Edward I was the King of England from 1272 to 1307, and was also known as ‘Edward Longshanks’ and the ‘Hammer of the Scots’. He was a successful king, a skilled military leader and fearsome warrior, who emerged as one of the greatest Plantagenet kings. Edward I was the eldest son of King Henry III; he inherited the fiery temper of his father. After getting married as a teenager to Eleanor of Castile as part of a political alliance, he acquired the lands of Gascony and spent a year there, studying its administration. Even though, Edward initially sided with the rebels, soon he returned to his father, took charge of the kingdom in his own hands and became Simon de Montfort's greatest enemy. After defeating Simon, he relentlessly pursued the surviving members of the de Montfort family, who were his cousins. Later, upon ascending the throne after his father’s death, he fought Llywelyn ap Gruffyd and his brother, quickly defeating them. He strengthened the crown and Parliament against the old feudal nobility. He subdued Wales, destroyed its autonomy and also made an unsuccessful attempt to conquer Scotland. His reign is particularly remembered for administrative efficiency and legal reform. He was an intimidating man who often instilled fear in his contemporaries and even though he earned the respect as a soldier and an administrator, many historians criticize him for his uncompromising attitude towards his nobility
