“The rich tapestry of the windows in Lincoln's Cathedral inspired my Wings of an Angel Baron. The way the light dances around and bounces off the various surfaces all influenced my design; along with the Cathedral's many hidden secrets.” - Louise Jardine
Geoffrey de Mandeville
Geoffrey de Mandeville was 2nd Earl of Essex and 4th Earl of Gloucester. His first wife died childless. He married Isabel of Gloucester after her marriage to King John was annulled and had to pay the king a huge sum of money for the privilege. He died from an accident whilst participating in a tournament with a French knight in London in February 1216. He was buried in Holy Trinity Priory, London and was succeeded by his brother.

We are very proud to be sponsoring a Lincoln baron, as we like to celebrate all that is great about the city of Lincoln and the county of Lincolnshire. The 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, being the seed for democracy around the world, reminds us all that Lincoln has played an important role in history, which we can all be proud of. The barons project shows what wonderful talent is here now, helping to build a similarly illustrious future.
