Long cross with three pellets in each angle, legend around CIVI TAS CAN TOR. Edward was born in 1284 as the fourth son of Edward I at Caernarvon Castle in Wales and was the first English prince to be given the title Prince of Wales. Indeed, his nickname was Edward of Caernarvon, but it could have been much worse. He is considered to one of England's most woeful kings, by his days standards he was, where military ability and violent pastimes, like jousting, were expected to be excelled at. Despite his homosexuality, he managed to father four children with Isabella of France; she was later to despise him and become an opponent.As a weak king he lost power to the Barons, was defeated by Robert the Bruce at Bannockburn and with everyone finally against him, he was deposed, imprisoned in January 1327 and died in the October in mysterious circumstances. Tales of an awful death by red-hot poker or hot coals inserted into the anus, have never been substantiated and contemporary chronicles indeed, make no mention of how he died, but great myths stick, and this is how he is remembered!

Very slight traces of wear, all parts of legend etc present, visible and clear.Some signs of wear on the higher parts of the relief, all parts of legend etc present, but maybe worn.
