War of the Roses 1455 - 1487


The War of Roses

The Wars of the Roses were a series of civil wars fought in medieval England from 1455 to 1487. For thirty - two years, a bitter struggle for the English throne was waged between two branches on the same family, the House of York and the House of Lancaster, both descended from Edward lll.

The War of the Roses began in 1455, when many barons resented the way that the Lancaster family had seized the throne in 1399 and felt that Henry V, IV or VI were not the rightful kings. (Henry IV, the first Lancastrian King, came to the English throne by force. He made his cousin Richard ll, abdicate, and then seized the crown himself.) According to the barons, the York family, cousins of the Lancasters, were truly entitled to reign.

The Battle of Stoke is considered by most people as the final conflict in the Wars of the Roses.

Each house was represented by a rose.

The Struggle for power was know as the War of the Roses because the Lancaster emblem was a red rose and the York emblem a white rose.
