    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    Recent Royal burial have been with the ledger stone in the floor. In particular, King George VI, the Queen Mother Elizabeth, and Princess Margaret. Edward VIII and Wallis are in the Royal Burial Ground at Frogmore with flat stones covering the graves, as are other members of the Royal Family. Many Kings and Queens have ledger stones, including Henry 8 and Charles 1.Others have only floor tiles, including James 1, George 2d.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    Since the Richard III society has done so much to try to improve the bad image of the King, perhaps they should have the final say in the matter. Most people still view King Richard III as a hunchbacked monster who ordered his nephews murdered in the tower. Perhaps he was not a monster.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    Richard III may or may not have murdered his nephews, but, even if he did, it wouldn't have been that unusual for the time in which he lived. Edward II was murdered in Berkeley Castle, probably on the orders of his wife. Richard II was almost certainly murdered in Pontefract Castle by his cousin Henry IV. Edward IV had Henry VI murdered in the Tower.

    During the Tudor period, various Plantagenet heirs were executed to prevent challenges for the throne; Margaret Pole, Countess of Salisbury was one of them. Also, of course, Henry VIII had two of his wives executed and Elizabeth I executed her cousin Mary Queen of Scots.

    It just goes to show that Richard III shouldn't necessarily be judged by twenty-first century values.

    Of course it should be a Catholic ceremony with participation by Anglican clergy. Or perhaps vice versa.

    It is more a matter of historical interest than of religion. Nor is it a question of which religion is true, if any, but of which religion was his.

    Oh, put him back in the same parking lot if they're going to fight over the bones….

    I'd think it's impossible that he wouldn't have had a funeral, so all the commending-of-his-soul and imploring and beseeching should have been taken care of already. Does a simple reinterment require all the same falderal?

    Here: why not ask the next of kin? (presumably the guy they took the cheek swab from to show he was in the same genetic line)

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    More likely the ultimate decision will be made by his legal heiress, Queen Elizabeth II. Of course, this is unecessary, but there will be a huge demand for tickets to the historic event, and it will probably be on TV.

    It appears car park knights are popping up like crocus.

    The grave of a medieval knight and the foundations of a monastery built by a former king of Scotland have been found under an old city car park.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    For an in-depth examination of the "Princes in the Tower" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_in_the_Tower) you will benefit from Josephine Tey's 1951 novel The Daughter of Time, available from Amazon (Oxford City Press 2011 reprint):

    The Daughter of Time is a 1951 detective novel by Josephine Tey, concerning a modern police officer's investigation into the alleged crimes of King Richard III of England. It was the last book Tey published in her lifetime, shortly before her death.
    ....

    On its publication Anthony Boucher called the book "one of the permanent classics in the detective field.... one of the best, not of the year, but of all time". Dorothy B. Hughes also praised it, saying it is "not only one of the most important mysteries of the year, but of all years of mystery".
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Daughter_of_Time

    Also examined is the Titulus Regius, by which Richard III assumed the Crown, and which Henry VII took great pains to extinguish. (Only one copy survives,) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titulus_Regius

    Indeed. Amongst the descendants of George III and Queen Charlotte are Elizabeth II and Prime Minister David Cameron. I was going to add Mayor of London Boris Johnson, but he's only a descendant of George II.

    This is a good picture of Richard III's reconstructed face being inspected by his 17th great-nephew, Michael Ibsen.

    Re: His Late Majesty King Richard III

    Richard III, who had gone three days without burial after is death, was buried in a hastily dug grave, without coffin, and probably without shroud.

    The new research is the first academic paper published on the discovery of Richard III, which was publically announced in February 2013.
    ....
    Most of the graves in the Grey Friars church floor are neat and orderly, with squared-off rectangle sides. Richard III's is an exception. The grave is irregularly shaped, with sloping sides. It was also too small for the 5-foot-8-inch (1.7 m) skeleton interred within: Richard's torso is twisted and his head propped up rather than laid flat. The body was also crammed against the north wall of the grave, perhaps because someone stood against the south wall to guide the body into its resting place. Whoever it was did not spend time afterward rearranging the body into a more symmetrical position.

    There was an interesting documentary on Channel 4 about the discovery and the DNA testing of the bones. I'm not entirely sure that the subject would lend itself to a movie, but I guess you never know!

    That's right. I believe legal action has been threatened, so don't expect an early resolution.

    ^ Half of my family is by way of Yorkshire. I loved it a few years ago and we had the privilege of one of the most beautiful evensongs I've ever been to in York Minster.
