Fleur De Lys - The Truth of Plantagenet
''Plantagenet' royal blood can be traced back over a thousand years. A flower was the emblem of the family, explained as a 'getal' (3 diagonal lines across a straight line) from ancient OGHAM Celt language , recognised by Julius Caesar, is the ancient letter that was used to identify the original Plantagenets- using ancient flower language.
Originating more recently from Breton from the then known Bretagne (Britanny) Amorica and other parts of France. The Robillard Family De Torce also were Grand-parents to the Champagne family and related to the De Lucye Family- or Plantagenets.
Some Lucyes settled in Britain in the 11th Century and some even before, in Ireland and Scotland (as well as using the surname 'Lucy' in England, more commonly used as a first name).
The Stuarts, Mackenzies and Campbells of Scotland are close relatives.
Some Lucyes came with William of Normandy (son of a Duke of Normandy)- the 'conquerer' and were related to him, both Lucy/Lucye and Robillard surnames were associated with the most ancient Nobility known in the Europe. More recently, some are related to the Saxe Coburg Gotha line.
Confusing the Fleur de Lys with the 3 feathers ('fleur' means flower- the flower referred to is the Tall Bearded Iris) and 'Fleur De Lys' means = Flower of Light or Flower of Lucy - (Lucy or Lucye was a Royal surname) - confusing the Fleur De Lis or Lys with the 3 feathers of WALES as a Royal emblem, is a bad, erroneous thing to do if you are a historian or Royal.
nGetal (above left) is a tree-letter of well-being and healing.
Fleur De Lys is a symbolic promise of 'truth' and was used by the Plantagenet family as a symbol of truth, as a family motto, the symbol is used globally as a truth symbol. I claim copyright!
Julius Caesar, who lived in the first century BC, mentioned druids using Ogham in Gaul.
It's often drawn and written mistakenly by anti-royalists or people who hate monarchy for reasons they often do not understand.
It is also mistakenly referred to as 'lily' when in fact is Broome or Iris - Latin name Iridaceae, or a type of 'tall-bearded iris'.
(The roots of iris have been used in fine perfumes for thousands of years, and it is said the name of the country of Ireland was derived from name of the flower Iris)
The other Plantagenet family names were Lucye, Robillard & Champagne.
Dame Elizabeth Lucye/Lucy was a noble woman who married Edward 1V and had two children by him within their family home, but he committed adultery and bigamy (some argue 'breach of promise') and called his new family the genuine royals when marrying another woman-against the advice of his mother and other nobles. Edwards' mother Cecily (pictured below) was distressed at this and tried all she could to prevent Edward discarding Lady Elizabeth Lucye and her children, one of them was Arthur Plantagenet.
Had this not happened, the UK could be a Catholic country and the Royal Family would be recognised as Plantagenet.
Princess Diana had much Plantagenet blood and so Princes William and Harry, her sons, are very Royal indeed.
Reading ancient Ogham texts, it looks like Plantagenets were the oldest Royal and noble family of Europe.
You can trace the family roots way back to before there was an English Channel thousands of years ago.
All this is debated though, as ancient civilizations may have lived in a civilised way in Europe far longer ago than we have previously thought.
If you look hard enough and trace the family line properly, you will find the Plantagenet family can be traced to when Amoricans (Brittany was known as'Amorica'- Bretons are from what British call 'Britanny') used to travel to and from Cornwall for trade and social reasons.
Many Bretons and Cornish today believe that Amorica and Cornwall are one and the same people and generally enjoy a good relationship, if feeling stifled by both France and Britain, as they would like independence, both Cornwall and Brittany- as do many of the the English, Scots and Welsh in the UK.

The secret of Plantagenet and Fleur De Lys is not one any more, but the Brit Royals are very quiet about it, maybe they think the public wouldn't understand.
Here's just one example of evidence, a Thomas More document

What have we got from this? That Arthur was known as Arthur Waite, may give
an indication that his mother was Elizabeth Waite/Wayte. Elizabeth Hallam's
book makes this Elizabeth Waite a Mrs. Elizabeth Lucy. The Complete Peerage
makes this Mrs. Elizabeth a Lady Elizabeth Lucy. "Blood Royal" makes Lady
Elizabeth Lucy also mother of Elizabeth (Lumley).
