Richard almost catches Henry Tudor – September 1484

While Duke Francis of Brittany was ill, his treasurer Pierre Landais made a deal with king Richard to turn over Henry Tudor. Henry was tipped off and escaped to France before he could be captured. When the duke found out, he was irate with his treasurer and compensated Henry by paying for all of his exiles in Vannes to travel to Henry’s new location in France where he would make preparations to invade England.
