The Battle of Bosworth - King Richard IIIs Charge by Graham Turner
After three decades of civil strife between the Royal houses of Lancaster and York, now known as the Wars of the Roses, the army of the Yorkist King, Richard III, confronted the invading force of Henry Tudor, the Lancastrian claimant to the English throne, on the 22nd August 1485 near Market Bosworth in Leicestershire. With the two armies locked together in fierce hand to hand combat, Henry, surrounded by only a small body of men, becomes isolated from his main force. Seeing a chance to end the battle with one decisive stroke, Richard leads his household knights and retainers in a thunderous charge, seeking out his adversary. The unfortunate Sir William Brandon is unhorsed by the Kings lance and Tudors Red Dragon standard falls to the ground. To the left, Sir John Cheyney spurs his horse on to challenge the King and Henry Tudors mount rears up, startled by the deafening noise of battle. However, the hitherto uncommitted forces of Sir William Stanley can be seen approaching and their intervention on Tudors side will lead to the defeat and death of Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England, and the succession of Henry Tudor as Henry VII.
