A papal dispensation would have been required but... they weren't that hard to get for royalty - just offer to build some monasteries or pay some money to the church and it was usually granted.

Yes, but Richard had no plans to marry his niece. On the contrary, he was negotiating a marriage with Princess Joana of Portugal, sister of the King of Portugal. A marriage of Elizabeth with the king's cousin, and eventual successor, was part of the package. IMO, it was quite convenient for the rumor mongers to change "Marriages for the King and the Lady Elizabeth" to "marriage of the King TO the Lady Elizabeth" in that summer before Bosworth when rumors were part and parcel of the Tudor campaign for the throne. I know I keep posting this, but this old story keeps turning up like a bad penny.

Richard already had a funeral in 1485. Does Ricardian Philippa Langley want him to receive a second one! I think she's besotted!

Richard III: A hero maligned by Shakespeare - Telegraph
Quote:
History has not dealt justly with the posthumous reputation of our last Plantagenet king. Many commonly held ideas about him emanate not from historical study, but from William Shakespeare.

His play, 'Tragedy of King Richard the Third’, first performed in 1633, is a splendid piece of drama, depicting the king as a monster, the devil incarnate, who enjoys a murderous climb to the throne – yet the known facts simply don’t support this version of events.
Richard III: A common criminal - Telegraph
Quote:
When the twisted bones of King Richard III are laid to rest in a magnificent modern tomb in Leicester Cathedral, it will be with all the pomp and ceremony that England’s Church and State are still capable of bestowing.

But does our most controversial King deserve the honour? The huge upswell of interest aroused by the finding of his skeleton under a council car park, and the controversy over where to re-bury him, have obscured the most salient fact about the wretched little man. He was, in modern terms, a psychopathic serial killer who eliminated his imagined enemies: friend and foe, adult and child, with the merciless ruthlessness of an Ian Brady or a Peter Sutcliffe.

The King's final journey - live - King Richard III in Leicester

Ceremony fit for a king: Remains of Richard III begin five day journey to final resting place 500 years after he fell in battle | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Richard III has started the journey to his final resting place, more than 500 years after his death in battle.

The remains of the last Plantagenet King have left the University of Leicester, whose archaeologists discovered the king buried under a council car park in 2012, after the first of a series of ceremonies.

He is now making his way through the Leicestershire countryside to Bosworth battlefield where he fell in battle against Henry Tudor in 1485.
