Lancastrians, Yorkists & The Emerging Tudors with Mark Cottle
Following Richard II’s deposition by Henry IV in 1399, the Lancastrian Kings were to rule England for the next sixty years. After the great successes of Henry V in the Hundred Years War, the failures of his son, Henry VI, precipitated the Wars of the Roses, the fall of the House of Lancaster and the successive reigns of the Yorkist Kings Edward IV and Richard III. This course will examine and assess these two dynasties and the rule of Henry Tudor, the penniless adventurer who, rather against the odds, was to establish a new dynasty that would dominate English politics for over a century. This course will include a day out visiting an appropriate site or
two. Lavishly illustrated with handouts.
