  • Notes 
    • Edmund was a supporter of his first cousin once removed, Henry Bolingbroke, despite having a better claim to the throne of England (Edmund's grandfather was Edward III's third son, while Bolingbroke's father (John of Gaunt) was Edward's fourth son). Edmund fought for Bolingbroke until captured by the Welsh rebel, Owain Glyndwr in battle. When Henry proved slow to ransom Mortimer, Glyndwr won his allegiance. Mortimer married Glyndwr's daughter Katherine (Catrin) in 1402, and they are believed to have had at least four children. Glyndwr and Mortimer plotted with Henry Percy, "Hotspur," to depose Henry IV and divide the kingdom of England and Wales in three. However, at some time during the siege of Owen's stronghold of Harlech by Henry, Prince of Wales, Mortimer died, possibly of plague. Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edmund_Mortimer"
