Henry VI vs Edward IV

Henry VI takes the crown but he’s crazy, so Margate (from france) took control

Edward, from the House of York, claims he should be king. He is a strong and capable leader, then he defeats Henry VI battle, becoming king. They then go back and forth for years about who should be king.

Is Richard Guilty?

We don’t know for sure, but we think that Richard killed his nephews to become king. Two young kids' skeletons were found under the stairs in the London Tower, which could be the young princes.

Battle of Bosworth Field

Henry Tudor defeated Richard III at the battle of Bosworth and then Henry becomes king.
