High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Joan of England (22
July 1210 - 4 March 1238) was Queen consort of Scotland from 1221
until 1238. Joan was the eldest legitimate daughter and third child
of King John of England and Countess Isabella of Angouleme. Joan
was brought up in the court of Hugh X of Lusignan who was promised
to her in marriage from an early age, as compensation for him being
jilted by her mother Isabella of Angouleme, however on the death of
John of England, Isabella decided she should marry him herself and
Joan was sent back to England, where negotiations for her hand with
Alexander II of Scotland were taking place. She and Alexander
married on 21 June 1221, at York Minster. Alexander was
twenty-three. Joan was ten, almost eleven. They had no children.
Joan died in her brother's arms at Havering-atte-Bower in 1238, and
was buried at Tarrant Crawford Abbey in Dorset. Nothing now remains
of this church; the last mention of it is before the Reformation.
