Plantagenet: Plantagenet of Cornwall, Plantagenet of England, Plantagenet of Normandy, Longespee Plantagenet of Salisbury, Plantagenet de Warenne of Surrey
|The first to official use of "Plantagenet" as a family name was by Richard, 3rd Duke of York, about 1448. Plantagenet, the shrub plante called broom genisteae. The progenitor of the family, Geoffrey, Count of Anjou, liked to wear a sprig of "plantagenet" in his bonnet as a personal emblem when he called for Maud, the "Empress" and Henry's sole survivng heir, to escort her from Germany back to England. Tradition has it that she called him by this distinguishing sign "de Plantagenet" in her Norman French, probably just to kid him, as she probably did their children, so the name was unofficially used forever after.||
It is really something to sing and dance about.
|Pl26 Geoffrey V "Plantagenet", Count of Anjou, Duke of Normandy b 23.08.1113, d 07.09.1151|
|m. Matilda or Maud, 'The Empress', Queen of England b 1102, d 10.09.1167/69, dau of Henry I 'Beauclerc', King of England was the firstborn of two children to Henry I of England and his wife Matilda of Scotland also known as Edith. Her maternal grandparents were Malcolm III of Scotland and Saint Margaret of Scotland. Margaret was daughter of Edward the Exile and granddaughter of Edmund II of England. Most historians believe Matilda was born at Winchester, but one, John Fletcher 1990, considers the possibility of the royal palace at Sutton Courtenay in Oxfordshire.||When she was seven years old, Matilda was betrothed to Henry V, Holy Roman Emperor; at nine, she was sent to Germany to begin training for the life of Empress consort. The royal couple were married at Worms on January 7, 1114, and Matilda accompanied her husband on tours to Rome and Tuscany. It is even believed that after a time, the young wife of the Emperor acted as regent in his absence. Emperor Henry died in 1125. The imperial couple had no surviving offspring, but Hermann of Tournai maintains that Matilda bore a son who lived only a short while.||Despite being popularly known by the title "Empress" from her first
marriage, Matilda's right to the title was dubious. She was never crowned
Holy Roman Empress by a legitimate Pope — which ceremony was normally required
to achieve the title; indeed, in later years she encouraged chroniclers
to believe she had been crowned by the Pope. Contemporarily, she was called
German Queen by her husband's bishops, while her formal title was recorded
as "Queen of the Romans". Still, "Empress" was arguably an appropriate
courtesy title for the wife of an Emperor who had been crowned by the Pope.
In 1120 her brother William Adelin was drowned in the disastrous wreck of the White Ship, which left Matilda as the only legitimate child of her father King Henry. Like Matilda, her cousin Stephen of Blois was a grandchild of William the Conqueror of Normandy; but her paternal line gave her seniority in right of succession over his maternal line.
|Matilda returned to England a young widow, age 23, and dowager "Empress"
— a status of considerable pride to her. There Henry named her his heir
to both the English throne and his Duchy of Normandy. Henry saw to it that
the Anglo-Norman barons including Stephen of Blois were sworn several times
to accept Matilda as ruler if Henry died without a male heir.
Henry then arranged a second marriage for Matilda; as he aimed to achieve peace between the fractious barons of Normandy and Anjou. On 17 June 1128, the Empress Matilda, age 26, was married to Geoffrey of Anjou, a man eleven years her junior, who also was Count of Maine and heir apparent to his father the Count of Anjou — which title he soon acquired, and by which Matilda became Countess of Anjou. Matilda called Geaoffrey "Plantagenet" from the broom flower planta genista which he had adopted as his personal emblem. So Plantagenet became the dynastic name of that powerful line of English kings who descended from Matilda and Geoffrey.
|Matilda's marriage with Geoffrey was troubled; there were frequent
long separations, but they had three sons and she survived him. The eldest
son, Henry, was born on 5 March 1133. In 1134, she nearly died in childbirth,
following the birth of her second son Geoffrey, Count of Nantes. A third
son William X, Count of Poitou was born in 1136.
When her father died in Normandy, on 1 December 1135, Matilda was with her husband, in Anjou; and, crucially, too far away from events rapidly unfolding in England and Normandy. Stephen of Blois rushed to England upon learning of Henry's death; in London he moved quickly to grasp the crown of England from its legally appointed heir. He usurped the legitimate power in England and was proceeding to do the same in Normandy.
But Matilda was game to contest Stephen in both realms; she and her husband Geoffrey entered Normandy and began military campaigns to claim her inheritance. Progress was uneven at first, but she persevered; even so, it was not until 1139 that Matilda felt secure enough in Normandy to turn her attentions to invading England and fighting Stephen directly.
In Normandy, Geoffrey secured all fiefdoms west and south of the Seine by 1143; in January 1144, he crossed the Seine and took Rouen without resistance. He assumed the title Duke of Normandy, and Matilda became Duchess of Normandy. Geoffrey and Matilda held the duchy conjointly until 1149, then ceded it to their son, Henry, which event was soon ratified by King Louis VII of France.
|On the death of her father, Henry I, in 1135, Matilda expected to succeed
to the throne of England, but her cousin, Stephen of Blois, a nephew of
Henry I, usurped the throne with the support of most of the barons, breaking
the oath he had previously made to defend her rights. The civil war which
followed was bitter and prolonged, with neither side gaining the ascendancy
for long, but it was not until 1139 that Matilda could command the military
strength necessary to challenge Stephen within his own realm. Stephen's
wife, the Countess of Boulogne who was also named Matilda, was the Empress's
maternal cousin. During the war, Matilda's most loyal and capable supporter
was her illegitimate half-brother, Robert of Gloucester.
Matilda's greatest triumph came in April 1141, when her forces defeated and captured King Stephen at the Battle of Lincoln. He was made a prisoner and effectively deposed.
|Her advantage lasted only a few months. When she marched on London, the city was ready to welcome her and support a coronation. However, she refused the citizens' request to have their taxes halved. On 24 June 1141, she found the gates of London shut and the civil war reignited. By November, Stephen was free, having been exchanged for the captured Robert of Gloucester, Matilda's half-brother, and a year later, the tables were turned when Matilda was besieged at Oxford but escaped to Wallingford, supposedly by fleeing across the snow-covered land in a white cape. In 1141 she had escaped Devizes in a similarly clever manner, by disguising herself as a corpse and being carried out for burial. In 1148, Matilda and Henry returned to Normandy, following the death of Robert of Gloucester, and the reconquest of that county by her husband. Upon their arrival, Geoffrey turned Normandy over to his son, and retired to his own county of Anjou.||Not all hope was lost. Matilda's first son, Henry, was showing signs
of becoming a successful leader. Although the civil war had been decided
in Stephen's favour, his reign was troubled. In 1153, the death of his
son Eustace, combined with the arrival of a military expedition led by
Henry, led him to acknowledge the latter as his heir by the Treaty of Wallingford.
Matilda retired to Rouen in Normandy during her last years, where she maintained her own court and presided over the government of the duchy in the absence of Henry. She intervened in the quarrels between her eldest son Henry and her second son Geoffrey, but peace between the brothers was brief. Geoffrey rebelled against Henry twice before his sudden death in 1158. Relations between Henry and his youngest brother, William X, Count of Poitou, were more cordial, and William was given vast estates in England. Archbishop Thomas Becket refused to allow William to marry the Countess of Surrey and the young man fled to Matilda's court at Rouen. William, who was his mother's favourite child, died there in January 1164, reportedly of disappointment and sorrow. She attempted to mediate in the quarrel between her son Henry and Becket, but was unsuccessful.
|Although she gave up hope of being crowned in 1141, her name always preceded that of her son Henry, even after he became king. Matilda died at Notre Dame du Pré near Rouen and was buried in the Abbey church of Bec-Hellouin, Normandy. Her body was transferred to the Rouen Cathedral in 1847; her epitaph reads: "Great by Birth, Greater by Marriage, Greatest in her Offspring: Here lies Matilda, the daughter, wife, and mother of Henry."|

b 23.09.1158, d 1186 Geoffrey was fifteen years old when he joined the
first revolt against his father, and was later reconciled to Henry in 1174,
when he participated in the truce at Gisors when Richard was absent and
later, when Richard reconciled at a place between Tours and Amboise. Geoffrey
prominently figured in the second revolt of 1183, fighting against Richard,
on behalf of Henry the Young King.
Geoffrey was a good friend of Philip Augustus of France, and the two statesmen were frequently in alliance against King Henry. Geoffrey spent much time at Philip's court in Paris, and Philip made him his seneschal. There is evidence to suggest that Geoffrey was planning another rebellion with Philip's help during his final period in Paris in the summer of 1186. As a participant in so many rebellions against his father, Geoffrey acquired a reputation for treachery. Gerald of Wales said the following of him: He has more aloes than honey in him; his tongue is smoother than oil; his sweet and persuasive eloquence has enabled him to dissolve the firmest alliances and his powers of language to throw two kingdoms into confusion.
Geoffrey also was known to attack monasteries and churches in order to raise funds for his campaigns. This lack of reverence for religion earned him the displeasure of the Church and also of the majority of chroniclers who were to write the definitive accounts of his life.Geoffrey died on 19 August 1186, at the age of twenty-eight, in Paris. There are two versions of his death. The more common first version, is that he was trampled to death in a jousting tournament. At his funeral, a grief-stricken Philip was said to have attempted jumping into the coffin. Roger of Hoveden's chronicle is the source of this version; the detail of Philip's hysterical grief is from Gerald of Wales.
In the second version, in the chronicle of the French Royal clerk Rigord, Geoffrey died of sudden acute abdominal pain, which reportedly struck immediately after his speech to Philip, boasting his intention to lay Normandy to waste. Possibly, this version was an invention of its chronicler; sudden illness being God's judgement of an ungrateful son plotting rebellion against his father, and for his irreligiosity. Alternatively, the tournament story may be an invention, by Philip, to prevent Henry II's discovery of a plot; inventing a social reason, a tournament, for Geoffrey's being in Paris, Philip obscured their meeting's true purpose. Geoffrey was buried at Notre Dame Cathedral.

|Pl21||Joan Plantagenet 'of Acre' b 1272, d 07/23.04.1307 was a daughter of King Edward I of England and his first wife, Eleanor of Castile 1241-1290 and horse breeder. Born on the Ninth Crusade||Joan got her name from her birthplace, Acre, in Kingdom of Acre. It
differentiates her from an earlier Joan born to the couple, who died in
infancy. Joan of Acre was born while her Royal parents were traveling to
the Middle East on the Ninth Crusade.
At least part of her childhood she spent in France with her maternal grandmother, Jeanne de Dammartin, Countess of Ponthieu. She was betrothed as a child to Hartman, son of King Rudolph I of Germany, but he died in 1281 after drowning in the Rhine.
Marriage & Issue
On 30 April 1290, at Westminster Abbey, Joan married Gilbert de Clare, 7th Earl of Hertford. He was nearly thirty years her senior.
Following her husband's death in 1295, Joan clandestinely married Ralph de Monthermer, 1st Baron Monthermer, a knight in her household, in January 1297. Her father, King Edward I, was enraged by this lowly second marriage, especially since he was arranging a marriage for her to Amadeus V, Count of Savoy.
He had Monthermer thrown in prison, and Joan had to plead for the release of her husband. According to the St. Albans chronicler, she told her father, "No one sees anything wrong if a great Earl marries a poor and lowly woman. Why should there be anything wrong if a countess marries a young and promising man?" At last her father relented, released Monthermer from prison in August 1297, and allowed him to hold the title of Earl of Gloucester and Earl of Hereford during Joan's lifetime.
Joan died in childbirth on 7 April 1307 at the manor of Clare in Suffolk, England, a Clare family possession, and was buried with her stillborn child, 23 April 1307, at the Augustinian priory there. Miracles were said to occur at her grave, especially the healing of toothache, back pain, and fever. A fifteenth-century English chronicle reports that when her tomb was opened a century and more after her death, her body was found incorrupt, which was seen in the medieval period as a strong indication of sanctity. So far as is known, however, no process for her sanctification was ever undertaken.

|It has been alleged that Edward was not son of the Duke of York but was his mother's bastard, having been conceived when the Duke was away on a military campaign. This is thought to have been part of the reason why Edward's sons, 'the Princes in the Tower', were murdered. After Edward's brother & successor King Richard III had been killed at Bosworth, the crown passed through Edward's daughter Elizabeth into the Tudor family, thereby ending the Wars of the Roses. Had Richard won at Bosworth and not had an heir, Edward may not have been accepted as legitimate and the succession would probably then have passed through their niece Margaret Plantagenet who was married after Bosworth to Sir Richard Pole.|

|Pl21-9||Joan b c1335, d 1348 was the daughter of King Edward III
of England and his Queen, Philippa of Hainault. Joan, also
known as Joanna, was born perhaps in February of 1333 in the Tower of London.
As a child she was put in the care of Marie de St Pol, wife of Aymer de Valence, who was the foundress of Pembroke College, Cambridge. She grew up together with her sister Isabella, her brother Edward and their cousin Joan of Kent.
In 1338 Joan was taken on her father's travel to Coblence, where they met Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor, and were his special guests at the Imperial Diet in the church of Saint Castor. Edward III had formed an alliance with him against Philip VI of France, but in 1341 the emperor deserted him.
It is possible that Joan had been betrothed to one of the sons Louis had with his wife Margaret of Holland, Philippa's older sister, and actually stayed in their court to be educated there. However, Edward III withdrew her in 1340.
In 1345 she was betrothed to Pedro of Castile, son of Alphonso XI of Castile and Maria of Portugal.
In early August of 1348 Joan left England with the blessing of her parents, and thanks to a heavily armed retinue she was, perhaps, the most protected woman of Europe in those days. It is said that her trousseau alone required an entire ship, and the travel schedule included a visit to a castle of her family in Bordeaux.
Edward III spared no expense in the preparation of Joan's journey, equipping her in the most impressive and wonderful way he could. The King loved his daughter, but it's very likely that he also wanted to make a display of power and wealth toward his allies in Castile.
The fleet that carried the Princess and her retinue consisted of four English ships, which departed from Portsmouth and were received in Bordeaux by the awestruck mayor Raymond de Bisquale. Some say that he immediately warned Joan and her companions about the danger of the Plague, but they didn't listen and proceeded to settle in the royal castle overlooking the estuary of the Gironde.
Joan's entourage included three leading officials: Robert Bouchier, the former royal chancellor; Andrew Ullford, a diplomatic lawyer; and the cathedral priest of Bordeaux, Gerald de Podio, who was to take care of the Princess's spiritual needs. Joan also had a remarkable Castilian minstrel, Gracias de Gyvill, who had been dispatched to England by Prince Pedro in order to entertain her with music and songs of the land of which she was to be Queen.
The Princess was protected by over a hundred formidable English bowmen, some of them veterans of the Battle of Crecy, and she even traveled with a luxurious portable chapel so she could enjoy Catholic services without having to use the local churches all along the way to Castile.
Joan's wedding dress was made with more than 150 meters of rakematiz, a thick imported silk, but she also had a suit of red velvet, five corsets woven with gold patterns of stars, crescents and diamonds and at least two elaborate dresses with an inbuilt corset.
As Princess Joan embarked on her journey to Castile, the Black Death had not taken hold of England yet and it is unlikely that they were aware of the dangers that lay ahead. Joan and her retinue were travelling into the center of a tragedy the likes of which Europe had never seen, and arrows and walls would not be enough to save her.
Despite the severe outbreak that was taking place in Bordeaux, at first it did not occur to Joan and her advisors to get out of town. Very soon she watched in horror as the members of her entourage began falling sick and dying, and Robert Bouchier, the main leader of the retinue, died on August 20th of the Plague.
Joan feared for her life, and was moved probably to a small village called Loremo where she remained for some time. However, they could not escape the disease and Joan was its first victim in the camp, suffering a violent and quick attack of the Black Death and dying on September 2nd, 1348, never reaching Castile and leaving her family in sorrow and fear.
Some accounts document that Joan was buried in Bayonne Cathedral, and her statue, in Westminster Abbey, is on the South Side of her father's tomb.
Joan's death sent shockwaves back home. Not only was she one of the earliest English victims of the Plague, but her death seemed to prove that even royalty was not going to be spared this deadly affliction.
Andrew Ullford, the diplomatic lawyer, was not affected by the Plague and very soon he took off for England, in order to inform the King what had occurred. He did so in October, and the royal family, horrified, realized the true danger of the disease that had already started to attack their kingdom.
On October 15, 1348, Edward III sent a letter to King Alfonso of Castile terminating the marriage arrangements and describing the sorrow that he and his family were suffering after the sudden and tragic death of the Princess. He described Joan as a martyred angel looking down from Heaven to protect the royal family, and concluded with traditional and formal piety:
"We have placed our trust in God and our life between his hands, where he held it closely through many dangers"
On October 25, Edward III sent an expedition to Bordeaux that was supposed to find the body of Joan and bring it back for burial in London. The leader was a northern ecclesiastical lord, the bishop of Carlisle, who was overpaid by the King because of the terrible risk involved.
It is unknown what happened next. There is no record of Joan's remains being returned to England, nor any account of a funeral of any kind. Joan was taken away by the Plague and turned into a legend, and it has been suggested that her death, which prevented the dynastic union between England and Castile, altered the course of the Hundred Years' War and changed European history for centuries to come.
Here is part of the letter that King Edward III sent to King Alfonso of Castile, as translated by Rosemary Horrox in her book The Black Death:
"We are sure that your Magnificence knows how, after much complicated negotiation about the intended marriage of the renowned Prince Pedro, your eldest son, and our most beloved daughter Joan, which was designed to nurture perpetual peace and create an indissoluble union between our Royal Houses, we sent our said daughter to Bordeaux, en route for your territories in Spain. But see, with what intense bitterness of heart we have to tell you this, destructive Death who seizes young and old alike, sparing no one and reducing rich and poor to the same level has lamentably snatched from both of us our dearest daughter, whom we loved best of all, as her virtues demanded"
"No fellow human being could be surprised if we were inwardly desolated by the sting of this bitter grief, for we are humans too. But we, who have placed our trust in God and our Life between his hands, where he has held it closely through many great dangers, we give thanks to him that one of our own family, free of all stain, whom we have loved with our life, has been sent ahead to Heaven to reign among the choirs of virgins, where she can gladly intercede for our offenses before God Himself"

He received many marks of favour from his brother, whom he steadily supported until the last act in Edward’s life opened in 1326. He fought in Scotland and then in France and was a member of the council when Edward III became king in 1327. Soon at variance with Queen Isabella and her lover, Roger Mortimer, Edmund was involved in a conspiracy to restore Edward II, who he was led to believe was still alive he had been murdered in September 1327; Edmund was arrested and beheaded. Although he had been condemned as a traitor, his elder son Edmund c. 1327–33 was recognized as earl of Kent in December 1330, the title passing on his death to his brother John c. 1330–52.

Plantagenet, Earl of Cornwall, King of the Romans b 05.01.1209, d 02.04.1272
He was born on January 5, 1209 at Winchester Castle, the second son of
King John and Isabella of Angoulême. He was made High Sheriff of
Berkshire at the age of only eight, was styled Count of Poitou from 1225
and in the same year, at the age of sixteen, his brother King Henry gave
him Cornwall as a birthday present. Richard's revenues from Cornwall provided
him with great wealth, and he became one of the wealthiest men in Europe.
Though he campaigned on King Henry's behalf in Poitou and Brittany, and
served as Regent three times, relations were often strained between the
brothers in the early years of Henry's reign. Richard rebelled against
him three times, and had to be bought off with lavish gifts.
In March 1231 he married Isabel Marshal, the wealthy widow of the Earl of Gloucester, much to the displeasure of his brother King Henry, who feared the Marshal family because they were rich, influential, and often opposed him. Richard became stepfather to Isabel's six children from her first husband. In that same year he acquired his main residence, Wallingford Castle in Berkshire now Oxfordshire, and spent much money on developing it. He had other favoured properties at Marlow and Cippenham in Buckinghamshire. Isabel and Richard had four children, of whom only their son, Henry of Almain, survived to adulthood. Richard opposed Simon de Montfort, and rose in rebellion in 1238 to protest against the marriage of his sister, Eleanor, to Simon. Once again he was placated with rich gifts.
When Isabel was on her deathbed in 1240, she asked to be buried next to her first husband at Tewkesbury, but Richard had her interred at Beaulieu Abbey instead. As a pious gesture, however, he sent her heart to Tewkesbury. Later that year Richard departed for the Holy Land. He fought in no battles but managed to negotiate for the release of prisoners and the burials of Crusaders killed at a battle in Gaza in 1239. He also refortified Ascalon, which had been demolished by Saladin. On his return from the Holy Land, Richard visited his sister Isabella, the empress of Frederick II. Shortly after his return on January 28, 1242, King Henry and his wife Eleanor brought up the idea of a marriage with Eleanor's sister Sanchia. On his journey to the Holy Land, Richard had met her in the Provence, where he was warmly welcomed by her father Raymond Berenger V and had fallen in love with this beautiful girl. Richard and Sanchia whom the English called Cynthia married at Westminster in November 1243. This marriage tied him even more closely to the royal party.
Richard's claims to Gascony and Poitou were never more than nominal, and in 1241 King Louis IX of France invested his own brother Alphonse with Poitou. Moreover, Richard and Henry's mother, Isabella of Angouleme, claimed to have been insulted by the French king. They were encouraged to recover Poitou by their stepfather, Hugh X of Lusignan, but the expedition turned into a military fiasco after Lusignan betrayed them.
The pope offered Richard the crown of Sicily, but according to Matthew Paris he responded to the extortionate price by saying, "You might as well say, 'I make you a present of the moon - step up to the sky and take it down'." Instead, his brother King Henry purchased the kingdom for his own son Edmund.
Although Richard was elected in 1256 as King of Germany by four of the seven German Electoral Princes Cologne, Mainz, the Palatinate and Bohemia, his candidacy was opposed by Alfonso X of Castile who was elected by Saxony, Brandenburg and Trier. The pope and king Louis IX of France favoured Alfonso, but both were ultimately convinced by the powerful relatives of Richard's sister in law, Eleanor of Provence, to support Richard. Ottokar II of Bohemia, who at first voted for Richard but later elected Alfonso, eventually agreed to support the earl of Cornwall, thus establishing the required simple majority. So Richard only had to bribe four of them, but this came at a huge cost of 28,000 marks! On May 27, 1257 the archbishop of Cologne himself crowned Richard "King of the Romans" in Aachen . However, like his lordships in Gascony and Poitou, his title never held much significance, and he made only four brief visits to Germany between 1257 and 1269.
He founded Burnham Abbey in Buckinghamshire in 1263, and the Grashaus, Aachen in 1266.
He joined King Henry in fighting against Simon de Montfort's rebels in the Second Barons' War 1264–67. After the shattering royalist defeat at the Battle of Lewes, Richard took refuge in a windmill, was discovered, and imprisoned until September 1265.
In December 1271 he had a stroke. His right side was paralyzed and he lost the ability to speak. On 2 April 1272, Richard died at Berkhamsted Castle in Hertfordshire. He was buried next to his second wife Sanchia of Provence and Henry of Almain, his son by his first wife, at Hailes Abbey, which he had founded.
After his death, a power struggle ensued in Germany, which only ended in 1273 by the emergence of a new Roman King, Rudolph I of Habsburg, the first scion of a long lasting noble family to rule the empire. In Cornwall, Richard was succeeded by Edmund, son of his second wife Sanchia.

Joan was brought up in the court of Hugh X of Lusignan who was promised to her in marriage from an early age, as compensation for him being jilted by her mother Isabella of Angouleme, however on the death of John of England, Isabella decided she should marry him herself and Joan was sent back to England, where negotiations for her hand with Alexander II of Scotland were taking place.
She and Alexander married on 21 June 1221, at York Minster. Alexander was 23. Joan was 11. They had no children. Joan died in her brother's arms at Havering-atte-Bower in 1238, and was buried at Tarant Crawford Abbey in Dorset.

Plantagenet b c1188, d 04.03.1237 was an illegitimate daughter of King
John of England and a woman named Clemence Pinel. She should not be
confused with her legitimate half-sister Joan, Queen Consort of Scotland.
Little is known about her early life; she was possibly born before her father, King John of England, married his first wife in 1189. Her mother's name is known only from Joan's obituary in the Tewkesbury Annals, where she is mysteriously called "Regina Clementina" Queen Clemence. Joan seems to have spent her childhood in France, as King John had her brought to the Kingdom of England from Normandy in preparation for her wedding in December 1203 at 15 years of age or so.

|Pl24-8||Joan Plantagenet b 1165, d 04.09.1199 was a
younger maternal half-sister of Marie de Champagne and Alix of France.
She was a younger sister of William, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young
King, Matilda of England, Richard I of England, Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany
and Leonora of Aquitaine. She was also an older sister of John of England.
Joan was born at Château d'Angers in Anjou, and spent her youth at her mother's courts at Winchester and Poitiers. In 1176, William II of Sicily sent ambassadors to the English court to ask for Joan's hand in marriage. The betrothal was confirmed on 20 May and on 27 August Joan set sail for Sicily, escorted by John of Oxford, the bishop of Norwich and her uncle, Hamelin de Warenne, 5th Earl of Surrey. In Saint Gilles, her entourage was met by representatives of the Kingdom of Sicily: Alfano, Archbishop of Capua, and Richard Palmer, Bishop of Syracuse.
After a hazardous voyage, Joan arrived safely, and on 13 February 1177, she married William II of Sicily and was crowned Queen of Sicily at Palermo Cathedral. They had one son, Bohemond, born in 1181 and who died in infancy. Following William's death in 1189, she was kept a prisoner by the new king, Tancred of Sicily.
Finally, her brother Richard I of England arrived in Italy in 1190, on the way to the Holy Land. He demanded her return, along with every penny of her dowry. When Tancred balked at these demands, Richard seized a monastery and the castle of La Bagnara. He decided to spend the winter in Italy and attacked and subdued the city of Messina. Finally, Tancred agreed to the terms and sent Joan's dowry. In March 1191 Eleanor of Aquitaine arrived in Messina with Richard's bride, Berengaria of Navarre.
Eleanor returned to England, leaving Berengaria in Joan's care. Richard decided to postpone his wedding, put his sister and bride on a ship, and set sail. Two days later the fleet was hit by a fierce storm, destroying several ships and blowing Joan and Berengaria's ship off course. Richard landed safely in Crete, but they were stranded near Cyprus. The self-appointed despot of Cyprus, Isaac Comnenus was about to capture them when Richard's fleet suddenly appeared. The princesses were saved, but the despot made off with Richard's treasure. Richard pursued and captured Isaac, threw him into a dungeon, and sent Joan and Berengaria on to Acre.
Joan was Richard's favourite sister, but he was not above using her as a bargaining chip in his political schemes. He even suggested marrying her to Saladin's brother, Al-Adil, and making them joint rulers of Jerusalem. This plan fell apart when Joan refused to marry a Muslim and Al-Adil refused to marry a Christian. King Philip II of France also expressed some interest in marrying her, but this scheme, too, failed possibly on grounds of affinity, since Philip's father Louis VII had formerly been married to her mother.
Countess of Toulouse
Joan was married in October 1196, at Rouen, to Raymond VI of Toulouse, with Quercy and the Agenais as her dowry. She was the mother of his successor Raymond VII of Toulouse, and a short lived daughter 1198.
This new husband treated her none too gently, however, and Joan came to fear him and his knights. In 1199, while pregnant with a third child, Joan was left alone to face a rebellion in which the lords of Saint-Félix-de-Caraman were prominent. She laid siege to their castle at les Cassès but was menaced by treachery. Escaping this threat, Joan travelled northwards, hoping for her brother's protection, but found him dead at Chalus. She then fled to her mother Queen Eleanor's court at Rouen, where she was offered refuge and care.
Joan asked to be admitted to Fontevrault Abbey, an unusual request for a married, pregnant woman, but this request was granted. She died in childbirth and was veiled a nun on her deathbed. Her son lived just long enough to be baptised he was named Richard. Joan was thirty-three years old. She was buried at Fontevrault Abbey, and fifty years later her son Raymond VII would be interred next to her.

Plantagenet, 'Longespee', 1st Earl of Salisbury b 17.08.1152, d 04.03.1226
was an English noble, primarily remembered for his command of the English
forces at the Battle of Damme and for remaining loyal to King John.
He was an illegitimate son of Henry II of England. His mother was unknown for many years, until the discovery of a charter of William mentioning "Comitissa Ida, mater mea" engl. "Countess Ida, my mother" [ Reed, Paul C. 2002, "Countess Ida, Mother of William Longespée, Illegitimate Son of Henry II", The American Genealogist 77 2002: 137]
This Ida was further identified as the wife of Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk .
King Henry acknowledged William as his son and gave him the Honour of Appleby, Lincolnshire in 1188. Ten years later, his half-brother, King Richard I, married him to a great heiress, Ela, countess of Salisbury in her own right, and daughter of William of Salisbury, 2nd Earl of Salisbury.
During the reign of King John, Salisbury was at court on several important ceremonial occasions, and held various offices: sheriff of Wiltshire, lieutenant of Gascony, constable of Dover and warden of the Cinque Ports, and later warden of the Welsh Marches. He was a commander in the king's Welsh and Irish expeditions of 1210-1212. The king also granted him the honour of Eye.
In 1213, Salisbury led a large fleet to Flanders, where he seized or destroyed a good part of a French invasion fleet anchored at or near Damme. This ended the invasion threat but not the conflicts between England and France. In 1214, Salisbury was sent to help Otto IV of Germany, an English ally, who was invading France. Salisbury commanded the right wing of the army at their disastrous defeat at the Battle of Bouvines, where he was captured.
By the time he returned to England, revolt was brewing amongst the barons. Salisbury was one of the few who remained loyal to John. In the civil war that took place the year after the signing of the Magna Carta, Salisbury was one of the leaders of the king's army in the south. However, after the French prince Louis later Louis VIII landed as an ally of the rebels, Salisbury went over to his side. Presumably, he thought John's cause was lost.
After John's death and the departure of Louis, Salisbury, along with many other barons, joined the cause of John's young son, now Henry III of England. He held an influential place in the government during the king's minority and fought in Gascony to help secure the remaining part of the English continental possessions. Salisbury's ship was nearly lost in a storm while returning to England in 1225, and he spent some months in refuge at a monastery on the French island of Ré. He died not long after his return to England at Salisbury Castle. Roger of Wendover alleged that he was poisoned by Hubert de Burgh. He was buried at Salisbury Cathedral in Salisbury, Wiltshire, England.
William de Longespee's tomb was opened in 1791. Bizarrely, the well-preserved corpse of a rat which carried traces of arsenic , was found inside his skull.
