AVAILABLE NOW – An Epic Battle Retold with Wars of the Roses Stamps from Royal Mail!

Relive some of the historic events from the fifteenth century battle for the throne in England with the new Wars of the Roses Special Stamps issue!

The Wars of the Roses is referred to as the series of dynastic civil wars fought between the houses of Lancaster and York for the English throne during the fifteenth century.

Its name derives from the two opposing houses who battled for ultimate supremacy during epic years of conflict – the House of Lancaster who sported a red rose as its badge and the House of York, who adorned a white rose.

This historic event in British history is now being retold by the Royal Mail with the Wars of the Roses Stamps issue – a beautifully illustrated series of stamp designs that re-captures the most pivotal moments of the Wars of the Roses which would go on to define the Tudor dynasty.
