'Conscience is but a word that cowards use, devised at first to keep the strong in awe' The Duke of Gloucester plots and butchers his way to the throne, murdering his own young nephews in the Tower. But his reign is cut short on Bosworth Field, marking the end of England's slide towards chaos which began in Henry VI Part I. The War of the Roses reaches its brutal climax with the advent of Shakespeare's most notorious monarch.
