  Geoffrey V, Count of Anjou - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Geoffrey V (August 24, 1113 – September 7, 1151), Count of Anjou and Maine, and later Duke of Normandy, called Le Bel ("The Fair") or "Geoffrey Plantagenet", was the father of King Henry II of England, and thus the forefather of the Plantagenet dynasty of English kings.
Geoffrey was the eldest son of Fulk, Count of Anjou and King-Consort of Jerusalem.
Geoffrey held the duchy until 1149, when he and Matilda conjointly ceded it to their son, Henry, which cession was formally ratified by King Louis VII of France the following year.

 Chronicle of the Counts of Anjou
Geoffrey count of Anjou, when he had heard the royal messenger who was summoning him to come to the king's Pentecost court, made his arrangements for the castle of Landonense, which was his, before the appointed day, and came to Orléans a few days before the Ascension.
The count withdrew unharmed, but the Dane, who had received a tremendous blow which had split his shield and breastplate, and whose lance was broken, withdrew the count's iron lodged in his left side and wounded the count's horse in its back leg.
When the count had heard this he rushed off to their aid, pretending he was going to the castle of Landonense, and rode night and day, changing horses often; he ordered those of his men whom he met on the way to follow him.

 The Plantagenets
The line descended from the marriage of Geoffrey, Count of Anjou with Matilda, daughter of Henry I. The name Plantagenet seems to have originated as a nickname for Count Geoffrey and refers to his habit of wearing a sprig of broom flower (Latin planta genista) in his hat.
The first official use of the surname Plantagenet by any descendant of Count Geoffrey occurred in 1460, when Richard, Duke of York, claimed the throne as "Richard Plantagenet." The legitimate male issue of the Plantagenet line became extinct with the execution in 1499 of Edward, Earl of Warwick, grandson of Richard, Duke of York.
