The Wars of the Roses (1455-85) saw the end of Plantagenet rule in England and Wales, and the accession of the Tudor dynasty to the throne. It is sometimes seen as the end of the Middle Ages in England, and the start of the modern era, and it paved the way for the reigns of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I. A surprising number of historic sites from this turbulent period survive: battlefields, castles, churches, monasteries.

I guess I could have told this story as a sickly sweet romance with me as the sugar mama splashing money around Niagara Falls to please my girl. It still would have been objectively true, but it wouldn’t have been the complete and unadulterated truth.If I’m going for honesty I might as well go all the way… even if the reality makes me seem jealous and immature and maybe a little nuts.

Author: Kathryn Warner
Narrator: Corrie James

The Wars of the Roses didn’t start on the battlefield: Blood Roses traces it back to the beginning. Starting in 1245 with the founding of the House of Lancaster, Kathryn Warner follows a twisted path of political intrigue, bloody war, and fascinating characters over 200 years. From the Barons’ Wars to the overthrowing of Edward II, Eleanor of Castile to Isabella of France, and true love to Loveday, Blood Roses reframes some of the biggest events of the medieval era-not as stand-alone conflicts, but as part of a long-running family feud that would have drastic consequences.

My Kingdom for a Horse The War of the Roses [Audiobook]


English | ASIN: B09WB4ZG5W | 2022 | 6 hours and 23 minutes | MP3 | M4B | `176 MB
Ed West’s My Kingdom for a Horse illuminates the bloody war fought for thirty long years between the descendants of King Edward III in a battle for the throne. Named after the emblems used by the two leading families, the Houses of York and Lancaster, the title of the conflict gives it a romantic feel that probably wasn’t as apparent to those on the battlefield having swords shoved into their eyes. And, for all the lovely heraldry and glamorous costumes of the era, the war saw the complete breakdown of the medieval code of chivalry in which prisoners were spared, which makes it even better drama. In 1460-61 alone, twelve noblemen were killed in the field and six were beheaded off it, removing a third of the English peerage. My Kingdom for a Horse is an ideal introduction for anyone interested in one of history’s most insane wars.
