Richard wasn’t the only king to die horribly….

We all know the grim, but glorious way poor Richard met his death, his body maltreated at the callous behest of Henry Tudor – who was destined to die in his own bed. He isn’t listed in the link below, but his was not an easy death.  

A lot of other monarchs died wretchedly too, as you’ll read – be warned though, Richard is reckoned guilty of all the usual ‘crimes’.

New artwork featuring Richard….

Bosworth by Victor Ambrus

For those of us who wish Time Team were still with us, here is a reminder of their artist, Victor Ambrus. I loved his illustrations, and now he has painted his view of Bosworth. A lovely work of art.
