Richard lll – the murderer of small children, or unjustly maligned by his successors? But what if he had won at Bosworth?
Richard lll reigned for less than three years, 1483 to 1485. However, millions of words have been written about him and he has his own ‘fan club’ – the Richard lll Society. We all know all about him, don't we – hunchback, murderer, usurper?
Or do we?
Now, am I jumping on the Richard lll bandwagon, as his remains have recently been found and identified?
Yes, because I am uploading this collection at this time and without the recent news, I probably would not have done so.
And no, because all of these pieces were written at least ten years ago. I have had a genuine interest in the latter Plantagenets and the Tudors for many years. Two are fiction – 'The Beaufort Solution' and 'Proof by Guilt', while the others are brief and chatty opinion articles. There is also a list of suggested reading for anyone whose interest has been piqued by this book.
