The summer of 1483 was a spectacular celebration of the power of medieval English monarchy
The joint crowning of King Richard III and Queen Anne in the summer of 1483 was a spectacular celebration of the power of medieval English monarchy, yet one that was short lived after Richard III lost his crown just over two years later at the Battle of Bosworth.
The coronation maintained the long traditions of royal pageantry and religious ceremony, but was also a key political step in stabilising the country after the discord and turbulence of civil war.
Catch a glimpse of how Richard III intended to build his kingship in an insecure age of rivalries, warfare and depositions.
