15th Century

The 15th Century commenced with the Epiphany Rising; an attempt to restore Richard II King England to throne. Its failure resulted in Richard II King England death, as well as that of its leaders including Richard II King England half-brother John Holland 1st Duke Exeter.
When Henry V King England succeeded in 1413 he re-started the Hundred Years War. The Battle of Agincourt the English apogee. Thereafter Joan of Arc's one-year campaign re-invigorated the French and saw the gradual decline of English possessions and influence, and its last battle, the Battle of Castillon, in 1453.
When the English stopped fighting the French they started fighting each other.
The Wars of the Roses started around 1450 and ended in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth (arguably 1487 Battle of Stoke Field), and the subsequent succession to the English Crown of the Tudor Family. The traditional Lancaster vs York more acccurately a first war between the Lancaster and Beaufort fanmilies against the York and Neville families, and a second war between Lancaster and Neville families against York.
The first war of the Wars of the Roses from Jan 1460 to Mar 1461 saw the only remaining member of the House of Lancaster Henry VI King England supported by his legitmised cousins the Beauforts against the House of York supported by the Neville family, in particular, Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick and his brother John Neville 1st Marquess Montagu.
After Edward IV King England succeeded in 1461 the York and Neville families started fighting each other. Edward IV King England marriage to Elizabeth Woodville a catastrophe. Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick had been negotiating for Edward IV King England to marry a French Princess. The increasing influence of the Woodville family resulted in a corresponding descrease in the Richard "Kingmaker" Neville 16th Earl Warwick influence. The second war of the Wars of the Roses from Mar 1470 to May 1471 saw Edward IV King England against an unlikely Lancaster-Neville alliance.
When Edward IV King England died in 1483 his youngest brother Richard III King England succeeded. Edward IV King England sons were barred from the succession as a consequence of their being illegitimate as a consequence of Edward IV King England having married previously. It all hinges whether you believe Robert Stillington Bishop Bath and Wells was telling the truth when he told Richard III King England he conducted the earlier marriage. The middle brother George York 1st Duke Clarence son Edward "Last Plantagenet" York 17th Earl Warwick was also barred from the succession as a result of his father's attainer. Richard III King England short reign of two years and two months ended at the Battle of Bosworth where the victorious Henry VII King England and Ireland succeeded to the English throne.
