The Wars of the Roses

  • A. L. Rowse


If we are pedants we should not call them the Wars of the Roses. It is not contemporary nomenclature, and it seems that, though the white rose was used among other Yorkist emblems, the red rose of Lancaster did not appear till later. The apposition of the white rose and the red, and their union in the Tudor line, was very much a Tudor theme.
