Geoffrey V (24 August 1113 – 7 September 1151), called the Fair (French: le Bel) or Plantagenet, was the Count of Anjou, Touraine and Maine by inheritance from 1129, and also Duke of Normandy by his marriage claim, and conquest, from 1144. Geoffrey's marriage to Empress Matilda, daughter of King Henry I of England and Duke of Normandy, led through their son, Henry II, to the 300-year long reign of the Plantagenet dynasty in England. Although it was never his family name or last name, "Plantagenet" was taken for the dynasty from Geoffrey's epithet, long after his death. Read more on Wikipedia
