War of the Roses

War of the Roses

by RobinNeillands (Author)


The vicious wars between the English noble houses of York and Lancaster marked the end of medieval England and the birth of the Renaissance. The end of that 30-year period of strife and bloodshed saw the collapse of the great Plantagenet dynasty, rulers of all England and much of France for over 300 years, and the rise of the Tudors, destined to dominate English political life during the next century. All the characters are here: Henry V and his luckless son, Henry VI, together with his unfortunate uncles, John of Bedford and Humphrey of Gloucester, not to mention the notorious Richard III and his nephews - The Princes in the Tower.
