John of Eltham, Earl of Cornwall


John of Eltham, Earl of Cornwall

John of Eltham, Earl of Cornwall (August 25 1316 – September 13 1336) was the son of Edward II of England and Isabella of France.

He was born in 1316 at Eltham Palace, Kent and was created Earl of Cornwall on 6 October 1328. He was due to marry Maria, daughter of Ferdinand IV of Castile, but he died, aged 20, at Perth, before the marriage could take place. The claim by the Scottish chronicler John of Fordun that he was killed by his brother Edward III in a quarrel, is rather doubtful. He was buried in January 1337 at Westminster Abbey, London.
