For history prior Principia Moderni II see:'Pre-1450 History of England

In 1450, with help of the popular rebellion of Jack Cade and the noble Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick, Richard of York took over as Richard III of England.

He re-wrote the Magna Carta to have a Parliament with more powers and restore defitively the monarchy under his dynasty. He made exterminated the Lancasters and made peace with the last of them, John II of Castille, of House of Trastamara, by marring his daughter Anne with prince Henry of Castille.

Then, he started a new policy, which objective was to avoid the negative effects of the war with France, by allying himself with Castille, Portugal, the Holy Roman Empire and the States of the Church.

In 1452 the king agreed to call a meeting with Charles VII of France at Rouen to decide the final destiny of the war. Finally a peace treaty was signed with France and Scotland the next year, with England giving the whole Normandy (except for the offshore) to France, and giving Portugal the islans of Borhou, Ortac and Renonquet, though the english police still supervises and controls the commerce and military of the islands.

In 1454 England joined Frederick V of Austria in his war against the pretender Albert VI and his allies. England also supported Brandenburg in its attempts to gain freedom from Luxemborug, a state supporting Albert VI, and the Grand Duchy of Bavaria in its own attempts to unify the bavarian territories.

After a long war, Albert VI signed a treaty for which he obtained the Duchy of Tyrolia and Frederick III kept the throne of eastern Austria. Brandenburg did gain independence and Bavaria unified as one.

King Richard III died in 1460 and was succeded for Edward IV.


Richard III of York reorganized the parliament to include more commons and less french-influences nobles and clergymen.

There are three estates that meet together and vote one vote to each person.

  • Nobility; the majority of the Parliament. They're presided by the Lords Chancellor.
    • Barons, Lords, Earls and Dukes; noblemen with fees under their rule and autonomy, who elect their own representatives, or themselves.
    • Peers, knights, gentlemen, courtly nobility and non-feudal nobles; they vote in each fee to elect their representative.
  • Commons; they're organized by property. They're presided by a Speaker of the Commons.
    • Wealthymen; they own lands or are high dignataries of the Crown, they have feudal lords in debt with them, they pay higher taxes or help commercing between lands; they elect the Borough Commissioners.
    • Middlemen; they have material property, stables, little businesses such as bars, lodging houses, &c... They elect a commissioner for each 'land' of the fee.
    • Lowmen; they serve in agriculture and elect the Fee Commissioners.
  • Spirituals; elected by the Pope or the owners of the most important dioceses. They're presided by the Primate, but they necessarily have to be:
    • Cardinals
    • Prelates
    • Archbishops
    • Bishops

They ratify the electionsof the high court officicers such as the Lord High Steward (who presides the Parliament if the king is absent), and many decissions of the king in matters of taxation, administrative division, treason trials, tribunals' officers' elections, concession of rights, merriage, &c...

The only one with power to veto any action of the Parliament is the Pope, who can also preside over the spirituals. But, for this, he needs to be fisicly present in the session.

The parliament meets three times a year (February or March; June or July and October or November), and can be cummoned at any time by the King or the Pope.

To avoid such a crisis as the War of Two Roses was, Richard III gave the Parliament the power to elect a Regnet Stewars, if a Stewars was not already chosen by the last King, and decide over succession matters.
