Richard III - 1483-1485
Season 1 Episode 5 The History Channel April 9, 2011

Richard III was the King of England from 1483 until his death and the last king from the House of York. After the death of his brother Edward IV, Richard briefly governed as a regent for Edward's son Edward V, but he imprisoned Edward and his brother Richard in the Tower and acquired the throne for himself. A rebellion rose against Richard and he fell in the Battle of Bosworth Field, where he faced the Earl of Richmond (later Henry VII). Shakespeare's play Richard III has made his name particularly famous.
