Have you ever wished that you had a bit of warning about what was going to happen in your life so that you could prepare yourself? I know that I have. At times, a heads up would have come in quite handy. Joan of England, also known as Joan of the Tower because she was born in the Tower of London got a huge heads up when she was born on the 5th in 1321. Being born in the Tower of London doesn’t suck quite as much as you might assume. At least it doesn’t when you are also the youngest daughter of King Edward II and Queen Isabella of France. Pursuant to the Treaty of Northampton, upon her birth she became engaged to marry David II of Scotland, which she did on July 17, 1328. Joan was married when she was 7 years old. My guess is that her mommy and daddy waited that long to see if she was going to survive infancy.
