When Isabel Marshal Countess of Hertford Countess of Hertford Countess of Hertford was born on 9 October 1200, in Pembroke, Pembrokeshire, Wales, United Kingdom, her father, Sir William Marshal - First Earl of Pembroke, Knights Templar, was 54 and her mother, Isabel de Clare - Fourth Countess of Pembroke, was 28. She married Gilbert de Clare on 9 October 1217. They were the parents of at least 3 sons and 6 daughters. She died on 17 January 1240, in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom, at the age of 39, and was buried in Beaulieu Abbey, Beaulieu, Hampshire, England.
Originally a Spanish version of Elizabeth , which was coined by deletion of the first syllable and alteration of the final consonant sound to one that can normally end a word in Spanish. The name was imported into France in the early Middle Ages, and thence into England. It was a royal name, and its enduring popularity may have been enhanced by the fact that it was borne by a queen of England— Isabella ( 1296–1358 ), daughter of Philip IV of France—even though she led a turbulent life and eventually had her husband, Edward II , murdered.
