edward ii who did the packing when he moved

Actually, it's a little-known fact that Edward II made Isabella do all of the packing when he moved. Gaveston, and later Hugh le Despenser the younger, just sat and twiddled their thumbs while poor Isabella did all of the work. So here you have it, folks--the real reason Edward II was deposed. If only he'd hired professional movers.

Thanks, all! Yes, some novelist will soon be writing a heart-rending scene of Isabella packing while Edward and Gaveston abandon her!
