Graistan Genealogy

Okay, sort of.  But some of my readers have asked how Faucon de Ramis is related to Gilliam FitzHenry (Spring’s Fury) and Geoffrey FitzHenry (Autumn’s Flame).  So, understanding that my people are purely fictional, here’s how it COULD have happened.

It all starts with Adeliza de Clare who marries Aubrey de Vere.  They have tons of children–12 give or take–including one who has no name (daughter de Vere).  Of course she’s the one who married Roger de Ramis, Faucon’s grandfather. Their son, Thomas married Matilda and they are the parents of William and Faucon. Meanwhile, another of Bishop William’s sisters, Felice married a Roger de Raine. In my version of history, late in life Felice gives birth to Ermina de Raine, the mother of Gilliam and Geoffrey.
