The Tudor Rose

War of the Roses

1455 - 1485

The Tudor Rose was a result of Henry Tudor winning the throne of England. For thirty years, the House of York (represented by the white rose) and the House of Lancaster (represented by the red rose) struggled to hold the throne.


After winning the Battle of Bosworth, Henry Tudor became the King of England and Wales. Following this, Henry married Elizabeth of York; this united the two families. As a symbol of this union and end to the struggle, Henry created the Tudor rose to incorporate the White Rose of York and the Red Rose of Lancaster.


Here are our versions of the Tudor Rose.
