    ---
    I know of no reputable historical source that credits any of our King Henrys with 200 mistresses, but, of the eight to date, Henry I had the most known, and begot the most children.
    Henry I fathered no fewer than 10 male bastards and 13 to 16 female ones in all, and had a legitimate son and daughter by the first of his two wives. Only seven of his 25 to 28 known children seem reasonably certain to have no living descendants. Moreover, given Henry I's exceptional randiness, much better attested to than Henry II's, he probably fathered many more bastards on women whose names are forgotten than Henry II ever did. Henry I also lived two generations earlier than Henry II, and thus is much more universal an ancestor in terms of distance in time.
