Royal House template[edit]

As the House of York is a cadet branch of the House of Plantagenet, and the Yorkist took the surname Plantagenet, is it correct to describe it separately to the House of Plantagenet, in the "Royal Houses" succession template?

The Yorkists are listed as part of the House of Plantagenet in the List of monarchs of England page, not separately to it, and included in the list of Plantagenet Kings in the House of Plantagenet page.

Equivalent, related comments also raised for the House of Plantagenet, House of Lancaster, and House of Tudor "Royal Houses" succession templates.

The White Rose of York is supposed to stand on two leaves. Wikipedia has it standing on one leaf.BeeryUSA 2:02, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

"cadet branches"[edit]

A user just added the following as Cadet branches but I can find no reference to them:

"House of Tyne, House of Washington, House of Lee (later unified into the joint House of Washington and Lee by the marriage of General Robert E. Lee to Mary Anna Randolph Custis - Custis was the great Grand-daughter of George Washington and Martha Custis -Washington and thereby by name basis unified the two houses)"

Nor do they have articles. On that basis I'm going to remove it. - Yorkshirian (talk) 07:28, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

No, I think someone's taking the having a larf. Craigy (talk) 08:07, 27 June 2008 (UTC)

Conflict[edit]

There is a conflict between this article which states:

The House of York was descended from Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, the fourth surviving son of Edward III.

and the article House of Lancaster, which states:

...the descendants of Edward III's second surviving son, Lionel of Antwerp, 1st Duke of Clarence...eventually became the rival House of York.

--Ttownfeen (talk) 21:38, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Both are correct according to the Oxford History of Britain. Edmund Duke of York (4th son of Edward III) had a son Richard who married Anne Mortimer the great granddaughter of Lionel Duke of Clarence (2nd surviving son of Edward III). The House of York are the descendants of this line. I'll look at the best way to change the articles to reflect this, (it gets even more complicated as they are also descended from John of Gaunt, Edward III's third surviving son, through one of his granddaughters). --Kaly99 (talk) 23:43, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Category:House of Plantagenet vs. Category:House of York[edit]

Category:House of York is itself a catageory within Category:House of Plantagenet. — Robert Greer (talk) 22:49, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

Earl of Loudoun[edit]

I figured that it was worth noting the Loudoun branch, as a modern claimant. --Zimriel (talk) 19:53, 16 November 2012 (UTC)
