Blood Sisters [electronic Resource]

The Women Behind The Wars Of The Roses.

By Sarah Gristwood

To contemporaries, the Wars of the Roses?the series of dynastic conflicts that tore apart the ruling Plantagenet family in fifteenth-century England?were known collectively as a ?cousins war." The struggle that ultimately brought into being the Tudor dynasty was truly a domestic drama, as fraught and intimate as any family feud before or since. What set the Wars of the Roses apart, of course, was that there was a kingdom at stake. Since the end of the fourteenth century, control of the House of Plantagenet?and the vast territory it ruled in the British Isles?had been claimed by.
