Britain’s Bloody Crown

The true story of the Wars of the Roses

Presented by acclaimed historian Dan Jones (Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty), this four-part documentary reveals the true history of the Wars of the Roses like never before.

Across the documentary series, Dan combines unique storytelling with high-end scripted drama to reveal the true story of the Wars of the Roses.

The tale he tells is not the one you’ll find in the history books. It’s a story of human frailties, rivalries, forced hands and blind luck that drove England into decades of violence.

Each episode focuses on pivotal characters and the moments in their lives when the world shook and history changed forever.
