KS3 Wars of the Roses Resources

The Wars of the Roses were civil wars between 1455 and 1485 for the throne of England. The Lancasters were represented by a red rose, while the Yorks were a white rose. Over the course of 30 years, the outbreaks of conflict managed to eliminate every male heir from both families - taking the surplus to the opposite extreme.

Learn more about the Wars of the Roses, including the causes, battles, and outcome of the Wars of the Roses, and the key figures of the houses of York and Lancaster with our KS3 resources.
