Do You Think Richard III Killed His Nephews?
I watched a riveting programme last night where the woman responsible for finding Richard III's remains in a Leicester car park was recently researching into whether he killed his nephews Edward and Richard, sons of his brother Edward IV.
She enlisted the help of Judge Rob Rinder and they travelled Europe speaking with medieval experts and were shown documents that had not seen the light of day for around 500 years.
I have long believed through my own studies that Richard did not kill his nephews and at the end of this programme the documents that would indicate he didn't were verified by eminent professors as being genuine. The
Tudor propaganda machine had to sully his name in order to vindicate their own claim to the throne. Even Shakespeare was guilty of currying favour with the Tudors by vilifying the House of York. He deliberately wrote plays to curry favour with Elizabeth I and what better way than to justify the Tudors right to the throne? There is another interesting documentary about the Bard himself currently showing on TV and I learned a lot I did not know about him, apart from the fact that he left his wife his 'second best bed'!
