The French Connection: Richard III & the Battle of Bosworth:

To coincide with the launch of Wars of the Roses expert Mike Ingram’s new book “Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth” at the 2019 Bosworth Medieval Festival. Mike is pleased to be giving his new talk. It will focus upon the relationship between Richard III and France and how the intrigues of Louis XI and his daughter Anne shaped the final outcome at the Battle of Bosworth. We will then look at the battle itself, the part played by the French and how they were written out of the story by Tudor chroniclers.

There will be book signing after the talk for Mike’s new publication ‘Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth’

There will be book signing opportunities after the talk.
