The Wars of the Roses A Royal History of England Series – an easy to read coffee table book with plenty of well known pictures of people and places a good introduction to the wars, it has a chapter on each of the kings involved in the build up to the Wars of the Roses. Richardson, Geoffrey. A Pride of Bastards: A History of the Beaufort Family and their Part in the Wars of the Roses. The Wars of the Roses: A Concise History.

Given the Stanleys’ later prominence and their part in the battle of Bosworth (1485) – playing a critical role in Henrv Tudor’s victory over the Yorkist Richard III – the landscape of the second half of the 15th century might have been very different had Henry taken umbrage in 1459. During the incursion, the Lancastrians seized Alnwick, Dunstanburgh and Bamburgh Castles. Two were swiftly surrendered after Lancastrian defeats, but Sir Ralph Grey remained at Bamburgh Castle.

The Wars of the Roses were a series of bloody civil wars for the throne of England between two competing royal families: the House of York and the House of Lancaster, both members of the age-old royal Plantagenet family. Waged between 1455 and 1485, the Wars of the Roses earned its flowery name because the white rose was the badge of the Yorks, and the red rose was the badge of the Lancastrians. On May 22, 1455, Richard of York, aligned with Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, marched against Henry at St. Albans. After failed negotiations, the brief yet vicious battle raged through the town’s streets and left Somerset dead and Henry wounded. The Houses of York and Lancaster both traced their lineage to the sons of Edward III of the House of Plantagenet, who ruled as England’s king from 1327 until 1377. The Yorks were descended from the female relatives.

The first phase of the Wars of the Roses was fought between Henry VI of Lancaster and Richard, Duke of York. At the Battle of St. Albans in 1455, Henry and his Lancastrian supporters were defeated by Richard. Queen Margaret fled to France and vowed to bring back French mercenaries for her husband. In 1459, Margaret returned to England and defeated Richard’s Yorkist armies at the Battle of Ludlow. Richard fled to Ireland. The next nine years were the most violent. Many of the Lancastrian supporters were defeated and Henry VI was thrown into the Tower of London.

The War of the Roses was the armed conflict between groups of the English nobility in the years 1455-1485 in the struggle for power between the supporters of the two Dynasty branches Plantagenet – Lancaster, and York. The war ended in the victory of Henry Tudor from the side branch of the Lancaster House, which founded a dynasty that ruled England and Wales for 117 years. The war brought considerable destruction and disaster to the people of England. During the conflict, a large number of representatives of the English feudal aristocracy died

The exploits of Richard Neville, erstwhile supporter of both the Lancastrian and the Yorkist causes, have somewhat overshadowed those of other members of his family. Richardson pays his due to the most notorious of the Nevilles, but also acknowledges the significance of such figures as Ralph Neville, Lord of Raby, and Ralph, first Earl of Westmorland. The book is written with gusto, in similar style to the popular Deceivers , but its content is rooted in hard evidence: the author looks to contemporary and near-contemporary source material, rendering the volume not only enjoyable but informative.

Quttaro
Geoffrey Richardson has provided excellent historical research for those interested in the Neville family and the conflicts in 15th century England "wars of the roses."
Light out of Fildon
The Lordly Ones is a must have for any reader of history, especially those just beginning the journey of researching the War of the Roses and the powerful Neville family and the critical role they played in it.

Richardson, skips the prose and gets straight to the point in an easy to read fashion that never skims over the details, yet makes the issues more striking and easy to recall with his charts and maps. He's also cleary comfortable offering his own opinion while laying the background on this complex family that turned into the ultimate family of 'players' by a series of masterful marriages.

Though Richard Neville aka The Kingmaker is the best known figure in the family it was his daughter Anne who wore a crown through her mariage to Richard III. And Richardson, doesn't just linger on the most famous of the Nevilles; he carefully takes the reader through their entire history in concise able fashion.
