"What do I fear? Myself?"
After decades of civil war, the nation hangs in the balance. Enter Richard, Duke of Gloucester, to change the course of history.
Richard was not born to be a king, but he’s set his sights on the crown. So begins his campaign of deceit, manipulation and violence – and he’s killing it.
Yet, behind his ambition lies a murderous desire to be loved.
