Plantagenet, Lancaster and York Family Tree
The House of Plantagenet
John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, c 1593, by an unknown artist.
Garsington Manor, a Tudor era manor house in Oxfordshire, England. There are no adequate words to vivify my love for an English garden.
Monarchs like Henry VII (who united the house of York and Lancaster in 1485) justified their reign and lineage through the most grounded and respectable figure British history had to offer--King Arthur. ALSO the slander of all things Plantagenet..starting with Richard III.
