King Edward was styled as, "Rex Angliae, Dominus Hiberniae, et Dux Aquitaniae."
Edward was crowned by Robert Kilwardby, Archbishop of Canterbury.
The Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey was made for Edward in 1299.
Edward's left eyelid drooped slightly, which he inherited from his father Henry III. He also spoke with a slight stammer.
Edward was the most well-travelled king since Richard I, going on crusade (from 1270 to 1274) before he became king, and travelling through Italy on his way home.
Like many Plantagenet kings, Edward occasionally displayed a bad temper. He is said to have thrown his daughter Elizabeth's coronet into the fire at her wedding; the privy purse account read, "to make good a ruby and an emerald lost out of the coronet, when the King's grace was pleased to throw it behind the fire." At another wedding, he supposedly hit one of his squires on the head so severely that he paid L13 6s 8d in settlement.
Throughout his life, Edward was known for his luck. When he was a boy, he leaped up from a chess game with his knights; seconds later, a large stone fell from the ceiling, exactly where Edward had been sitting.
