Suppose Richard III of England defeats Henry Tudor at the battle of Bosworth and reigns for many years… How does he change the world?

Suppose Richard III won at Bosworth…

Suppose six hundred years later his legacy still shapes English society…

On 22nd August 1485, Richard III defeats Henry Tudor at the battle of Bosworth, bringing an end to the Wars of the Roses and security to England.  He sets about building a new kind of regime with the welfare of the common people at its heart. But he is beset by an illicit passion, haunted by the ghosts of his past, and faced with betrayal and rebellion that will shake the foundations of his rule.

In the year 2125, a young man watches preparations for a day of national celebration. It is the coronation of a new King Richard, who is soon to discover that he is surrounded by people who want to reform the outmoded, repressive constitution he is about to inherit. And they are the people he least expects.
