The War of the Roses 

Leonardo da Vinci and Ludovico Sforza were aliases of the Angevin Plantagenet (planta genista) crown. The origin of the name Leonardo is a reference to spikenard (leo nardo), the oil used by Mary, sister (alter ego) of Lazarus (Cyrus), to anoint (awaken) the Christ. Vinci means evince. Ludovico Sforza is a pseudonym meaning effort of Lud, or force of Luke, if you prefer.
