Originating with Henry II in 1154, the House of Plantagenet would directly and indirectly, through cadet houses, rule the English throne until 1485. King Edward III was one of the most prominent Plantagenet rulers, sitting on the throne of England for 50 years during the 14th century. His reign was the second longest in Medieval England and resulted in the adoption of the White Falcon by countless future generations.
