Principally it involves the reign of Henrys IV V & VI, Edward IV &V & Richard III. In 1485 Henry VII wins the battle of Bosworth defeating Richard III.

Which battle did the monarch win that brought about the end of the war of the roses?
Many people believe that the Wars of the Roses ended with the Battle of Bosworth, won by Henry VII against Richard III in 1485, although this is not true, as the Lambert Simnel rebellion caused Henry VII to fight one more battle, the Battle of Stoke on June 4th 1487. Although this was the last battle in the Wars of the Roses, Henry VII still faced many threats from Yorkist claimants who still wanted the throne, which means that many historian believe the Wars of the Roses did not truly end until the acession of Henry's son, Henry VIII.

What were King Henry VII's failures?
King Henry VII did many good things including restoring stability and power following the Wars of the Roses. He was the last English King to win the crown on the battlefield rather than by the usual inheritance. Toward the end of his reign he was spending money so wantonly that it bordered on illegal.
