1454 and England is on the brink of civil war,

As ailing King Henry VI lies senseless, Richard, Duke of York and Protector of the Realm, asserts his own claim to the throne. All who support Henry and his Queen Margaret must be silenced.

While Margaret struggles to defeat Richard's conspiracy, supporters of these rival houses of Lancaster and York clash, throwing the country into turmoil.

Who will win the fight for the throne? And what will each side sacrifice in the name of England?
