The Battle of Towton as dramatised in Shakespeare's Henry VI. The Battle, fought on March 29, 1461 near Towton in Yorkshire during the Wars of the Roses, resulted in a decisive Yorkist victory. It has been described as the 'largest and bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil'. This particular battle between the Houses of York and Lancaster brought about a monarchical change in England, whereby Edward IV displaced Henry VI as King of England, driving the Lancastrians and his key supporters out of the country. In 1929, the Towton Cross was erected on the battlefield to commemorate the event. Various archaeological remains and mass graves related to the battle were found in the area centuries after the engagement. The King on a battle field, sitting beside his horses, contemplating the senselessness of war and gesturing sadly towards a father who holds the dead body of the son he has just killed on his knee, while to the right a son weeps over his father who he has killed, and on the far left, the queen rides up, looking back towards the battle.
