Oh, there's little doubt that Edward II was Edward III's father.
Edward II was in York with Queen Isabella at the right time to
conceive him. No reason at all to think otherwise.
Edward III didn't lock his mother up in a nunnery, or at Castle
Rising. He didn't lock her up anywhere. Castle Rising was merely her
favourite residence, but she spent a lot of time travelling around her
vast estates, and visited court sometimes. She died at Hertford
Castle in August 1358.
