Longshanks was the nickname for King Edward I of England due to his famous height. At a time when the average height was just above 5 feet, Edward stood at 6 feet 2 inches. He was married to Eleanor of Castile, by whom he had sixteen children, and Margaret of France who bore him three children before his death. His tomb can be seen in Westminster Abbey.
His other nickname was "Hammer of the Scots" but this seemed a bit politically incorrect to put on a badge.
