Name: Ida De Toeni
Change Date: 30 MAR 2010
Perhaps the most important correction included in ?Plantagenet Ancestry? is the maternity of William Longespée, Earl of Salisbury, a well known illegitimate son of King Henry II of England. William has long been thought to have been the product of his father?s illicit affair with ?Fair? Rosamond Clifford. In 1979 Vera London published charter evidence which proved that William was actually the son of an unidentified ?Countess Ida.? In 1993 Douglas Richardson identified William?s mother as Ida, wife of Roger Bigod, Earl of Norfolk. This identification has been confirmed in recent time by the research of Ray Phair.
