Wars of the Roses
The Wars of the Roses were a series of battles that took place over a thirty year period. The official start date was the 22nd May 1455 with the Battle of St Albans, but it is my belief that the seeds of this conflict were the issues between York and Somerset that were sown into a country that had real problems following the death of Edward, the Black Prince and the reign of Richard II.
You can find more information regarding two of these battles, one of which, the Battle of Stoke in 1487 on my blog on my website
