From 1455 to 1485 England found itself embroiled in utter chaos as the rival factions of the Plantagenet dynasty fought for the ultimate control of the kingdom of England. The Wars of the Roses is a modern-day term used for the 30-year period in which the two Plantagenet branches – the House of York and the House of Lancaster – fought each other for supreme power in the realm. It was a bloody back and forth struggle that saw no less than five changes in power over a relatively short period of time among four kings: Henry VI, Edward IV, Richard III, and Henry VII. The Wars of the Roses was not a continual military campaign but instead it was a series of pitched battles, seventeen in all, that occurred over the 30-year period.
