With the growing influence of Piers Gaveston, the favorite of King Edward, Guy of Warwick sided with Lancaster in demanding his exile, just like the old King wanted. Edward, in an effort to punish one of his most powerful nobles, took the guardianship of his two sons, Thomas and John, and sent his daughter to the Abbey of Fontevrault. Two years later, Eleanor is still at Fontevrault Abbey, with increasing pressures to take the veil. She hopes to be recalled to England where her father and brothers reside.
