Stoke Field Resources
The Battle of Stoke Field on 16 June 1487 may be considered the last battle of the Wars of the Roses. The Battle of Bosworth, two years previously, had established King Henry VII on the throne, ending the last period of Yorkist rule and initiating that of the Tudors. The Battle of Stoke Field was the decisive engagement in an attempt by leading Yorkists to unseat him in favour of the pretender Lambert Simnel.
