A little over a year ago, we posted a blog about Emily Davison, the suffragette who was killed by the King’s horse at the 1913 Derby. There has always been speculation as to whether Davison’s death was a terrible accident or a planned suicide. You can find our original post here. Recently, new evidence about the incident has come to light and there was an article in the Daily Mail which raises new questions and proposes further theories. We thought you might be interested in these developments and so offer a link to the article here. What is perhaps most surprising is that the entire incident was caught on film, which can be viewed at the end of the article.
