    Isabella of France, Queen of England

    Isabella of France - one of history's most famous femme fatales, Edward II's French queen famously overthrew her husband with the aid of her lover, Roger Mortimer, in 1326. After her son, Edward, wrested back power, Mortimer was executed, but Isabella was allowed to live.

    The Pope granted a dispensation for John "Lackland" Plantagenet (John I) to marry his first wife, Isabella of Gloucester, as they were both great-grandchildren of Henry I. Their marriage was annulled in 1199, and Isabel never became queen. John went on to marry Isabella of Angouleme.
