The Last White Rose
n 1485, the English crown was won in the battle of Bosworth Field, ending the Wars of the Roses which had ravaged the whole of England during the 15th century. The Tudors had gained the throne but their hold on power would always be precarious. As long as the Yorkist faction remained, Henry VII and Henry VIII would never be safe. The Tudor dynasty was anything but a period of security and the spectre of the White Rose haunted their reigns.
In The Last White Rose, highly acclaimed historian Desmond Seward, explores the world of plots, conspiracies and pretenders that threatened the crown and affected the course of English history. The narrative include the rise and desperate fall of Perkin Warback, the first White Rose pretender, Edmund de la Pole, recognised by the French as the true King of England, his younger brother, Richard, a mercenary who was funded by Paris to invade England on two occasions as well as a host of descendents including the Dukes and Earls of Buckingham, Exeter, Montague, Surrey and Norfolk.
