I know this much. The Jacobite supporters used the white cockade on their bonnets as a symbol to support the Bonnie Prince Charlie. Supposedly, he had a white rose on his tricorn to promote his status and cause. Not sure how accurate that is, but I love white roses either way and my sis had them growing in her garden and I photographed them as I felt they would make for good photography! laugh.gif laugh.gif

The war of the roses smile.gif I forget the names right off involved in that battle for the English throne. I'll think about them sometime late tonight or tomorrow and have to get up and post it.

One side used the white rose, the other the red.

Big one.

The War of the Roses was a civil war in England that lasted from 1455-1487. These thirty years of warfare were even more destructive to England than the Hundred Years War had been in the previous century. (Most of the fighting in the Hundred Years War took place in France, which meant most of the military damage affected the French peasantry rather than the English. In the War of the Roses, most of the fighting occurred in England, and thus the loss of life and property was much greater.) It was a struggle between the families descended through Edward III and the families descended from Henry IV to claim the throne. The last Angevin ruler, King Richard II died without an heir. He had been overthrown and murdered by Henry IV (Henry Bolingbroke, who was of the House of Lancaster through his father John of Gaunt). Henry IV's descendants and their supporters were the Lancastrian faction. The other branch, descended from Edward IV, were associated with families in the North of England, particularly the House of York and Richard of York. They are called the Yorkist faction.


The name comes from the badges of arms worn by the two factions. The symbol of the House of York is a white rose. The symbol of the House of Lancaster is a red rose. The servants of each house wore emblems with these flowers on their liveries (servant uniforms). The actual phrase "War of the Roses" doesn't appear until Shakespeare's time, but Shakespeare does make use of this flower imagery at the end of Henry VI: Part Three and in Richard III.

Endgame:
Henry Tudor (soon to be King Henry VII), earl of Richmond, lands in Wales on August 7, 1485 to challenge Richard III for the crown. Richard moves to meet Henry's army south of the village of Market Bosworth. After the armies engage, Lord Thomas Stanley and his brother Sir William switch sides and fight for Henry. Henry defeats the Yorkist forces, Richard is killed, and Henry ushers in the rule of the house of Tudor effectively ending the Wars of the Roses.

Henry VII spends the next two years wiping out any other claimants to the throne.

Select "my account" from the top of the main page. One the menu bar to the left you will see "personal profile", and under that "avatar settings." Select that and you will see the various options for selecting, linking to, or uploading your avatar. Hope this helps. smile.gif

The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859

Education: that which reveals to the wise, and conceals from the stupid, the vast limits of their knowledge.
~Mark Twain

]AN EXCERPT FROM A POEM THAT I WROTE ON 10/11/07

WE CAN'T CHANGE WHAT WE HAVE DONE....
BUT ONLY TAKE A LESSON FROM EACH EXPERIENCE
AND MAKE THE MOST OF EACH MINUTE THAT WE HAVE LEFT
AND TELL OURELVES THAT IT IS OK TO LIVE, LAUGH AND CRY.....
PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE ALL WORK TOGETHER
TO GIVE US WHAT WE CAN AND SHOULD EXPERIENCE
AND WE NEED TO CHERISH ALL OF THE TIME
THAT WE SPEND WITH OURSELVES AND OTHERS MAKING THE MOST OF THE SPECIAL MEMORIES THAT ARE OURS..
AND THE ONES THAT WE HAVE YET TO CREATE WITH THE PEOPLE THAT WE HAVEN'T MET!!!!![/SIZE]
