3 King Henry II Henry II project . Check proper description of Rosamund de Clifford relationship
Spousem. Alienor of Aquitaine mother of 8 legit children
4 William Died young. No issue.
4 Young King Henry Wife and son in Wikitree as per RA. Son died as baby
4 Mathilda See [ table below]
4 King Richard I, Lionheart m. but no legit issue. Check issue. RA names 1 illegit son Philip not in Wikitree, and Wikipedia says he was the only acknowledged child. But Wikitree has an illegitimate daughter not explained in text
4 Geoffrey, Duke of BritannyIssue RA says 1s 2d like Wikitree. No grandchildren though
4 Eleanor See [ table below]
4 Joan RA says m1. King William II of Sicily 1s (Wikipedia indicates he must have died young); m2. Count Raymond VI of Toulouse 1s whose daughter died without issue. Wikipedia says also 1d, and MEDLANDS discusses her descendants. no children in wikitree
4 King John LacklandSee [ table below]
Illegitimate children. RA and H2 agree on 4 as most sure:
Mistress Ykenai or Hikenai only named by Walter Map, whose credibility is challenged because he was one of Geoffrey's enemies who was really suggesting he wasn't the son of King Henry II.
4 Geoffrey Archbishop of York. No issue?Kirk Hess
MistressIda de Toeniwife of Roger de Bigod (RA believes proven), (see [1], surname de Tony), DNB names her de Tosny, da. of Roger de Tosny
4 William Longespée See [ table below]
MistressName unknown
4 MathildaAbbess. No issue?
MistressNest, not in wikitree, daughter of Iorwerth ap Owain, possibly Ap_Owain-50
4 Morgan Not in Wikitree Provost of Beverley. No issue?
3 Geoffrey VI d'Anjou, Count of Nantes no issue
3 William Longespée no issue? Wikitree names a wife and daughter not appearing in the named sources, apparently from Banks but he was talking about a son of Henry II not a brother Reconnect wife and daughter Do not confuse with his nephew!!

Work to do:

  • Joan's daughter in Toulouse needs to be added to Wikitree if she existed.

I believe John Lackland had two wives both named Isabella: Isabella, Countess of Gloucester (c.1173-1217) no issue, marriage annulled; Isabella of Angoulème (either 1186 or 1188, sources vary)-1246.

Should the LNAB have an accent mark in their wikitree ID? If your key board does not have the accent mark you can not pull up the profile.

Stephen (Longespée) de Longespée
