On this Day in the Wars of the Roses (Paperback)


Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days

Within the book, you will find accounts from the time of battles, betrayals, trials, executions, weddings, and invasions. Alongside these are curiosities such as the first Wool Fleet, Licences to perform Alchemy and events that pose questions:

- Was Henry VI mad?

- How big was 'England's bloodiest battle'?

- Was Prince George executed in a vat of Malmsey Wine?

- How did Richard Duke of Gloucester become King Richard III?

- When were the Princes in the Tower last seen?

This book goes beyond the births, deaths, and marriages of the 15th century. The glamour of the court and coronations is joined by plots, uprisings, and reprisals. Scientific, literary, religious, and trading developments and breakthroughs are explored. Political wrangling's, social justice, and the legal system's intrigues emerge in events from each day of the year. Large bloody Battles, claiming hereditary rights and campaigning feature alongside the glamour of court, the ceremony of coronations, and royal marriages' splendour.

A unique event from each day of the year is to be found in this book. King Henry VI, Edward IV, Edward V, Richard III and Henry VII all feature. Famous Queens and Regal events are included, such as Margaret of Anjou, 'The White Queen' Elizabeth Woodville and Elizabeth of York.
