Filming Locations: Where was The King filmed?

Posted by

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 (Paul Atreides in Dune) leads the cast along with Robert Pattinson (famous for his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films) as The Dauphin.

Completing the main cast are 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 can check out, this historic building was heavily modified via digital effects.

Shooting at Haddon Hall
Haddon Hall also provided some interior rooms and the chapel.

This mansion situated in the heart of the Peak District was also used as a filming location for Mary Queen of Scots and in BBC's mini-series starring Kit Harington Gunpowder.

Filming in Lincoln Cathedral
The coronation sequence and some other interior scenes were filmed at the Lincoln Cathedral, a Gothic masterpiece commenced in 1072.

The boat scene when the king crosses the English Channel to invade France was filmed using the Matthew of Bristol, a replica of a caravel dating from 1497.

The King drehort
An important section of the film was shot in Hungary, primarily the battlefield scenes that required lots of extras.

The production required the services of a prestigious equestrian farm in Szilvásvárad. The medieval villages seem to be a set built at the backlot of Korda Studios in Budapest.

Pictured, the Komarom fortress, a 19th-century fortress located at the Hungarian-Slovakian border, a location also featured in The Witcher series.

The castle of the siege may have been done entirely with CGI.
