About this course

Tonbridge History Short course -The War of the Roses. The fall of the Plantagenets and the rise of the Tudors
After the humiliation of defeat in the Hundred Years Years War, England’s ruling Plantagenet dynasty was split into 2 factions, Lancastrian and Yorkists. The course will explore why this happened and chart a path through the confusing eruptions of armed conflict, attempts at reconciliation, changes in monarch and government that happened between 1455 and 1485 when a new dynasty, the Tudors, was established, in some sense re-uniting what was left of the 2 factions under the new joint symbol of the Tudor Rose. The course will also refer to Shakespeare’s treatment of the subject and check the reliability of this popular take on the personalities and events of the century preceding his own.
