The Third Plantagenet : George, Duke of Clarence.
on 21 May 2014
I have always wanted to read a book about George. This book tells us about his childhood and why, perhaps he behaved as he did in adulthood. Throughout the many books about this period, George is always seen as the tall, golden haired, handsome, favourite son of his mother. This book says he was below average height, probably smaller that Richard and dark haired - confusing. As with most books that are not fictional, everything is maybe George did this or that, because... Or maybe George was here or there. Truthfully we just don't know. It is a shame though that other coffins were put into the Clarence Vault and that George's and Isabel's bones are in a glass case now - well maybe. George's bone will, I am sure will undergo mitrachondrial DNA testing at some point.
