Dear John ~
I believe it's possible that William de Burgh's unknown wife was the
daughter not of King Henry II, but rather of his son, King John.
King John had many illegitimate children born over the course of his
adult life. His eldest known illegitimate child, Geoffrey, first
surfaces in 1200 and was clearly acting as an adult by 1204.
If John had an illegitimate daughter of the same age as Geoffrey, she
would have just enough time to marry William de Burgh, produce a
child, and then have William de Burgh die in 1205.
Also, given that we have so many illegitimate sons for King John and
know so few daughters, it stands to reason that we are missing the
names of a few of his daughters.
Best always, Douglas Richardson, Salt Lake City, Utah
