Description

Fotheringhay

Masonry remains of Fotheringhay Castle . Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots alone would cement Fotheringhay’s place in the history of Britain, but it is only one part of its political significance. Hundreds of years earlier, it was a place of major national importance, practically the Windsor of its day, as the stronghold of the House of Plantagenet. This was the dynasty that ruled England from 1154 to 1485. It spawned a total of 15 kings, starting with Henry II and ending with Richard III ( born at Fotheringhay Castle on October 2, 1452.)

Worry about me as well the as I can see what John can ! Again very interesting info Zbigniew ( are you watching the tv programme on the Plantagenets at the moment and do not forget the programme on 26th March about William Marshal- the Greatest Knight of All Time -and an ancestor on my wife's side ). Excellent.
