King Edward Longshanks


 


            King Edward Longshanks was one of England’s greatest kings.  His real name was Edward the 1st but he was nicknamed Longshanks because he was so tall.  Right after King Edward came to the throne he conquered Wales and made his son the Prince of Wales.  As the king he made some new laws.  The new laws that he made had a long lasting influence on later kings of England.  In 1307 King Edward Longshanks tried to lead an army towards Scotland but he died before he reached the border.  King Edward I will forever be known as perhaps the greatest king in the history of England.
