    Travel Journal from New Zealand Wellington, New Zealand | Thu Jun 03, 2010

    The Wars of the Roses were a series of Medieval English civil wars fought between the houses of Lancaster and York.  The red rose represented the House of Lancaster, and the white rose the house of York.  The wars were fought over succession; both houses had a claim to the throne through Edward III.  They eventually ended with Henry Tudor, the Earl of Richmond, as victor.  He became king, and founded the House of …
