Justice for Richard III

Richard_III.jpg

Having earned an ill deserved "C" for my essay on this topic for an undergraduate course in Middle Ages English History, I can speak to the long standing, pernicious effects of Tudor propaganda.

It is time for Richard III to come home to York (via Quotulatiousness).

“Richard obviously had no choice after he was killed as to where his remains were taken, but today we have the opportunity to right the many wrongs that have been done to this unjustly maligned king, by correcting the distorted picture that has been painted of Richard over the centuries, and by bringing his remains home to Yorkshire, and to York Minster as he wanted.”

Petition at the link.
