- Eleanor of England (18 June 1269 Windsor Castle ? 29 August 1298 Ghent), was the eldest surviving daughter of Edward I of England and his first wife, Eleanor of Castile.
For a long period she was betrothed to King Alfonso III of Aragon (d. 18 June 1291). However, Alphonso's death occurred before the marriage could take place.
Eleanor subsequently married the French nobleman, Henry III, Count of Bar in 1293, as a means of allying Bar and England against the Kings of France. Eleanor and Henry had three surviving children:
Edward I of Bar (1293-1336), comte de Bar
Eleanor (b. 1294), who married Llewelyn ap Owain
Jeanne (1295-1361), who married John de Warenne, 8th Earl of Surrey. The marriage was annulled 1315. Jeanne became regent of Bar from 1354
Eleanor pre-deceased her husband and was buried 12 October 1298 in Westminster Abbey.
