a. Note:   Geoffrey of Anjou Count of Anjou, Geoffrey The Fair Plantagenet, Duke of Normandy Geoffrey IV From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Geoffrey V (August 24, 1113 - September 7, 1151), Count of Anjou and Mai ne (province of France), and later Duke of Normandy, called "Geoffrey t he Fair" or "Geoffrey Plantagenet", was the father of King Henry II of Eng land,and thus the forefather of the Plantagenet dynasty of English kings. Geoffrey was the son of Fulk V, Count of Anjou and King of Jerusalem. Geof frey's mother was Eremburg of La Fl�eche, heiress of Maine. Geoffrey himse lf Nicknamed for the sprig of broom (= gen�et plant, in French) he wo re in his hat as a badge. At Le Mans, Maine, at the age of 15 he married M atilda (Maud of England), the daughter and heiress of King Henry I of Engl and, by his first wife, Maud of Scotland (herself daughter of Malcolm I II Canmore and St. Margaret of Scotland) and widow of Henry IV, Holy Rom an Emperor. The marriage, on June 17, 1128, was meant to seal a peace betw een England/Normandy and Anjou. She was eleven years older than Geoffre y, and their marriage was a stormy one, but she survived him. The year after the marriage Geoffrey's father left for Jerusalem (whe re he was to become king), leaving Geoffrey behind as count of Anjou. Wh en King Henry I died in 1135, Matilda at once entered Normandy to claim h er inheritance. The border districts submitted to her, but England chose h er cousin Stephen of Blois for its king, and Normandy soon followed sui t. The following year, Geoffrey gave Ambrieres, Gorron, and Chatilon-sur-C olmont to Juhel de Mayenne, on condition that he help obtain the inheritan ce of Geoffrey�us wife. In 1139 Matilda landed in England with 140 knight s, where she was beseiged at Arundel Castle by King Stephen. In the "Anarc hy" which ensued, Stephen was captured at Lincoln in February, 1141, and i mprisoned at Bristol. A legatine council of the English church held at Win chester in April 1141 declared Stephen deposed and proclaimed Maud �SLa dy of the English. Stephen was subsequently released from prison and had h imself recrowned on the anniversary of his first coronation. During 1142 and 1143, Geoffrey secured all of Normandy west and south of t he Seine, and, on 14 January, 1444, he crossed the Seine and entered Roue n. He assumed the title of Duke of Normandy in the summer of 1144. In 114 4, he founded an Augustine priory at Chateau-l�uErmitage in Anjou. Geoffr ey held the duchy until 1149, when he and Matilda conjointly ceded it to t heir son, Henry, which cession was formally ratified by King Louis V II of France the following year. Geoffrey also put down three baronial reb ellions in Anjou, in 1129, 1135, and 1145-1151. The threat of rebellion sl owed his progress in Normandy, and is one reason he could not interve ne in England. In 1153, the Treaty of Westminster allowed Stephen should r emain King of England for life and that Henry, the son of Geoffrey and Mat ilda should succeed him. At Chateau-du-Loir, Geoffrey died, still a you ng man. He was buried at St. Julien�us in Le Mans France. Geoffrey and Mati lda had two other sons, Geoffrey, and William. Geoffrey also had illegitim ate children by an unknown mistress (or mistresses): Hamelin de Warenne; E mme, who married Dafydd Ab Owain, Prince (or King) of North Wales; and Mar y, (1181-1216) who became a nun and Abbess of Shaftesbury. The first refer ence to Norman heraldry was in 1128, when Henry I of England knighted h is son-in-law Geoffrey and granted him a badge of gold lions (or leopard s) on a blue background. (A gold lion may already have been Henry�us own ba dge.) Henry II used two gold lions and two lions on a red background are s till part of the arms of Normandy. Henry's son, Richard I, added a third l ion to distinguish the arms of England.

RESEARCH NOTES: Count of Anjou [Ref: Weis AR7 #1, Weis AR7 #123, Holloway WENTWORTH p8, Weis AR7 #118, ES III.2 #355, ES I.1 #12, Paget HRHCharles p60] Duke of Normandy [Ref: Weis AR7 #1, Weis AR7 #123, Holloway WENTWORTH p8, Weis AR7 #118, ES I.1 #12] 1129: Count of Anjou [Ref: ES I.1 #12] 1129-1151: Count of Anjou [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p204] 1144: Duke of Normandy [Ref: ES I.1 #12] 1144-1150: Duke of Normandy [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p203] The friends of Geoffrey were unaware that their playful nickname for him of Plantagenet would live through the years. The story is told that while disguised in battle, and to make himself known to his followers, he leaned from his horse and grasped a sprig of "plante de genet," the common broom corn which grew thickly on the heath, and thrust it in his helmet. Thus he derived his popular title. [Ref: Wurts MCBarons p200] It is much to be wished that the surname "plantagenet," which since the time of Charles II has been freely given to all the descendants of Geoffrey of Anjou, had some historical basis which wuld justify its use, for it forms a most convenient method of referring to the Edwardian kings and their numerous descendants. The fact is, however, as has been pointed out by Sir James Ramsay and other writers of our day, that the name, although a personal emblem of the aforesaid Geoffrey, was never borne by any of his descendants before Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York (father of Edward IV), who assumed it, apparently about 1448 [Ref: CP I p183] ENCYCLOP�DIA BRITANNICA , Vol. 10, Page 135 GEOFFREY, surnamed Plantagenet (or Plantagenet) (1113-1351), count of Anjou, was the son of Count Fulk the Young and Eremburge (or Arembourg) of La Fleche; he was born on August 24, 1113. He is also called �tle bel" or "the handsome" and received the surname Plantagenet from the habit which he is said to have had of wearing in his cap a sprig of broom (genet). He married (June 20, 1129) Matilda, daughter of Henry I of England, and widow of the emperor Henry V. He died on Sept 7, 1151, and was buried in the cathedral of Le Mans. By his wife Matilda he had three sons: Henry Plantagenet (Henry II), Geoffrey and William. ENCYCLOP�DIA BRITANNICA , Vol 1, Page 993, Anjou In 1127 a new alliance was made (between Fulk and Henry I], and on May 22, at Rouen, Henry I betrothed his daughter Matilda (widow of the emperor Henry V) to Geoffrey Plantagenet, or the Handsome, Fulk's son, the marriage being celebrated at Le Mans on June 2, 1129. Shortly after, on the invitation of Baldwin II, king of Jerusalem, Fulk departed to the Holy Land, married Melisinda, Baldwin's daughter and heiress, and succeeded to the throne of Jerusalem (Sept 14, 1331). His eldest son, Geoffrey IV or Plantagenet, succeeded him as count of Anjou (1129-51). From the first Geoffrey tried to profit by his marriage, and after the death of Henry I (Dec 1, 1135), laid the foundation of the conquest of Normandy by a series of campaigns: about he end of 1135 or the beginning of 1136 he entered that country and rejoined his wife, the countess Matilda, who had received the submission of Argentan, Domfront and Exmes. Recalled into Anjou by a revolt of his barons, he returned to the charge in Sept 1136 with a strong army, but after a few successes was wounded in the foot at the siege of Le Sap (Oct. 1) an had to fall back. In May 1137 began a fresh campaign in which he devastated the district of Hiemois (round Exmes) and burnt Bazoches. In June 1138, with the aid of Robert of Gloucester, Geoffrey obtained the submission of Bayeux and Caen; in October he devastated the neighbourhood of Falaise; finally in March 1141, on hearing of his wife's success in England, he again entered Normandy. Many towns surrendered; in 1144 he entered Rouen, and received the ducal crown in the cathedral. Finally in 1149, after crushing a last attempt at revolt, he handed over the duchy to his son Henry (later Henry II of England], who received the investments at the hands of the king of France.
