King Richard Week – Finale


You think this was the ending? – No way!


The diverse articles of the King Richard Week 2011 were a wonderful treat and fiery appell,

to do the film “Richard III” by Richard Armitage.

Interviews, research, fun, polls and irony, … and we still did not run out of topics!


Our week continued, though not all our planned contributions could be published in time. Some of our contributors had personal problems and had to drop out on short notice. We hope to be able to publish their contributions lateron.

Please say a prayer or keep those in mind, who need our support and attention. We send the best wishes to all who could not participate and to all who need help and hope. We wish them that things and problems can be sorted out fast and swiftly.


To help some of those in need, our donor made his promised donation yesterday, when the final amount of additional signatures from the Richard III Foundation came in.

We greatly thank the Richard III Foundation, for supporting our cause and promoting our “Richard III” petition. They reached an extraordinary amount of


60 signatures


at the re-enactors event at Bosworth last weekend. An exceptional result, regarding they were organizing the event and had to do work other than promoting our petition there.


We say a big and heartfelt THANK YOU !

(We will add the number of signatures to our total number today.)



The donation amount from our secret donor therfore reaches the amount of € 20,40. He made the donation in equal parts to the Salvation Army and the Shelter, as announced on the CDoart-blog. As he thinks exchange rates are fussy, the donation is made in GBP:

The King Richard Week was a full success and lots of lovely feedback and words of support came in.

We hope you enjoyed the week and will continue following and support the efforts to make the realisation of the film “Richard III” a little bit easier by showing, that there are fans waiting for this project initiated by Mr. Armitage.


All the best to you, wherever you are, whatever you do and whatever problems you have to overcome. The KingRichardArmitage contributors are a supportive and friendly group and we hope we were able to divert you from daily problems at least for a short while.


Best wishes and good luck,

Your KRA-Team
