VoK 144: The War of the Roses (1455-1487) and ASOIAF


Join Nadia and Bina007 as they discuss parallels between A Song of Ice and Fire and the War of the Roses.  We discuss whether Henry VI was as mad as Aerys II; whether Edward IV was as drunken a lech as Robert Baratheon; how far Richard III echoes Stannis; whether Elizabeth of York used shadow babies to stop her uncle marrying her; and whether Dany will marry Gendry and reunite the realm just as Henry Tudor did.

Spoiler warning: A Song of Ice and Fire, The Princess and the Queen and The Rogue Prince as well as fifteenth century British history.
