The Wars of the Roses were central to 15th century English history. A quarrel between the families of York and Lancaster over the right to occupy the English throne brought on a series of harsh civil wars in England in the years 1455 to 1485. The emblem of the Yorkists was a white rose and that of the Lancastrians a red rose. Because of this the wars were called the Wars of the Roses.
