In the previous animated historical documentary on the Wars of Roses, we have covered the Battle of Towton of 1461 CE. The winner - the first York King Edward IV of England was still in a precarious position as his Lancastrian enemies Henry VI of England and Margaret of Anjou were still eager to fight for the throne, while his closest ally Richard of Warwick was eager to increase his influence. On top of that Edward had to deal with Scotland and found himself in the middle of the conflict between the French King Louis XI of France and the Duke of Burgundy Charles the Bold.
All this tension made the second phase of the Wars of Roses inevitable and the renewed conflict peaked at the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury in 1471.
