Joan of England, Queen Consort of Scotland

Joan of England, Queen Consort of Scotland (July 22, 1210March 4, 1238) was the eldest legitimate daughter and third child of John of England and 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 June 21,1221, at York Minster [Agnes Mure Mackenzie, "The Foundations of Scotland" (1957), p. 251.] . Alexander was 23. Joan was 11. They had no children. Joan died in her brother's arms at Havering-atte-Bower in 1238, and was buried at Tarant Crawford Abbey in Dorset [Mackenzie, p. 260.] .

Nothing now remains of this church; the last mention of it is before the Reformation.
