Royal House template
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.
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)
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)"
There is a conflict between this article which states:
and the article House of Lancaster, which states:
- 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)
Heraldic Symbol - White Rose
On the basis that the symbol used on the this article appears to be a romantic victorian affectation rather than a coat of arms should the article be changed to a coat of arms used by the House— namely the quartered lillies and lions?Norfolkbigfish (talk) 10:21, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
