The first Plantagenet Rulers of England can be considered to be the Angevin kings, though the name was not adopted by the family until Richard of York in the 15th century, but has been retroactively applied.

The last Angevin Ruler, John, lost most of the continental empire that had given the House of Anjou that name. His son, Henry III, is therefore considered here the first Plantagenet rather than an Angevin.
