Searching Richard III
I noticed on my Leicester wonders there was a lot of publicity about Richard III, who was crowned King in 1438 and was killed in the Battle of Bosworth on 22nd August 1485. He was the last monarch to die in a battle and the Tudor dynasty began with the succession of Henry VII.
King Richard III, the duke of York, spent a lot of time of York though he died nearby. His remains were discovered in a car park in Leicester which was once the site of the Greyfriars and evidence suggests that it's Richard III's skeleton. There were (and still is) debates among members of the Plantagenet Alliance in York and Leicester about his 'rightful' burial place.
