    • The House of Tudor was an English royal house of Welsh origin, descended in the male line from the Tudors of Penmynydd.
      Tudor monarchs ruled the Kingdom of England and its realms.

      From an Irish numismatic perspective, I have arbitrarily described their Irish coins as “Anglo-Norman.” In this Irish numismatic context, should I change this to Welsh? What do you think, Mary?
