In 1392 Richard II moved the centre of his government to York and made York a county in its own right, yet by 1400 he had been usurped by his cousin Henry IV. Imprisoned in Pontefract Castle, by the end of February 1400 all accounts agree Richard II had met his death - but exactly how he died is disputed. This day course will examine the primary sources to uncover the theories about Richard II’s death and who secretly ordered his murder. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
