      King Henry VI resumed his reign only briefly, however. A Year Book reports one of his most famous acts, when he called together all his justices and posed three questions concerning specific cases. Also his sister Margaret later chose to be buried in a Franciscan Priory choir in Mechelen modern Belgium. What Richard's tomb might have looked like The tomb was probably set in place in the summer of Fighting bravely, Richard himself was killed.

Although Richard suppressed it, most of the leaders escaped to Brittany, where on Christmas Day they recognized the exiled Henry Tudor as king. The recovered skeleton showed two remarkable similarities to Richard III. His loyalty to his brother Edward during this time brought Richard great rewards, including lands that once belonged to those who rose up against the king.

      In early genetic testing confirmed that the skeleton was that of Richard. He must have removed any remaining traces of the alabaster tomb and erected his inscribed pillar in its place. In fact, he nearly depleted the treasury left by his father in order to fund his Crusade. The text is preceded by a general introduction, a chronology, and suggestions for further reading. First, you need to know … … where he was buried! There is a marvellous episode when Richard comes into a room which is full of conspirators and he comments admiringly on some strawberries grown by Lord Hastings and asks him for a mess of them, Richard leaves the room apparently satisfied but returns within the hour grim of face and with armed guards, they seize Hastings who is summarily executed.
