The fifteenth century was a turbulent one. As in the twelfth century, an element of dynastic instability was injected into English politics at the end of the fourteenth century which contributed to domestic turmoil and encouraged foreign intrigue and intervention. ‘Still at War, 1390–1490’ examines these turbulent times and the impact of internal wars, war with France, and the dynastic war that is known as the War of the Roses. Britain faced a notable resentment from the Welsh and later the English. By the late 1480s, England's magnates were war-weary, their ranks depleted, and their territorial power weakened or destroyed.
