Divided Loyalty - Wars of the Roses print from a painting by Graham Turner Divided Loyalty Ref: Gic-G315

Ludlow Castle - Autumn, 1459.

A soldier from the Calais Garrison considers the awkward dilemma he finds himself in: sworn to protect the King, yet now expected to take up arms against him by his captain, the Earl of Warwick, who has joined the Duke of York in his stand against Henry VI and his court favourites. He proudly wears the cross of St. George - the livery of England - while holding a red sash bearing Warwick's badge of the ragged staff he is expected to put on. Where does his loyalty lie - is he prepared to follow his captain in open rebellion against the Crown, to become a traitor?

It was the Calais garrison's eventual decision not to turn against their King that was a major factor in the Yorkist failure at the Battle of Ludford Bridge, forcing the Duke of York, and the Earls of March, Warwick and Salisbury to flee into exile.

Graham Turner's painting highlights the complex shifting alliances that typify the Wars of the Roses, and how, although it is kings and nobles who dominate our history, their disagreements and power struggles affected ordinary people trying to survive in these uncertain and often violent times.
