Ros Tapestry - Free Jigsaw Download

We recently looked at the Ros Tapestry which is to be found in Wexford, Ireland. Here is one of the paintings for a panel of this fabulous embroidery which depicts the marriage of Isabel de Clare and William Marshal at Stoke d'Abernon in Surrey. The couple are supported by two of William's friends - Gilbert Pipart and Engerrand de Abernon. Above the bride and bridegroom can be seen a smaller vignette showing the marriage of Isabel's mother - Aoife - to Richard de Clare which legitimised William's claim to the province of Leinster. Though Isabel was just 18 and William nearly 50, the couple were happily married and Isabel bore 5 sons and 5 daughters. It was the daughters who inherited as the sons all died without issue.
