Description

Details

Edward, commonly called the Black Prince, eldest son of Edward Ill and Queen Philippa, was born at Woodstock, on the 15th of June, 1330,4th Edward Ill.
Before he had attained his seventh year, the King, his father, granted to him the County of Chester, the Castles of Chester, Beeston, RhyddIan, Flint, &c., and created him Duke of Cornwall. In the 17th Edward Ill. was invested with a coronet, a gold ring, and a silver rod, as Prince of Wales.

Three years after, in 1346, being then but sixteen years old, this valiant Prince fought and gained the battle of Cressy; and continued distinguishing himself in military achievements, till he won the field of Poitiers with 8 or 9,000 English against 60,000 French, taking John, King of France, prisoner: this battle was fought September 19th, 1356.

In 1362, King Edward invested his gallant son with the Principality of Aquitaine.* Here he did not long remain inactive; for Peter the Cruel, King of Spain, having been driven from his dominions, the Prince of Wales espoused his cause, passed with an army into Spain, and gained the battle of Najara, by which he restored an ungrateful Prince to a throne he had but too justly forfeited.

Peter the Cruel once more reigning in his dominions, evaded paying the sums he had promised to the English Prince; who in order to discharge the expenses incurred by the war, had recourse to levying taxes in Aquitaine, which furnished a pretext for revolt in that province. In the midst of these difficulties, the Black Prince died of a slow and lingering disorder, which first seized him in Spain; he expired on Trinity Sunday, in the Palace at Westminster, June 8th, 1376, aged 46.
