Previously published as The King's Grave. NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING SALLY HAWKINS AND STEVE COOGAN. The official inside story of the discovery of history's most controversial monarch. On 22 August 1485, Richard III was killed at Bosworth Field, the last king of England to die in battle. His victorious opponent, Henry Tudor, went on to found one of our most famous ruling dynasties. Fifty years later, the king's grave was lost and Richard III's reputation buried under a mound of Tudor propaganda. Philippa Langley and Michael Jones trace the remarkable story of the search for the lost king, leading to the incredible moment when the 500-year-old mystery was solved by Philippa Langley as his remains were uncovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The Lost King is the astonishing true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country's most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial king's in England's history.
