However, it was on this day in 1452, a few miles west of Bosworth, that Richard was born at Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire to Richard, Duke of York and Cecily Neville. He was the couples fourth son.
Photographs one was taken at Fotheringhay, the second at Richard III Visitor Centre in Leicester are both my images. The Fotheringhay Castle is Matthew's.
Matthew also has a new book our entitled Richard III: Loyalty Binds Me.
