Classic Renaissance: The Tudor Rose

Published on 13 June 2024 at 15:20

If you appreciate the Renaissance or have recently attended a Renaissance-themed fair, you've likely noticed a recurring symbol. While it may seem like a popular motif for costumes, there's actually a fascinating story behind it!

This emblem is known as the Tudor Rose and symbolized the unity and reconciliation of the Houses of York & Lancaster during the Wars of the Roses under the Tudor Dynasty. This dynasty governed England and Ireland from 1485 to 1603.

The Tudor Rose is a combo of the Red Rose of the House of Lancaster & the White Rose of the house of York.

The union of the houses of Lancaster and York was sealed with the marriage of King Henry VII to Elizabeth of York, effectively uniting the warring factions.
