Philippa of Hainault was the daughter of Count William of Hainault and French Princess Joan of Valois.
King Edward III of England married Philippa at York Minster in York, England on January 24, 1328.
The church of York Minster was still being built and had no roof.
There's a pub near here (we're nowhere near Norwich, but Flemish weavers settled in other areas too) called The Flemish Weaver :-) . A few pubs around the country have that name, going right back to the arrival of Flemish weavers in the 14th century.
Philippa of Hainault mother was Jeanne de Valois a granddaughter of Philippe III of France and later sister of Philippe IV of France. Another of her cousins was Isabella de France the infamous queen of Edward II.
Jeanne as the mother in law of the English and sister of the French one often acted as Royal Peace maker between the English and French.
Jeanne died in 1352 at the Abbey of Fontenelle and her burial presumed lost was rediscovered archaeological excavations at the abbey ruins and were reburied in 2001 at the local Parish church of Saint-Gery.
