On June 28th, 1462, on behalf of Henry VI, Queen Margaret signed a treaty of peace with France, providing for a hundred year truce and barring all Englishmen from entering France unless they were certified true subjects of King Henry.

Henry IV marked his coronation by instituting a new order of chivalry, the Order of Bath, and his four sons were its first members.

I actually read that novel mentioned in the article, The First Princess of Wales. I was always interested in Joan of Kent since she was a character in Anya Seton's wonderful novel, Katherine. I didn't realized that Joan was a Plantagenet and had such a colorful history.

Pity that her burial site at Greyfriars, Stamford in in Lincolnshire, England was not saved from destruction in 1538 during the suppression of that Friary

Oh, darn it! No chance of her skeleton being discovered as another historic find.

Philippa of Hainault's betrothal gift to Edward III was a compilation of Latin and French prayers and romances, including a translation of a pseudo-Aristotelian text. The text was De Secretis Secretorum.

In 1443 Rene, Duke of Anjou, sent his daughter Margaret to live with her aunt, Queen Marie, at the French court.
Margaret spent a year at the French court.
The Burgundian chronicler Barante wrote:

There was no princess in Christendom more accomplished than my lady Margaret of Anjou. She was already renowned in France for her beauty and wit and her lofty spirit of courage.

The King's College of Our Lady and St. Nicholas at the University of Cambridge was founded in 1441 by Henry VI.
King's College was built for the for the further education of 70 scholars from Eton College. Henry had founded Eton College in 1440.

I'm reading the sunne in splendor now. Don't know if I'm going to be able to finish it. I have such a problem with Margaret d'Anjou and I really shouldn't. She was defending her husband and her sons rights. But I still feel the War of the Roses is her fault, her and Henry IV.

I hope you do finish Sunne in Splendour, Xenia, I find that one of the best novels in the Plantagenet saga and it gives such a good, sensitive portrayal of Richard III. Margaret d'Anjou isn't a sympathetic character, true, but she was fighting for the rights of both her husband and son and while she comes across as a driven and cruel woman, she certainly had her reasons. If Henry VI had been capable of maintaining his hold on the throne and didn't have his periods of mental incapacity, he'd have never been deposed by the York faction and the Cousins' War wouldn't have started. The same can be said of Richard II being deposed by the Lancastrian Henry IV.

Geoffrey, Duke of Brittany (1158-1186), the son of King Henry II, was a good friend of Prince Philippe of France.
Geoffrey spent much time at Philippe's court in Paris.
Philippe made Geoffrey his seneschal.
In the French administrative system of the Middle Ages, the seneschal was a royal officer in charge of justice and control of the administration in southern provinces.

So can it be said that Lancaster won the War of the Roses, or do you consider both sides won in the end?

I would consider that both sides lost and both sides won. Henry VII was the Lancastrian heir, in a manner, but he wasn't technically a Lancaster. Elizabeth of York was not the York heir due to her gender, but her son (Henry VIII) would have been had he been born during the lifetime of either of Elizabeth's brothers.

Many considered Elizabeth to be the rightful York heiress barred from her gender from ruling, but she was crowned Queen Consort and it was considered somewhat of a triumph by the York supporters that she did sit on the throne. She actually strengthened Henry's claim to the throne, too, though he delayed her coronation by several years to accustom the public to seeing just him on the throne as the rightful ruler. Both sides did win with the merging of the both royal houses as well.

Sorry to disagree; I have a more sombre look on wars - for me, both sides and the country lost during the war of the roses. By chance alone Henry Tudor outlived the other claimants and was a strong enought personality to rule. His claim on the throne was weak - He got his claim from the battlefields; an tiny bit from his mother and a hug lot from his wife.
