War of the Roses

The War of the Roses (1455-1485) was a bloody 30-year long civil war between two houses of English nobles, the Lancasters (Red Roses) and the Yorks (White Roses). This committee begins in 1470, after 15 years of bloody battles and vicious political conflicts. The Yorkist King Edward IV is entering his ninth year on the throne while Lancastrian leaders have fled, their forces defeated, and their people executed. Turmoil and betrayal within the White Roses, and the return of the Lancastrian Queen Margaret of Anjou, backed by French allies, challenge his rule. In this committee, the White Roses and Red Roses must devise the best strategy for seizing the throne at any cost and protecting their power from all threats.
