Battle of Bosworth 1485

Model in the Bosworth Museum

 

King Richard spots the usurper, Henry Tudor, out in the open and exposed. Anxious for a speedy end to the battle, he charges with a group of his elite knights (bottom right), only to find himself exposed, and then overwhelmed........losing his horse, the battle, his crown and his life.

 

There is an excellent Richard III "whodunit" by Josephine Tey, titled The Daughter of Time.

A classic case of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
