The Despenser Family





My first two novels feature members of the Despenser family, which suffered from several revolutions of Fortune's Wheel before the male line died out in the early fifteenth century. Here is some more information
about the various members of this fascinating, often ill-fated family (keep checking for updates):


Hugh the Justiciar

Hugh le Despenser the Younger

The Other Hugh le Despenser (d. 1349)

Edward le Despenser

Gilbert le Despenser

Three Little Nuns (Joan, Eleanor, and Margaret le Despenser)

Divorce, Medieval Style (Isabel le Despenser)

Elizabeth le Despenser
