Mental block as to which house the Georges belonged to... I gave up just before the line "And then began the Hanover gang" from the Horrible Histories song occurred to me.

If you're going to split Henry II through John as separate from the Plantagenets (even though it's all the same house), I would suggest accepting Angevin for Anjou.

That's the only one I didn't get. They're definitely Plantagenets.

After John they technically aren't Angevins and the term Plantagenet didn't come into being until the 15th century.

Yeah, to separate Anjou is very disputable. The term Plantagenet was coined after Henry II's father...

Yeah, I agree that they should be counted as Plantagenets. Also, Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and Windsor is the same house. You can ask for the two names, but I think that the test shouldn't imply that there was a change of dynasty just because they decided to change their name.

+ The only reason why they changed was because of the War and wanting to disassociate themselves from the Germans.

The last Saxe-Coburg-Gotha monarch was King George V. King Edward VII died in 1910.

Queen Anne reigned from 1700 to 1714 not 1600...

The years aren't saying that was Anne's rule. That's the time that someone who was part of the house was ruling.

They were part of the house of Plantagenet, not Anjou.

Why is the House of Orange-Nassau for king William III not added?
+1
level 60
Sep 27, 2018
He ruled only because he happened to be married to Mary, who was still technically a Stuart. It was her birthright that acceded her to the crown, she demanded William be co-regent, Parliament acquiesced.

That's not the whole story. He had his own claim to the throne.He was Charles I's grandson - but that would still make him a Stuart in the context of the English and Scottish crowns.

Could Norman/Normans not be allowed for House of Normandy?

I'd only say that they didn't come from "Norman/Normans," they came from the geographical location, Normandy. Not trying to split hairs!

Technically George V should be added as final ruler of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, he ruled under that House from 1910 to 1917.
