    ^ I just googled the words "catholic persecution england 16th century" and "the sacking of the monasteries"

    and it came up with

    "Eighty-five martyrs died for the Catholic faith in England and Wales more than three centuries ago"

    Henry VIII destroyed most of the monasteries forming the Church of England. He wanted the riches.

    85 - when? Catholic Mary burned far more Puritans.

    Pat - this thread is about King Richard III. If you want to discuss religious oppression, please open your own thread; do not try to hijack this one. And, it is certainly not about Ireland. Thank you.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    This thread isn't about Roman Catholicism per se. The Church of England didn't exist in 1485 and Richard was a Catholic like almost everyone else in England at the time. If the bones do turn out to be his, I imagine the good old C of E will take the lead as it's now the established (or state) church and a Cardinal will be invited along to keep the Catholics happy.

    I've just spotted a new piece on the BBC site reporting a parliamentary debate about the site of any reburial:

    I've not seen anything new about these two. It's not so far been possible to show that the bones discovered in the Tower some time ago are definitely theirs. I don't think there'd be any form of reburial without that.

    The bones thought to be those of Edward V and his brother Richard, Duke of York, are, of course, in Westminster Abby in an urn designed by Christopher Wren. What better place? But the availability of DNA from a descendant of their sibling, being compared with those of the putative Richard III remains, will probably result in the Dean of Westminster consenting to the long sought reexamination of the boys bones. If their bones yield usable DNA, it would answer that question at last. It would probably not answer the questions of how they died, or who was responsible.
    Richard's queen, Anne Neville was buried in Westminster, the exact position being unknown. It is not unlikely that he would have chosen the Abby as well for that reason, but there is again the problem of space.

    This might interest some of you whilst we await the DNA results. The death has occurred of Lady Kinloss who, but for a quirk of history, would apparently have been the Tudor Queen of England:

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    Well, no. The Stuarts and Queen Elizabeth are descended from Henry VIII's eldest Sister Margaret through her two grand children, Mary Queen of Scots, and Lord Darnley. Lady Kinloss is descended from the younger sister, Mary Brandon. By primogeniture, Margaret and her descendants have the superior claim. The wii of Henry was not controling.

    The history of any monarchy is but a competition between pretexts and pretenders. If we had had King Mike in charge of the Commonwealth, they would have been filming a documentary about Lady Liz Battenberg in the middle of the outback and telling her she was meant to be queen.

    I'd call myself a monarchist, but let's not kid ourselves; the royal lineage makes about as much of a straight line as a partyboi at an all-weekend rave.

    If in fact it is Richard III he will be reinterred in Leicester Cathedral, Church of England. It undecided what service he will receive and if any of the royal family will attend.

    Of interest to those following this thread:

    A gold coin of Richard III's reign has been found near Bosworth Field:

    http://www.coinweek.com/world-coins/...bosworth-field

    In the summer of 1485, an unknown person lost a freshly minted angel near were the Battle of Bosworth in the county of Leicestershire. Was he one of Richard III’s or Henry Tudor’s soldiers making his way to do battle in the seemingly endless conflict of the ‘War of the Roses’, or was the coin lost whilst the previous owner was leaving to return home? We can never know if the coin witnessed the battle, but its loss so soon after being struck is a bonus for the modern collector as a piece of such quality is a rarity. Richard III’s wonderful ‘boar’s head’ mint mark is as clear as a summer day.

    A gold ANGEL coin with a Value of 6 Shilling & 6d. Whomever such a coin was a person of wealth. Weight 5.16g
    This buttresses the claim that the battle took place at Bosworth Field rather than another location.

    New documentary and physical evidence shows that the battle may have not taken place at Ambion Hill:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/e...re/8523386.stm

    Bosworth, fought in 1485, which saw the death of Richard III, was believed to have taken place on Ambion Hill, near Sutton Cheney in Leicestershire.

    But a study of original documents and archaeological survey of the area has now pinpointed a site in fields more than a mile to the south west.

    ....
    Of the most recent, and important finds made, was a gilded silver badge in the shape of a boar - Richard's personal emblem.

    Experts believe this would have been given to one of the doomed king's closest companions and lost in the final stages of the battle.
    My previous post should have said "in the area of Bosworth Field." (Too late to edit.)

    Since they know how many people watch royal weddings and funerals on TV, I would guess that they will make it a show. Not an official state funeral, but a big ceremony. The church will of course, be filled to capacity. I would guess that Prince Charles will attend. I think he has a degree in archeology and history. Who is the present Duke of Gloucester? I would also guess that it will be a Catholic ceremony but with participation by Anglican ministers as well.

The next in the line of succession is the Earl of Ulster's infant son Xan Windsor, known by his grandfather's third title of Lord Culloden. The currently Royal dukedom will devolve into an ordinary one when it will be inherited by the Earl of Ulster; as a great-grandson of a sovereign he lacks any royal style.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    It will be remembered that Richard III was Duke of Gloucester before taking the Crown:

    The title was next conferred on Richard Plantagenet, brother to King Edward IV. When Richard himself became King, the dukedom merged into the crown. After Richard's death, the title was considered ominous, since the first three such Dukes had all died without issue to inherit their titles. The title was not awarded for over 150 years, the next to receive the dukedom being the son of King Charles I, Henry Stuart, upon whose death the title became officially extinct.

    What was believed to be the remains of Richard III will be identified as such.

    Human remains found in the resting place of Richard III have already been identified as those of the king but information is being held back ahead of a major press conference next month, sources close to the project claim.
    ....
    Additional evidence not revealed at a major press conference after the remains were found demonstrates beyond all reasonable doubt that the body is the King's, even without genetic proof, the source said.

    During the period of anti-German feelings in England during World War I, many German names and titles were changed and given more English-sounding names, including the royal family's from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor. Kaiser Wilhelm II countered this by jokingly saying that he was off to see a performance of 'The Merry Wives of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.' (Referring to Shakespeare's play The Merry Wives of Windsor.)

    Not all kings were buried near London. Richard has been in Leicester since 1484, so it is more consistent with history to leave him there. There is no room in Westminster Abbey or St George's, Windsor without disruption.

    Add to that the unresolved controvery over the deaths of the Princes in the Tower, Edward V, the uncrowned King, and Richard of Shrewsbury. Duke of York, for which Richard III is generally thought culpable.

    Leicester Cathedral now has a page for Richard III, containing a link to the excavation progress.

    The Richard III Society has commissioned a facial reconstruction for the skeleton -- believed to be that of Richard III -- unearthed in the Leicester carpark:

    Although the identity of the skeleton is not confirmed, the Richard III Society has commissioned a facial reconstruction, based on a CT scan taken by the University of Leicester, to be carried out by a leading expert in facial anthropology.
    ....
    The resulting reconstruction is expected to feature in a Channel 4 programme early in 2013, which will document the life of King Richard and the search for his grave.
    Press release, Richard III Society, December 27, 2012 (PDF converted to Word)

    As I assume the Society is privy to private information I expect this will indeed be the remains of Richard III.

    No portraits survive from the period.

    The Anglo-Saxon kings were buried various places, but most often Winchester Cathedral, as was William II. Henry I died in France and his organs were buried ar Sainte-Marie des Pres. The body was buried in England at Reading Abbey. Stephan at Feversham Abbey church.

    Thanks for keeping the thread up to date guys. I'm looking forward to the DNA announcement, but disappointed that the King will be re-interred in as nondescript a place as Leicester.

    @ unloadonme:

    Glad to have our reporter "on the ground" back. I imagine the DNA date is fast approaching. Hope the Channel 4 documentary is shown in the States; may have to buy a copy.
