The Plantagenet Kings 1216 – 1485

Michael Tunnicliffe

The reign of Henry III saw advancements in culture but was also troubled by unrest, while his son Edward I set his sights on conquering Wales and Scotland. The 14th century saw the deposing and murder of two kings, the impact of the Black Death and the Peasants’ Revolt. The 15th century saw the escalating conflict of the Houses of Lancaster and York which resulted in the Wars of the Roses and only ended on Bosworth Field with the victory of the first Tudor monarch Henry VII. This course examines not only the lives of the kings but the society and religion of the high Middle Ages.

Please note: this course is also offered on Thursdays at Crawford House under the title ‘From Henry III to Richard III’.
