The Netflix movie The King, depicting the young days of the legendary monarch Henry V, is based on Shakespeare's Henry IV and Henry V plays. Timothee Chalamet leads the cast along with Robert Pattinson (famous for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films) as The Dauphin, Tom Glynn-Carney as Henry Hotspur Percy, Joel Edgerton as Falstaff, Sean Harris as William Gascoigne and Lily-Rose Depp as Catherine.

The King was filmed in England and in Hungary. To be a movie set in the Middle Ages there was a lot of CGI involved, often hiding the real filming locations of the film:

Where was The King filmed
The 13th century Palace of Westminster was inspired by Haddon Hall, a country house near Bakewell, (Derbyshire). As you compare in this screenshoot, the building was heavily CGIed.

Shooting at Haddon Hall
Haddon Hall also provided some interiors, like the chapel. This mansion situated in the heart of the Peak District, was also used as a filming location for Mary Queen of Scots movie and in BBC's mini-series starring Kit Harington Gunpowder. Image courtesy of Netflix and Tom Blackie


Berkeley Castle movie shoot
The King was also filming in the Berkeley Castle (Gloucestershire). This historical English Heritage state is also a popular shooting location (The White Princess, The Other Boleyn Girl, The Ghost Hunter).

Filming in Lincoln Cathedral
The coronation scene and some other interiors are from Lincoln Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece commenced in 1072. The boat scene when the king crosses the English Channel to invade France was filmed in the Matthew of Bristol, a replica of a caravel from 1497. Image courtesy of Phil McIver and Google Maps


The King drehort
An important section of the film was shot in Hungary, especially the battlefield scenes that required lots of extras. The production was using the services of a prestigious equestrian farm in Szilvásvárad. The medieval villages seem to be the backlot set of Korda Studios in Budapest. Pictured, the Komarom fortress. The castle of the siege may have been done entirely with CGI. Image courtesy of Globetrotter - Map
