This title contains a new and uniquely detailed exploration of Richard III's last 150 days 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 agenda It also re-examines the aftermath of Bosworth the treatment of Richard's body his burial and the construction of his tomb And there is the fascinating story of why, and how, Richard III's family tree was traced until a relative was found, alive and well, in Canada Now, with the discovery of Richard's skeleton at the Greyfrairs Priory in Leicester, England, John Ashdown-Hill explains how his book inspired the dig and completes Richard III's fascinating story, giving details of how Richard died, and how the DNA link to a living relative of the king allowed the royal body to be identified
