  Angevin - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first Angevin dynasty, known from the 12th century as the Plantagenet dynasty, came (with its Lancastrian and Yorkist branches) to rule England (1154–1485), Normandy (1144–1204, 1346–1360 and 1415–1450), and Gascony and Guyenne (1153–1453), but lost Anjou itself to the French crown in 1206.
The surname "Plantagenet" has been retrospectively applied to the descendants of Geoffrey of Anjou without historical justification: it is simply a convenient method of referring to people who had, in fact, no surname.
The first descendant of Geoffrey to use the surname was Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York, father of both Edward IV and Richard III, who apparently assumed it about 1448.
