The following chart is a family tree of the Dukes of Norfolk, who were members of the Plantagenet, Mowbray and Howard families. It shows how every Duke of Norfolk was a descendant of King Edward I of England. Note: Edward II was the issue of Edward I's first marriage to Eleanor of Castile, (1241-1290), not of his second marriage to Marguerite of France.
The Dacre Beasts, made in England, 1507-25 (source). These heraldic sculptures were made for Lord Thomas Dacre, and were displayed in the Hall at Naworth Castle. The animals stand over 6 ft tall (over 11ft with the banners), and were carved from a single large oak. Following a fire at the castle in the mid 19th century, the sculptures were repainted and the present staves and banners added.
