I went surfing on your site and read an error. Dol is NOT in Normandy but in Brittany. Brittany is a Celtic country unlike Normandy. The inhabitants still retain and speak a language closely related to Welsh and Cornish, ie a brythonic tongue. Brittany was founded by immigrants from Great Britain that settled down there in the Dark Ages. Dol was an archdiochese established by Kings Nominoe and Salomon of Brittany. Alan of Dol's family was related to the Dukes (former Kings) of Brittany. Alan was the hereditary dapifer of Dol. It's amazing that those progenitors of the Stuarts and FitzAlan families went first to Shopshire on the Welsh Border and then to Strathclyde that was still a Brythonic kingdom until the beginning of the eleventh century. It's no accident that this happened in countries sharing the same myth, ie King Arthur.

John Fitzalan died in 1272 and Arundel passed to his five year old son, Richard. In 1285 King Edward I granted the right to hold two fairs a year at Arundel and to tax the goods there. This created additional much needed cash to renovate the castle and buildings, as many had fallen into disrepair through neglect or lack of money. In 1289 Richard was created Earl of Arundel by 'Longshanks' and the two became good friends. Richard fought with the King against the Scots and he is described on the Rolls of the Siege of Caerlaverock in 1300:
 
was beheaded after getting caught up in the rebellion against Edward II. He was caught by Queen Isabella's lover, Mortimer and executed without trial in Hereford. Arundel passed to the Earl of Kent, 6th son of Edward I, but he was also beheaded when the Arundel Castle was returned to the Fitzalans 4 years later.

On December 4,1344 he obtained a Papal mandate for the annulment of his marriage to Isabel on the ground of his minority (about 8 at the time of the marriage) and that he had never consented to the marriage.
 
TheComplete Peerage discusses this and states "...Obviously what really happened was this. The powerful Earl desired to get rid of the woman to whom he had been married as a child, and who, since her father's attainder and execution, had ceased to be of any importance, that he might marry the woman with whom he was then living in adultery; and the Pope very obligingly annulled the marriage and bastardised the issue."
