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, 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?

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.

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.

Myths about Margaret of Anjou

One of King Edward IV's priorities in his early years on the throne was to repay the debts owed by the Crown to the merchants and Italian banks. By the end of his reign he had repaid debts totaling 97,000 pounds.

On October 16, 1460 Prince Edward, Duke of York (future King Edward IV) formally claimed the crown of England by right of inheritance. He then submitted to the Lords in Parliament a genealogy showing his descent from King Henry III.
Why had Edward not put forward his claim before?

During a violent storm at sea on his return from the Crusades, Prince Edward, later King Edward I of England, vowed that on his return he would found an abbey in the county of Cheshire, of which he was the Royal Earl. The abbey was founded in 1277 in what Edward declared to be Vale Royal.

In March 1296 King Edward I led an army of 25,000 men north to Berwick. Infuriated by Scotland's alliance with France in 1295, Edward now wanted to conquer rather than just control Scotland. :bang::bang:

King Henry V had an extensive library. He enjoyed books on history, theology and hunting, as well as the works of Chaucer, Hoccleve, and Lydgate.

During King Edward IV's reign, The Black Book of the Household was drawn up. The book described the rights and duties of all members of the royal household. King Edward had the book compiled so economies would be imposed and wastefulness would be curbed.

Eleanor of Castile tried to make her lodgings cheerful with colorful candles, Venetian glass, ivory mirrors, and brightly painted walls.
