Boasting of the Killing of a King

Rhys ap Thomas: The Fatal Blow?

When the remains of Richard III were found in 2012, it was discovered that he had sustained a number of injuries during the Battle of Bosworth in 1485 where he fought for his crown. 

On examination, it was found that a wound to the bottom of the skull presented a gaping hole, where a halberd had cut part of it away, this wound was not fatal. The wound that would have ended the kings life was one to the base of the skull where a blade penetrated it.

In my blog I write of the evidence that might prove the Welshman did strike the king.
