« back to classes page
The War of the Roses was in fact 3 interconnected civil wars fought over 30 years by 2 branches of the longtime ruling Plantagenet family - Lancaster and York.  (In it's own time the War of the Roses was called the Cousins War).  The war was initially a struglle over the governance of England but ultimately became a fight for the throne itself.  The War of the Roses could have been ended peacefully more than once but the war was driven onward by 3 strong willed women - Margaret of Anjou, called the She Tiger of Anjou; later by Elizabeth Woodville; and ultimately by Margaret Tudur.
