Gallery: In Search of the Grave of Richard III

Richard was famously killed at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, after being unhorsed and outnumbered while vying with Henry Tudor for the crown of England – an event recorded in the final scenes of Shakespeare’s play. As well as being considered the last monarch of the Medieval period, Richard III was also the last king of England to die in battle.
