BY NIGEL GREEN
Richard III’s death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 is traditionally regarded as the final chapter in the Wars of the Roses ending the decades of conflict between the Houses of York and Lancaster.
So decisive was that battle that its victor, Henry Tudor, might well have believed there would be little opposition when he seized the throne of England as Henry VII.
There was, however, one man who refused to accept the verdict of Bosworth. A man who was not only loyal to the memory of his dead friend, Richard III, but also to the promise he had made to him: to overthrow the usurper Tudor and recapture the crown for the House of York.
This, then, is the story of Francis Lovell after Bosworth and his mission to honour the vow he had made to Richard III.
