Delving into the Plantagenet Bloodline | Documentary Idea
by Kerrie Campbell
THIS TOPIC NOW CLOSED
I have been working on my family tree and found I am a direct decendeant of the plantagenet blood line. I find it extremely interesting as my family tree contains most of the world's historical figures and some very shady characters and giving the volume of work (including all the works of fiction) out there on the plantagenet bloodline linking them to everything and anything.
I think it would be extremely interesting to trace the family tree back and delve into the past with a direct decendant. I have traced my family tree back 150 generations but at this stage i'm just getting it all down as I come across it and will research it more in depth and find out all the stories later. But I have been sharing this work with all my family and friends and they are all hanging on the 'next installment' of my investigations so it got me thinking that there is a great deal of interest in this.
You only have to look at our literature, films and the internet to see the level of interest.
My line goes back through the somerset family (my grandmother) through the house of Beaufort, Kings of England, France, Wales Scotland and Spain through to the house of Anjou through to the Merovingian and Frankish bloodlines.
It is a very interesting and quite a crazy bloodline and it seems really crazy that a normal girl from Australia has this crazy historical bloodline. I thought the documentary could start with my journey through the family tree looking at the history and tales behind each of the members of the bloodline. As I said the bloodline touches a lot of the major characters in history so it would be a very interesting journey.THIS TOPIC NOW CLOSED
