By Right or By Might? The Wars of the Roses in the North

Monday 20 April 2020, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

The Wars of the Roses were fought on English soil for over forty years and resulted in the decimation of many Northern noble families. Starting with Henry IV and his usurpation of Richard II we will examine whether these civil wars really were the result of denied inheritance, or the escalation of local feuds between the Nevilles and Percies in the North of England. Were Edward IV and Richard III just pawns in a Neville web of power? Was Richard III really our last Northern King?
