Eleanor the secret queen
John Ashdown-Hill [http://www.johnashdownhill.com/] is the historian who discovered Richard III's mtDNA sequence in 2004. Together with his work for the BBC on the myth that Richard's body was thrown into a river, and his research on Richard's grave site, this provided the key data used by the LOOKING FOR RICHARD PROJECT [http://looking-for-richard.webs.com/] to find Richard III's remains in 2012.
John's latest book is THE THIRD PLANTAGENET, GEORGE, DUKE OF CLARENCE, RICHARD III's BROTHER - 'Time has not been kind to George, Duke of Clarence, Thanks to Shakespeare's RICHARD III, the brother of Richard and Edward IV is remembered as 'False, fleeting, perjur'd''; a traitor put to a fool's death. ... But the real George, as this enthralling and elegant biography makes plain, was very different. ... In Ashdown-Hill, George has finally found the champion he deserves'. THE MAIL ON SUNDAY
