Character description

Richard III (1452–1485), King of England from 1483 until his death, was the last Plantagenet king and the last from the house of York. He fought bravely in the Wars of the Roses while still a teenager and was made Duke of Gloucester and Governor of the North by his older brother King Edward IV. Modern historians have judged him to have been an able and effective ruler. There is still controversy over the legitimacy of his reign and the nagging possibility to some that he ordered the murder of his nephews. In 2012, nearly 530 years after he was killed in the Battle of Bosworth, his lost grave was discovered; after DNA analysis confirmed that the remains were his, he was reinterred with all due honors at Leicester Cathedral.
