House Of Plantagenet
The HOUSE OF PLANTAGENET (/plænˈtædʒᵻnᵻt/ ) was a royal house which originated from the lands of Anjou
Anjou
in France. The name Plantagenet is used by modern historians to identify four distinct royal houses – the Angevins who were also Counts of Anjou, the main body of the Plantagenets following the loss of Anjou, and the houses of Lancaster and York , the Plantagenets' two cadet branches . The family held the English throne from 1154, with the accession of Henry II , until 1485, when Richard III died. Under the Plantagenets, England was transformed, although this was only partly intentional. The Plantagenet kings were often forced to negotiate compromises such as Magna Carta
Magna Carta
. These constrained royal power in return for financial and military support. The king was no longer just the most powerful man in the nation, holding the prerogative of judgement, feudal tribute and warfare
