Today's story is set in Leicester and the fans of Leicester City football club are known as "The Foxes". The king mentioned in "The Fox and the Ghost King" is King Richard III who was King of England from 1483 until his death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. When he died, his body went missing but, in 2012, his bones were discovered buried under a carpark in Leicester! It was this discovery that gave Michael Morpurgo the idea for his book.
