The Last Days of Richard III is a new and detailed exploration of Richard’s last 150 days, based on new evidence and explores the events from the standpoint of Richard himself and his contemporaries.

 

By deliberately avoiding the hindsight knowledge that he will lose the Battle of Bosworth Field, we discover a new Richard:

no passive victim, awaiting defeat and death,

but a king actively pursuing his own policies and agenda.

 

It also re-examines the aftermath of Bosworth: the treatment of Richard’s body; his burial; and the construction of his tomb.

 

John Ashdown-Hill has produced a stimulating and thought-provoking account of the end of Richard’s life. Even readers very familiar with his short life will discover a new and fascinating picture of him.

  • Based on newly discovered evidence and wider insights, the motives underlying these events are explored from the standpoint of Richard and his contemporaries.
  • The story of why and how Richard III’s DNA was rediscovered, alive and well – in Canada.
  • Brand-new DNA research reveals those who are related to Richard III.
  • Unique analysis of Richard III’s last days, based on newly discovered evidence.
