"Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once."
The Battle of Bosworth Field was NOT won by Henry Tudor but the victory was a staged one served to him by his ambitious mother, her power-hungry husband and Henry’s loyal uncle. It did NOT belong to Tudor who hid behind his bodyguards, barely dirting his armor, and spend most part of the battle whining why didn’t Stanley declared for him already.
The difference between a rightful king and an usurper has never been more glaring like in this moment. Despite the fact, he was only 5 years younger than Richard he behaved like a boy and a coward, when he was told by his uncle to flee he fled without a second thought, however, when Richard faced defeat and was offered the same opportunity he stood his ground fighting and dying alongside his men like the true king he was.
