La Dinastia della Ginestra (Gene di Isthar o Avril de Genis)e' la medesima origine della Sancta Propago Staufer (Ex Freya o Isthar)

Plantagenet Ancestry
This page was set up by Robert Sewell in February 2002 to show the descent of the Sewell Family from their Plantagent or Angevin ancestors. As well, we find here a link to Elizabeth de Crépi of Vermandois and the Carolingian Kings of France.

Generation One
Geoffrey "Ferole", Count of the Gâtinais and Château Laudon
circa 1000
Geoffrey married Beatrice de Mâcon, daughter of Aubri Count of Mâcon and Burgundy and they had a son:

Avril or Aubri Geoffrey

Generation Two
Avril ou Aubri Geoffrey, Count of the Gâtinais and Château Laudon
Died on April 11, 1046

Avril or Aubri Geoffrey married Ermengarde, heiress of Anjou who was born circa 1010/1015 and died on March 21, 1076. Ermengard was the sister of Geoffrey "Martel", Count of Anjou who was born on October 14, 996 and d.s.p. (decessit sine prole, died without issue) on November 14, 1066. Thus, Ermengard's descendants became the Counts of Anjou.

Avril or Aubri Geoffrey and Ermengard had the following children:

Hildegard who was born circa 1032 and married Joscelin, Sire di Courtenay
Fulk IV "le Rechin"

Generation Three
Fulk IV "le Rechin", Count of Anjou
Born in 1043
Died on April 14, 1109

Fulk is noted as "chronicler of the Counts of Anjou", so presumably he began a family history. He is known as "Fulk le Rechin" which means "Fulk the Rude". The reason for this name is unclear.

Fulk married Bertrada de Montfort, daughter of Simon I, Seigneur of Montfort Amauri and they had a son:

Fulk V "le Jeun"

Generation Four
Fulk V "le Jeun", Count of Anjou and Maine, King of Jerusalem
Born in 1092
Died on November 10, 1143

Fulk "le Jeun" (the Younger) became King of Jerusalem in 1131 on the death of Baldwin II, his father-in-law by his second marriage. Fulk is buried in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem.

The Crusades

The Crusaders set up the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem after killing many thousands of the Arab and Jewish inhabitants of the area. At its greatest extent under Fulk "le Jeun", the Kingdom comprised most of present day Israel and part of Syria. Muslim counterattack steadily shrank the size of the crusading kingdom. In 1187, Jerusalem was retaken by by Saladin. Eventually, the last Christian stronghold at Acre surrendered in 1291 and the Crusaders departed from the Holy Land.

Fulk married first circa 1108 to Erembourge (died in 1126), heiress of Maine, daughter of Helias, Seigneur de la Flèche, Count of Maine.

Fulk and Erembourge had the following children:

Geoffrey Plantagenet
Isabella or Mathilda who married William the Aetheling, Duke of Normandy who was the only legitimate son of King Henry Beauclerc of England. William drowned when the White Ship was wrecked on the deadly rock. A boat was launched and William was rowed to safety. The cries of his half-sister Maud, Countess of Perche, induced him to return to the wreck where they sank together. This was considered by some to be punishment for Henry's sins of lust in having so many illegitimate offspring. He had four legitemate children and at least twenty-five illegitimate children.
Fulk "le Jeun" married second on June 2, 1129 to Mélesinde, daughter of Baldwin II, King of Jerusalem. On the death of Baldwin II in 1131, Fulk "le Jeun" became King of Jerusalem.
