King Richard III (1452-1485) and Queen Anne Neville

Richard III (2 October 1452 – 22 August 1485) was King of England and Lord of Ireland from 26 June 1483 until his death in 1485. He was the last king of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet dynasty. His defeat and death at the Battle of Bosworth Field, the last decisive battle of the Wars of the Roses, marked the end of the Middle Ages in England.

Anne Neville (11 June 1456 – 16 March 1485) was Queen of England as the wife of King Richard III. She was the younger of the two daughters and co-heiresses of Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick (the "Kingmaker"). Before her marriage to Richard, she had been Princess of Wales as the wife of Edward of Westminster, Prince of Wales, the only son and heir apparent of King Henry VI.

Richard's resurrection from the parking lot has always seemed to me like what people must have felt about Tutankhamun. There's just something so astonishing and eerie about the way he was found.

The way researchers found a body double for Richard to see how he would have managed with the scoliosis is a fascinating watch, in addition to teaching me the word "gracile":
 
At Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick's castle in Middleham, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, underwent his aristocratic apprenticeship in the arts of war and diplomacy.
Did Richard, Duke of Gloucester, need the Pope's permission to marry Anne Neville?
