  • Notes 
    • Descent from the English Crown- On July 6th, 1189, with four of his children deceased, Henry II, very bitter and disppointed with life, died at Chinon while making war on France. --------------------- Harris Descent From Norman and English Royal Lines- Henry II 1154-1189 founder of line of Plantaganets, married Eleanor of Aquitain. Descent From the English Crown - Henry II 1133--1189 King of England, 1st Plantagenet King, a son of the Princess Matilda and her husband, Count Geoffrey IV, Plantagenet, of Anjou, was born in LeMans, France, March 25, 1133. He married in 1152 to Eleanor of Aquatain, 1122-1203, divorced wife of King Louis VII, France, was crowned King Henry II of England in 1154. He wished to be a good King and rule his subjects well, desiring to carry out the progressive reforms of his grandfather, Henry I, and expand upon them. It was during his rule that the English Parliment was actually formed and workable Courts established. He was somewhat disappointed, however, for his reign was much like the kings before him, filled with fueds, unrest, corruption and war. His wife and sons rebelled against him causing him much woe and grief. Five sons and three daughters were born to Henry II and wife, Eleanor (herein). --------------------- Ephraim Blood Line. Plantagenet is the surname of an Angevin house which in 1154 succeeded with Henry II, to the crown of England. Henry was the son of Geoffrey, by Matilda, only daughter of Henry I, this house reigning from 1154 until 1485. He was born in France. The name was adopted by Jeoffrey, Count of Anjoy, husband of Matilda, from the badge of a sprig of broom (plantagenista) which he wore in his bonnet. Fourteen Kings of this house ruled in Great Britain. --Other Fields Ref Number: 3352 Ref: Plantagenet Ancestry - Discoveries and Major Changes- Alice of France, fiancee of King Richard I and mistress of his father, King Henry II, historians and genealogists have alternatively assigned two different women as her birth mother. New evidence secured from medieval France sources proves conclusively that Alice was the daughter of Constance of Castile, 2ne wife of King Louis VII of France. ----------------------- largest in England, Windsor Castle is one of the principal residences of the queen and covers nearly thirteen acres. The first castle on the site was set up by William the Conqueror in about 1070. Windsor is the only royal castle that has been in continuous occupation since the Middle Ages and is the largest inhabited castle in the world. Almost every century from the 12th. to the 19th. left its mark on this great fortress. Windsor was on of the first sites chosen by William the Conqueror for the series of fortifications built to protect his new conquest after 1066. It was one of a ring of nine castles built by him around London. William picked a superb site, a chalk outcrop rising to 30 meters (100feet) above the Thames River and commanding splendid views over the countryside for miles around. The early castle was almost certainly built of wood Windsor began very much more simply than that. It was a motte with two baileys (one on each side) - and an aerial view today instantly reveals this plan under all the succeeding stonework. It was raised by the Conqueror in 1067 by scarping a mound out of a chalk cliff beside the Thames. It remained a wood and earth structure until Henry I began to convert the castle to stone by erecting a stone shell enclosure on the motte top (although there is a suggestion that this had already been done earlier). Windsor began very much more simply than that. It was a motte with two baileys (one on each side) - and an aerial view today instantly reveals this plan under all the succeeding stonework. It was raised by the Conqueror in 1067 by scarping a mound out of a chalk cliff beside the Thames. It remained a wood and earth structure until Henry I began to convert the castle to stone by erecting a stone shell enclosure on the motte top (although there is a suggestion that this had already been done earlier). Henry II raised the building in the upper bailey on a quadrangular plan like Old Sarum. Some of the stone was obtained from quarries at Totternhoe in Bedfordshire. The shell was later refaced, probably in Henry II's time. Inside the shell, a large, slightly oval great tower was erected, with walls about 30.5 meters (100 ft) in diameter, 1.5 meters (5 ft) thick (later thickened), with pilaster buttresses some of the way up. The first height was about 10.7 meters (35 ft). The shell acted as a kind of surrounding base for the great tower. Inside the tower, timber buildings were put up against the walls, leaving a square courtyard in the center. This was much as it is today and the two-storied, oak-framed buildings contain timberwork thought to have come from the Henry II structures. The tower has been much altered, and today stands nearly 20 meters (65 ft) above the height of the old shell enclosure. Henry II favored Windsor and treated it as a royal home, planting a herb garden and possibly a vineyard. Henry III also favored Windsor and there is a record of an occasion when he gave the poor a meal on Good Friday. Edward II's extensive improvements included the first chapel of St George, and raising the height of the oval great tower. By the end of his reign, Windsor had become a palace and was no longer a real military structure. Henry the II built the spacious new royal apartments in the 12th. century. There are still visible traces of this apartments in the basement of the present ones. Henry II built this castle to improve its defenses he began on an outer wall with towers on the line of the original ramparts, and much of it still stands. King John, in 1194, rebelled against his brother King Richard I while he was out of the country. Nobles loyal to the king besieged the castle but failed to take it Windsor was besieged in 1216, during the Magna Carta war, but the castle withstood the siege, but it was extensively damaged. The damage was repaired during Henry III. Windsor Castle's vast complex of palatial apartments, its huge and glorious chapel of St George, its towers, its enormous cylindrical shell enclosure, and its curtain wall with towers and gates, extending over half a mile in a rough figure-of eight plan. Although much has been added and altered since the end of the Middle Ages, notably by Henry VIII, George III and George IV, it still resembles to a great extent the Windsor Castle seen by medieval visitors, official and private, travelers native and foreign. And by that time it had ceased to have any military significance, had already cost more than any other castle in the British Isles - over was spent by Edward III alone, between c.1350 and c.1377 and it had become the principal residence of the kings of England and Wales. Edward IV began to build what is still Windsor's crowning glory, and one of medieval architecture, St. George's Chapel. It was not completed until the reign Henry VII in 1528, when the beautiful fan vaulted roof was finished. Henry VIII also was responsible for the building of the main castle entrance, which bears his name. DEATH: Also shown as Died Chinon, Indre, France.
