  • Notes 
    • PLANTAGENET:
      Platagenet, surname, orginally a nickname of the English Royal House of Anjou or the Angevin Dynasty,
      founded by Geoffrey IV, Count of Anjou ( 1113-1151), husband of Matilda ( 1102-1167), daughter of
      King Henry I of England. The name is derived from the Latin planta ("sprig " ) and genista (" broom plant")
      that Geoffrey always wore in his cap. Reigning from 1154 to 1485, the Plantagenet Kings, in the main
      line of descent, were Henry II, Richard I, John, Henry III, Edward I, Edward II, Edward III and Richard II;
      through the House of Lancaster, Henry IV, Henry V, and Henry VI and through the House of York, Edward IV, Edward V, and Richard III.
