Who killed Richard III?
The history of a Welshman who claimed that he killed Richard III at Bosworth battlefield, ensuring that Henry Tudor could claim the throne of England and Wales by establishing the reign of the Tudors. A taste of conspiracy, changing sides, love, blood and wealth.
Sir Rhys ap Thomas was ahead of his time in many ways and yet he made the most of his opportunities. Evidence from poets as well as discovering the body of Richard III reinforces the belief that the brave soldier from Dinefwr was the King’s killer. He was honoured and became one of King Henry VII’s leading servants in Wales. Dr Iestyn Jones presents this one hour programme, and uncovers the history of this remarkable soldier.
