The Tudor Rose: 22nd August 1485 – The Battle of Bosworth Field was won by the Lancastrians. Their leader Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty by his victory and subsequent marriage to a Yorkist princess. His opponent Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle. Historians consider Bosworth Field to mark the end of the Plantagenet dynasty, making it one of the defining moments of English and Welsh history.

Elizabeth I by Bettes. Here we can clearly see the blackwork embroidery on the Queen's sleeves. The Tudor rose is prominent. When the heraldic Tudor rose appears on her ladies' clothing it is more than likely that the item has come from the Queen. Wearing an item of dress given to you by the Queen would signal that you stood high in her favour.
