Some background:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Bosworth_Field



Treason and French Mercenaries helped the under dog Tudors seize the crown.

Obviously this man was royalty. He had his own parking space for over five hundred years.

Re: Richard III dig: DNA confirms bones are king

Well if I got a sword stuck up my backside I'd probably be walking with a hump as well.

There was also evidence of "humiliation" injuries, including a pelvic wound likely to have been caused by an upward thrust of a weapon, through the buttock.

Re: Richard III dig: DNA confirms bones are king

I wonder if he will get a state funeral?
He is a King after all so I guess he might get put into Westminster.

Reconstructed face

Looks like his portraits.

Re: Richard III dig: DNA confirms bones are king

Shame Channel 4 ruined a compelling, interesting story with ridiculous staged sequences and ridiculously over-dramatic shots of that silly bint crying. I loved the look on her face when the forensic scientist said that someone had probably shoved a sword up Richard's jacksy post-mortem. That was just after she had run out sobbing when they confirmed that he had indeed suffered from a severe scoliosis.

I dunno about the state funeral, but here's a quote from Gawker about the rest:

"Richard III will likely be reinterred at an Anglican cathedral in Leicester early next year.

Hopefully in the parking lot, because parking lots are his fave."

Re: Richard III dig: DNA confirms bones are king

The bit I don't get is how he ended up in a car park. I mean, were cars even invented back then? Maybe he was dogging?
