Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eleanor Fitzalan (c. 1284 – July/August 1328) was an alleged daughter of Richard FitzAlan, 8th Earl of Arundel and his wife Alice of Saluzzo. She became the wife of Henry de Percy, 1st Baron Percy. Their son was Henry de Percy, 2nd Baron Percy.

Standard accounts of the Percy family identify Eleanor as the daughter of the "Earl of Arundel". Arrangements for Eleanor's marriage to Lord Percy are found in the recognizance made in 1300 by Eleanor's father, Richard, Earl of Arundel, for a debt of 2,000 marks which he owed Sir Henry Percy. Eleanor was styled as a "kinswoman" of Edward II on two separate occasions; once in 1318 and again in 1322 presumably by her descent from Amadeus IV, Count of Savoy who was the brother of Edward II's great-grandmother, Beatrice of Savoy. Eleanor's brothers, Edmund and John were also styled as "kinsmen" of the king. Eleanor's identity is further indicated by the presence of the old and new arms of FitzAlan (or Arundel) at her tomb.

Burial of Eleanor de Arundel/FitzAlan, wife of Sir Henry de Percy 1st Lord Percy

(Royal Ancestry) (Eleanor) died in July or August 1328, and was buried at Beverley, Yorkshire, where her obit was celebrated.

Alton Rogers received a letter dated July 7 2006 from Mr. P. Calvert with Beverley Minster in Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, providing information about the Percy family in that area and about the magnificent Percy shrine in Beverley Minster as well as about Eleanor, wife of Henry Percy.

The Minster has the Percy Canopy which is recognized as one of the masterpieces of English Decorated stone carving. Built between 1340 and 1349, it portrays the concern of the tomb owner for the fate of the soul after death. It is believed the person in the tomb is Eleanor, daughter of Richard Fitz Alan, Earl of Arundel, and widow of Henry Percy, first lord of Alnwick who died in 1314. Eleanor died in 1328 and arrangements for her obit at Beverley were made in 1336. Her tomb bears the arms of King Edward III which includes fleur-de-lys, adopted after 1340.

Is there a typo in Eleanor's year of birth? Her father would have been only 10 in that year.
