About Roger Bigod, 4th Earl of Norfolk

Roger Bigod, 4th Earl of Norfolk

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Bigod,_4th_Earl_of_Norfolk

Roger Bigod (c. 1209 – 1270), was 4th Earl of Norfolk and Marshal of England.

He was the eldest son and heir of Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk (1182-1225) by his wife Matilda, a daughter of William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1147-1219), Marshal of England. His younger brother was Hugh Bigod (1211-1266), Justiciar. After the death of his father in 1225, the young Roger became the ward of William Longespée, 3rd Earl of Salisbury.

In 1228, although still under-age but by now married and in a second wardship to the William the Lion, King of Scotland, he succeeded to his father's estates including Framlingham Castle. He did not, however, receive his father's title until 1233.

After the death without male heirs of the last of his mother's brothers, in 1246 Roger inherited the office of Marshal of England. Together with his younger brother Hugh Bigod (1211-1266), Justiciar, he was prominent among the barons who wrested control of government from the hands of King Henry III and assisted Simon de Montfort in the Second Barons' War.

His first warder married him to Isabella of Scotland, daughter of William the Lion, King of Scotland, whereupon still under-age he became a ward of his new brother-in-law, Alexander II of Scotland until 1228.

Roger had no children, and was succeeded by his nephew Roger Bigod, 5th Earl of Norfolk (1245-1306).
