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.
