Richard III (of Shakespeare fame) Killed on Aug 22, 1485, in the battle of Bosworth Field, Leicestershire, by Henry VII. In 2012 he was found under a parking lot in what was once Greyfriars, Leicester Church. Richard III was my 5th cousin 14x removed.
Edward & Richard ~ the 'Princes in the Tower'. These two boys were, in fact Edward V (uncrowned king of England) and his younger brother Richard, the only two surviving sons of the late Edward IV. History (and the Tudors) tell us that the boys were murdered some time after 1483 while resident in the Tower of London, and give the likely culprit as their uncle, King Richard III. Historians continue to debate the issue; I point the finger at Henry VII! From Rob. Totally agree.
Richard III's Skeleton: Whole skeleton showing curvature of spine at 10th and 11th thoracic vertebrae... scoliosis. This would not have given him the hump and horrid deformities of Shakespeare but his shoulder on one side would have been higher.
