  • Notes 
    • Countess of Gloucester & Hertford. Sole mistress of estates of her son Gilbert during his minority. She controlled them with marked ability. She introduced important modifications to administration of the estate.
      Joan of Acre died in April, 1307, but during her tenure of the inheritance of Gloucester important modifications were introduced in its administrative structure. After Isabella de Fortibus, dowager countess of Devon and Aumale (1262-93), Countess Joan stands as perhaps the best example in thirteenth century English history of the ability of a widow to run the estates and otherwise manage the complex affairs of a great comital house."
