      Was not popular in England, partly because of her arrogance but chiefly because the favors shown by the king to her relatives from abroad were a serious financial drain on the country. In July 1276, two years after Henry's death, she became a nun at Amesbury. Had great influence over her husband and the life-long affection of her eldest son Edward I. (Encyclopedia Americana).
