One of my favourite times in English history.

Also covered by my favourite historical novel -Katherine by Anya Seton.
It is the story of a real young girl, Katherine de Roet (daughter of a Flemish squire) who becomes mistress of, and eventually marries, John of Gaunt, son of Edward III. Her sister is Phillipa, lady in waiting to Queen Phillipa and wife of Geoffrey Chaucer.

Katherine and John are the ancestors of the Lancaster line.

I like the fact that Edward III had a new balcony constructed outside Isabella's rooms at Woodstock. It is always more pleasurable to enjoy the scenery when viewed from a grand balcony.

Richard III DNA tests uncover evidence of further royal scandal | UK news | The Guardian

This is an article from last year but I just ran across it....so perhaps the Plantagenets aren't even who we thought they were...or even farther back maybe.

All that that DNA test proved was that somewhere in the 18+ generations and 500+ years there was a break in the male line - most likely in the Beauforts. There were only four generations from Edward III to Richard III (Edmund of Langely>Richard of Conisburg>Richard Duke of York>Richard III) and 18+ to the current Beauforts - who have been rumored to have had a couple of cuckoos in the nest since the 1800s. There were THREE different x-chromosomes in the Beaufort line and none of those matched Richard's... Also, the Yorkist claim to the throne was actually via Lionel of Clarence's (2nd son of Edward III) daughter and her descendants - one of whom married her York cousin (Lionel>Philippa>Roger Mortimer>Anne Mortimer m Richard of Conisburg) so it wouldn't have been affected by any break in the York line.

Richard, Duke of York, (1411-1460) married Cecily Neville. Her father had to buy Richard's marriage from the Crown, which held him in wardship. What was the monetary value of the purchase?
