Richard the Third


The University of Leicester has announced that the skeleton found in Leicester on the site of Grey Friars church is that of Richard the Third  "beyond reasonable doubt."

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for Richard the Third; he was undoubtedly much maligned by the Tudors. Whether he had his two nephews killed I don't know. I find it strange that he is so perpetually vilified but King John, who definitely had his nephew killed and may well have killed him by his own hands, doesn't get much attention.
