Richard III

The astonishing discovery of Richard III under a car park in Leicester has caused waves of excitement across the archaeological world. His remains lost since the 16th century, Richard was the last English King to die in Battle and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty.

Over the centuries the King who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field has been much written about and mythologised, probably most famously by Shakespeare in his eponymous play. Richard III remains to this day a contentious and enigmatic figure.

We have celebrated the discovery of Richard with a newly commissioned portrait. After much research and with new information coming from the dig in Leicester, we truly believe that this is the most accurate painting of the former King to date.
