Non-Plants who claimed a genealogical link between Plant and Plantagenet
in the nineteenth century were indeed loony. Commercial companies who
perpetuate the myth are economical with the truth (to state it at it
politest). Authors of books like "the Holy Blood and the Holy Grail" and
"the Da Vinci Code" are similalry economical with the truth (to remain
polite). Medieval genealogists who have no interest in rectifying these
lunacies are as guilty as the loony.

Some Plants are loony. However, they are often more interested in
putting the record straight, in the midst of this lunacy which is not of
their making! You have moved on to discussing the lunacy. Are you not
interested in the evidence?

Have you been following any of this?
