The  Wars  of  the  Roses,  1377-1471,  were  a  series  of  English  civil  wars  fought  for 

O 

the  control  of  the  throne  of  England  between  two  rival  cadet  branches  of  the 

» 

House  of  Plantagenet,  Lancaster  and  York.  The  Scottish  historian  Robert  Balmain 

D9 

Mowat  (1883-1941)  writes  that  these  wars  saw  "the  death  of  the  old  England  and 

the  beginning  of  the  new."  But  they  also  saw  the  emergence  of  great 

personalities:  the  noble  Richard  of  York,  Warwick  the  Kingmaker,  King  Edward 

1 

IV,  indolent  and  energetic  by  turns,  and  his  relentless  opponent,  Margaret  of 

1 

Anjou,  a  true  she-wolf  of  France.
