Why did Richard III lose the Battle of Bosworth?Watch
I know that Richard went down with a few men to attack Henry VII and when this went wrong the Stanley's charged for Henry, attacked Richard and killed him because they outnumbered him, but I don't think this is detailed enough for my teacher

Richard split his army into several smaller groups but they struggled to cause great effect against Henry's army, with many soldiers fleeing the battle.
In a desperate attempt to end the battle quicker, Richard led his own group charging into the fray in an attempt to end the battle quickly by piercing Henry's army and killing him. At this point Stanley led his men into battle to fight against Richard's men, believing that Henry was more likely to succeed in this battle. Outnumbered and outmatched, Richard's army was slain and so was Richard.
