The extended family network of the Plantagenets is extraordinarily complicated. So complicated, in fact, that it was not possible to incorporate a practically functioning diagram of the family within A Palace For Our Kings.
Consequently, readers of the book are welcome to download (for free) a number of family trees relating to many of the individuals mentioned in the text. These diagrams were created via the excellent online family tree-maker Family Echo which comes as a highly recommended tool.
The tree has been broken down into seven elements:
- The Angevin and Plantagenet monarchy
- The French connections of the Plantagenets
- Scottish Kings
- The Mortimers and the Yorkists
- De Burgh family
- Post-Mediaeval owners of Clipstone
