    4. I believe that her enemy was Hugh Despenser the younger who became Edward II’s lover. I’m not sure what she was doing at the time of his death at Bannockburn. She and Mortimer were responsible for the death of Hugh Despenser the elder as he was executed, hacked to pieces and his body fed to the dogs after the seige of Bristol
