Richard III Museum Museums
Perhaps no English King fires the imagination more than Richard III, King of England for just 26 months (1483-85).
Demonised by Shakespeare as a deformed, hunchbacked villain, King Richard is said to have committed numerous brutal murders. Chief among these is the callous murder of his two nephews, Edward Prince of Wales (the uncrowned Edward V) and Richard Duke of York, the so called Princes in the Tower.
It is for this crime above all others that history condemns Richard III. But did he do it? Or is he simply the innocent victim of Tudor propaganda?
