The story re-tells the infamous “War of the Roses” from the standpoint of the women involved in the feud. Those women were Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville. They were part of the feud between the House of York and the House of Lancaster that took place in 1464. The feud in question was centered on who was the rightful King of England.
