Overview

A year after Richard III’s death, a boy appeared claiming to be his heir and the rightful King of England. In 1487, in a unique ceremony, this boy was crowned in Dublin Cathedral, despite the Tudor government insisting that his real name was Lambert Simnel and that he was a mere pretender to the throne. Now,  using new discoveries, little-known evidence and insight, historian John Ashdown-Hill seeks the truth behind the 500-year-old story. He also presents a link between Lambert Simnel’s story and that of George, Duke of Clarence, the brother of Richard III. The book sheds new light on the fate of the Princes in the Tower, before raising the possibility of using DNA to clarify the identity of key characters in the story.
