The Tudor Rose became the heraldic emblem for the union of the rival Houses of York and Lancaster (owners of the heraldic white rose and red rose, respectively) into the House of Tudor. The Houses had, for 30 years, engaged in the War of the Roses, until Henry VII, descendant of a legitimized branch of the House of Lancaster, captured the throne in battle.  The House of Tudor failed in1603 with the death of the "virgin queen," Elizabeth I, daughter of Henry VIII.
