Wars of the Roses: A Historical Series by Conn Iggulden
Wars of the Roses is a series of historical novels by Conn Iggulden that retells the story of the dynastic struggle between the houses of Lancaster and York for the throne of England. The series consists of four books: Stormbird, Trinity, Bloodline, and Ravenspur. Each book covers a different period of the conflict, from the reign of Henry VI to the rise of the Tudors.
Stormbird is the first book in the series and introduces the main characters and events that spark the civil war. Henry VI, a weak and pious king, is manipulated by his ambitious wife Margaret of Anjou and his corrupt advisors. He agrees to cede his lands in France to Charles VII in exchange for a peace treaty and a marriage alliance. However, this decision angers his nobles, especially Richard, Duke of York, who has a strong claim to the throne. Richard leads a rebellion against Henry, supported by his allies Warwick, Salisbury, and Norfolk. Meanwhile, Henry's cousin Jack Cade leads a popular uprising in London, demanding reforms and justice.
The book follows the lives of several fictional characters as well, such as Derry Brewer, a spy and assassin for Henry; Thomas Woodchurch, a knight who fights for York; and Margaret Annette, a young French woman who becomes Henry's mistress. The book also features historical figures such as Joan of Arc, William de la Pole, and John Talbot.
Stormbird is a gripping and thrilling novel that brings to life the turbulent and bloody era of the Wars of the Roses. Iggulden combines historical accuracy with vivid storytelling and creates a compelling portrait of the characters and their motivations. Fans of historical fiction will enjoy this book and its sequels.Trinity is the second book in the series and continues the story of the Wars of the Roses. The book focuses on the events of 1454-1461, when Henry VI suffers a mental breakdown and Richard, Duke of York, becomes the protector of the realm. However, Henry's wife Margaret of Anjou refuses to accept York's authority and raises an army to fight for her husband's rights. York is supported by his sons Edward and George, and his nephew Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, known as "the Kingmaker". The book depicts the battles of St Albans, Blore Heath, Ludford Bridge, Northampton, Wakefield, Mortimer's Cross, and Towton, where York's son Edward defeats Margaret's forces and becomes King Edward IV.
Bloodline is the third book in the series and follows the reign of Edward IV and the challenges he faces from his enemies and his allies. The book covers the period of 1461-1471, when Edward consolidates his power and marries Elizabeth Woodville, a commoner with a large and ambitious family. His marriage alienates his cousin Warwick, who switches sides and joins forces with Margaret of Anjou and her son Edward, Prince of Wales. Warwick invades England and briefly restores Henry VI to the throne, but Edward returns with an army and defeats Warwick at the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury. The book also explores the relationship between Edward's brothers George, Duke of Clarence, and Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who will later become King Richard III.
Ravenspur is the fourth and final book in the series and concludes the saga of the Wars of the Roses. The book spans the years 1471-1485, when Edward IV rules England peacefully until his sudden death in 1483. His young son Edward V inherits the throne, but his uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, usurps him and declares himself King Richard III. Richard faces opposition from Henry Tudor, a distant relative of Henry VI who claims to be the rightful king. Henry gathers support from France and Wales and lands in England with an army. The book culminates in the battle of Bosworth Field, where Richard is killed and Henry becomes King Henry VII, ending the war and founding the Tudor dynasty. ec8f644aee
