Their true rise to fame, however, came in the 17th century, when after the fall of king Henry VI they fought the first English Civil War during the years 1633-47. The war also was called "War of the 'fords", because their main opponents were the Cliffords under William of Clifford. At the end, Humphrey I became the new king.
