On Saturday 4th May 1471 the 'Wars of the Roses' came to a head at Tewkesbury. The Yorkist army commanded by Edward IV, and his brother, the future Richard III, chased down and defeated the Lancastrian army of Queen Margaret and her son Edward, Prince of Wales. The outcome crushed the hope that the heir of the House of Lancaster would again take the throne of England.
