The War of the Roses is one of the bloodiest civil wars in history. Fought over control of the English throne in the mid-to-late fifteenth century, the battle was a civil war between supporters of two rival cadet branches of the royal House of Plantagenet.
The House of Lancaster and House of York bought thought they have right to rule England. And the main cause for the war was the incompetent rule of Henry VI of England.
The War ended in August 1485 when Henry Tudor defeated Richard III at the battle of Bosworth. Yet Henry would never become king and founded the Tudor dynasty without the help of his mother, Margaret Beaufort.
This documentary takes a look at her role in the war and how she shaped the history of England. Margaret embarked upon a bold and risky plan to place her son on the throne. This is the story of her plan.
