p22: "There is a disagreement among authorities as to the number of child- ren presented to Edward by his queen, some saying fifteen, others claiming a total of seventeen. On one pointthere is accord, however. Only four of the children were sons. Of the eleven or thirteen daughters, as the case may be, a number died in their infancy and nothing is known about them, not even their names. With those who lingered just long enough to acquire names, there has been little statistical recognition. Let us pick out one at random from the long list: Eleanor, Joanna, Margaret, Berengaria, Mary, Elizabeth, Alice, Blanche, Beatrice, Katherine...
"This much is well established, that all the royal children shared the Plantagenet beauty. Some of the daughters were blond and blue-eyed, some were cast in the duskier mold of Castile...
"Edward loved all his daughters devotedly, but he must have looked them overwith an uneasy eye. Daughters made poor successors to a throne as contentious as that of England."
