In August 1485, Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England, rode out to meet Henry Tudor, the challenger to his throne. On the 20th August, the King reached the East Midlands town of Leicester where he and his entourage spent the night. The following morning, they departed Leicester for Bosworth Field. Here they camped out before meeting the Lancastrian army in battle on the 22nd August.
At that battle, Richard was defeated and killed. Shortly afterwards, a cavalcade of Henry Tudor’s men retraced the defeated King’s his last steps and returned to Leicester. In their midst was a packhorse, draped with the body of Richard himself.
