Additional Information: Who were the Plantagenets?

We welcome the submission of content for our Website.

Eligibility for membership in this Society is based upon lineal descent from one or more of the Plantagenet Kings of England. Plantagenet was the surname used by the Angevin House, which succeeded to the throne of England in A.D. 1154 in the person of Henry II, who ruled until the deposition of Richard II (1399). The houses of York and Lancaster, which succeeded, being descended from Edward III, are generally included in the Plantagenet Line.

We encourage interest and welcome new members. If you are qualified, we encourage you to complete the lineage forms and submit them to the Society along with either a proposal from a member or your cv or resume. Please be sure to include your references and documentation, with copies, to establish your qualifications.

 Normally candidates for membership are proposed for membership by other members. Considering that many outstanding candidates may not know a member but be committed to the purposes and mission of our Society and who share our interest in the origin of our constitutional liberty and in genealogy, we have adopted a procedure where a candidate could submit a cv or resume reflecting his or her interests and accomplishments. That information, along with the lineage information, will be considered by the Society.
