Accession to English throne
25 Jan 1327
1 Feb 1327
Westminster Abbey, London, England
King Edward was styled as, "Rex Angliae, Dominus Hiberniae, et Dux Aquitaniae," until 1340 when he assumed the style, "Dei Gratia, Rex Angliae et Franciae et Dominus Hiberniae," to emphasize his claim to the throne of France, through his mother Queen Isabel.
Edward was declared Keeper of the Realm on 26 October 1326.
Edward was crowned by Walter Reynolds, Archbishop of Canterbury.
Edward founded the Order of the Garter in 1348.
When Edward rebuilt Windsor Castle, construction was so extensive that chroniclers record that nobody else in England could employ a mason, at any cost.
Edward spent 300 pounds on his wife Philippa's tomb, making the monument one of the most expensive in the Abbey.
Edward's tomb in Westminster Abbey originally featured carvings of all his children (some of which are still there). Some art historians have called Edward's effigy the first English portrait.
Portrayed by Jody Graber in the 1991 film, "Edward II."
