1737: Letter from one William Cowper, "In 1708 ...., there was discovered a large vault... the entire skeleton of a man...., with a book, paper, pen etc..., in another part of the room lay a cap; all much mouldered and decayed.... Which the family and others judged to be this Lord Lovel, whose exit has hitherto been so uncertain." Were these the remains of Francis Viscount Lovel, friend and loyal retainer to King Richard IIIrd? One who was thought to have been killed at the Battle of East Stoke in 1487, an engagement,which finally brought to an end the Wars of the Roses? Did the manuscript, which was found within the vault. Francis's journal, tell the real truth about the Wars of the Roses, the secrets of King Edward IV and after him King Richard IIIrd's life and reign? Is Tudor history a deception? Was King Richard truly the deformed and despicable monster that they would all have us believe, both he and his comrades responsible for a great number of heinous crimes? Maybe, just maybe the answer lay within the pages of these rediscovered memoirs.
