Edward's coronation, Isabella then extended her land holdings from a value of £4,400 each year to the huge sum of £13,333, making her one of the largest landowners...
Edward and Isabella did manage to produce four children, and she suffered at least one miscarriage. Their itineraries demonstrate that they were together 9 months prior to the births of all four surviving offspring. Their children were: 1. Edward III of Windsor, born 1312 2. John of Eltham, Earl of Cornwall, born 1316 3. Eleanor of Woodstock, born 1318, married Reinoud II of Guelders 4. Joan of the Tower, born 1321, married David II of Scotland
(Royal Tombs of Medieval England) Isabelle died on 22 August 1358 but it was not until 20 November that instructions were given for the streets of the city of London to be cleaned in preparation for the arrival of the queen's body, which appears to have lodged for some time with the king's household at a private house in Mile End. Isabelle was buried in the (Grey Friars) Franciscan church at Newgate (London) on 27 November, apparently in her wedding dress, together with a silver casket containing Edward II's heart. According to John of Reading, Isabelle had originally instructed for her burial at Westminster, but had been persuaded otherwise by the Franciscans. The Newgate church had been refounded by another French queen of England, Margaret of France (d.1317), whose tomb stood before the high altar. Isabelle was a leading patron of the friary, being a popular mausoleum for female aristocrats. Isabelle's tomb stood in the middle of the choir to the west of Margaret of France and ha...

This led to a local tradition that the queen was buried there, but the slab most likely marked her heart burial.
