Abstract

The Mortimers of Wigmore, important lords on the Welsh March since 1066, also held land in Ireland after 1247, and their stake in the lordship increased dramatically from the middle of the fourteenth century. This was unusual in a period that saw a decline in transnational lordship within the British Isles and the Plantagenet empire. Understanding how the Mortimers came to be in this position, and what use they made of it, helps to reveal the ways in which the realms of the kings of England in the late Middle Ages were held together.
