Edward I (17 June 1239 – 7 July 1307), popularly known as Longshanks, achieved fame as the monarch who conquered Wales and almost succeeded in doing the same to Scotland. However, his death led to the inexperienced Edward II (Edward I's son) taking the throne and ultimately failing in his attempt to subjugate Scotland. He reigned from 1272 to 1307, ascending the throne of England on 20 November 1272 after the death of his father, King Henry III. His mother was queen consort Eleanor of Provence.
