Learn about The Plantagenets with iMinds insightful knowledge series.

The House of Plantagenet was a royal house of 15 monarchs who ruled England from 1154-1485.

The Plantagenets originally came from France, where they ruled a county called Anjou. They were a strange and powerful family, complex and prone to insanity. Their founder, Count Fulk III (known as "The Black"), had his wife burned at the stake in her wedding dress when he discovered she was sleeping with a goatherd. His great grandson, Geoffrey V gave the dynasty its name. The word Plantagenet comes from the name of a flower: plante genĂȘt in French, or "common broom". Geoffrey V was said to have worn a sprig of the golden flower in his battle helmet.
