Main Category for the Wars of the Roses

The Wars of the Roses were a series of battles for the throne of England. Fought between the rival Plantagenet houses of Lancaster and York, they chose the respective symbols of red and white roses.

Collectively, these battles occurred in sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1485, but fights broke out before and after this period. They resulted from social and financial troubles following the Hundred Years' War.
