A/S HISTORY The Triumph of the Yorkists 1461 WOMEN OF THE WARS :Alice Chaucer Duchess of Suffolk

This topic is an activity guide of AQA History Unit 2B The Wars of the Roses and part of the Women of the Wars tasks usually set in class and for homework. However, it can be used for any exam board running the Wars of the Roses module.It is usually set as a task whilst studying 'The Triumph of the Yorkists 1461-71' module.It is an A* grade response to the task set in schools to research the women of the wars, in this case Alice Chaucer Duchess of Suffolk.This topic is a classic case study of politics, motivations and consequences during the Wars of the Roses, which is why it is usually set as a homework task.The context to take into account here is:1. From where do the sources of power come within a state? (economic, social and political). 2. How do those who support kings fare when the regime changes? The de la Poles often did not fare so well at all (see their guide) but Alice weathered the political storm pretty well, escaping the destitution and marriage pawnage that often faced her fellow noblewomen.3. What was the impact of the dynastic/monarchic instability on the general populus of all class levels? 4. What caused the political breakdowns that led to the Wars of the Roses? (political primarily) And in depth: Here we will look at another ‘woman of the wars’- Alice Chaucer Duchess of Suffolk.

Elizabeth served both York and Tudor, escaping the destitution and marriage ‘sales’ that often faced her fellow noblewomen. Even late on in her life while in ‘retirement’ at the Minorities, she had the funds to buy the wardship of Gilbert, heir of Thomas Pynchbeke, from the Earl of Oxford.3.

Why did he ‘change sides’ from Lancaster to York mid battle? This was not a unique occurrence during civil war, and civil war was commonplace historically, so we need to look at his personal motives as much as background on the period itself.4.
