Based in Wigmore (Herefordshire) the Mortimer family were one of the great Marcher families protecting the border between England and Wales.

Roger Mortimer, 01 Earl March, became the lover of Isabella of France, Edward II's estranged wife. They, Isabella and Roger, invaded England on 23 Nov 1316 having obtained assistance from Count William of Hainault. The price of that assistance was the marriage of Edward II and Isabella's son Edward (the future Edward III of England) to Phillipa of Hainault. The invasion being successful Roger and Isabella usurped Edward II, imprisoning him at Berkeley Castle where he subsequently died.

Roger went to entrap King Edward I's youngest son Edmund of Woodstock (10 Earl of Kent) resulting in Edmund's execution; the murder of a Royal Prince regarded as a most terrible crime. Roger was, therefore, responsible for the death of two of Edward I's sons.

Mortimer was subsequently captured by the seventeen year old Edward III at Nottingham Castle. He was hanged at Tyburn being regarded as a common criminal.

Despite Roger Mortimer's execution the family continued to be prominent.

Roger Mortimer 02 Earl March was one of the founder members of the Knights of the Garter. His son Edmund married Philippa, daughter of Lionel (01 Duke of Clarence), Edward III's eldest son. The consequences of this marriage were far reaching since Richard of Conisborough, founder of the House of York, claimed this descent from Edward gave the House of York precedence over the House of Lancaster.
