Richard II, Isabella, and King Charles VI of France, Isabella's father. Richard was 22 to Isabella's mere 6 years. The marriage was political, but Richard also had personal reasons for marrying a child. He was still in love with his dead first wife and wanted to end the nagging of his advisers to take a new wife and sire children. He never consummated the marriage with Isabella and acted more like a big brother to her until he was deposed by Henry VI.
