    1455 · Wars of the Roses

    Age 15

    Wars of the Roses was a series of English civil wars for control of the throne of England between the royal families House of Lancaster and the House of York. The name of the war was derived as the red rose was the symbol of the Lancastrians and the white rose was the symbol of the Yorks.

    Name Meaning

    habitational name from Marbury in Great Budworth, or, perhaps, from Marbury cum Quoisley (both in Cheshire). Both placenames derive from Old English mere ‘pool, lake’ + burh ‘fortress’ (dative byrig), ‘stronghold by the lake’.

    variant of Marbrow, itself a variant of Marlborough, a habitational name from Marlborough (Wiltshire), which probably derives from an Old English personal name Mǣrla + Old English beorg ‘hill, mound’.
