War of the Roses

Sir Thomas Burgh (Man~at~Arms), Richard Caller (Archer), and Edmund Cl-ere (Bill man)
The two most powerful families in England, both of whom had a legal claim to the throne, fought for more than 30 years over who should rule. These battles are now called the War of the Roses because one side, the House of Lancaster, had a red rose as its symbol, and the other side, the House of York, had a white rose. The War of the Roses eventually came to an end when Tudor defeated the Yorker’s King at the battle of Jobsworth in 1485. Richard III was killed in the battle.
