Interesting For Those who wish a Synopsis
on 3 November 2013
This is as is stated by the author and as concise as she could make it. I would recommend this as a starter for those who are interested in Richard III and why he has been so maligned. It is wrong to say that Richard must have been a usurper he most certainly wasn't. He has been maligned and without going into the great debate here others had more to gain-simple logic shows that -if you have an open mind. People still after all these centuries see the Shakespeare and Tudor Characterisation . The Tudor dynasty has the bloodiest record of all England's Dynasties and Shakespeare was certainly no Historian in fact one of the worst for inaccuracies -he was a playwright and wrote during the Tudor dynasty therefore he was most likely fond of keeping his head firmly on his shoulders. As I have said this is a very good introduction to the debate on this King, it is a global debate and no other King has created such interest and argument. Worth the purchase!
