The Progeny of King Henry I of England

Henry I, King of England, called the good scholar "Beauclerc" had:

  • Two wives
  • At least 15 mistresses
  • About 24 children.

This project will look at each of the children and their families. (sub-projects?)

  1. The first priority will be to ensure that each child's tree is correct. This will be more straightforward for some than for others
  2. The second step will be to ensure the "About Me" section is as complete as possible
