Happy Birthday, Isobel Nevill

Posted: September 5, 2010 in Isobel Nevill, Duchess of Clarence

Portrait said to be of Isobel's daughter, Margaret countess of Salisbury. Her long narrow face would seem to be a Nevill trait and may well have been shared by her mother.

Margaret of Anjou and Henry VI weren’t the only couple who had to wait a long time for the birth of their first child. The countess and earl of Warwick, after probably about 7 years actively trying to conceive, were finally rewarded on 5 September 1451 with the birth of their elder daughter Isobel. Five years later, their second daughter, Anne, was born.
