Elizabeth II
Queen of England

     I am a descendant of the family Plantagenet as is Queen Elizabeth. Our common ancestors are Geoffrey Plantagenet of  Anjou and his wife Matilda. I came through their son William, Count of Anjou or Poitou. The queen came through Williams brother, King Henry II.

     This quote comes from Her Majesty's own website under (The Angevins).
     "Henry II, the son of Geoffrey Plantagenet and Henry I's daughter Matilda, was the first in a long line of 14 Plantagenet kings, stretching from Henry II's accession through to Richard III's death in 1485. Within that line, however, four distinct Royal Houses can be identified: Angevin, Plantagenet, Lancaster and York".

     Matilda was the daughter of Henry I and Matilda of Scotland. Henry I was brother of William II, and son of William I (William the conqueror).

     Anjou is in west central France where the family Plantagenet was from.

My lineage from me going back to William son of Geoffrey. There are many paths, this is only one of them.
This includes spouses if known. To make things easier, the direct bloodline is in blue.
