The King released on Netflix featuring Lincoln’s historic sights

Lincoln’s historic sights will appear in Netflix’s ‘The King’ film, which was released on Friday.

The historic quarter of Lincoln was transformed into a film set in June last year ready for scenes including Henry V’s coronation.

Henry V (Timothee Chalamet) was crowned in 1413 at Westminster Abbey, but Lincoln Cathedral was used as a double for the Abbey. Chalamet plays Prince Hal, a wild young price who would later become the legendary monarch King Henry V.

The Dauphin of France (Robert Pattinson).

Robert Pattinson, famous for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films, plays Dauphin of France.

The synopsis for the drama, lasting 2 hours and 20 minutes, reads: “Wayward Prince Hal must turn from carouser to warrior king as he faces hostilities from inside and outside the castle walls in the battle for England.”

The King seems to follow the young prince from his early days through to his coronation and then later when he invaded France after negotiations failed.

It also gives people a chance to have a look as Joel Edgerton as Hal’s friend Sir John Falstaff, a fictional character from William Shakespeare’s plays of the same era.

Henry V’s love interest Catherine of Valois is played by Lily Rose-Depp, while Ben Mendelsohn and Sean Harris play King Henry IV and soldier Michael Williams respectively.

Besides Lincoln, The King, which was released in some UK cinemas on October 11, also filmed a lot of scenes in Hungary.

Here are some of our behind the scenes videos from June 2018, when filming crews were in Lincoln.
