Edward II, historical personality with a connection to Wales (Caernarfon)

Edward II

Edward of Caernarvon (as his contemporaries knew him) was the first heir to the England and Wales throne to be styled 'Prince of Wales'. A Plantagonet, he was perhaps one of the most disliked, unsuccessful leaders England has known.
Connection: Born in Caernarfon Castle.
