King Richard III & Historians

 

 

The question about King Richard III and his fate in history for historians is not an easy one,

or better put:

it is a ‘history’ in itself and nothing to be mourned or which can possibly be changed.

 

How William Shakespeare saw King Richard III is a point of analysis, an entry point into a time long gone from a perspective and interpretative questions well embedded in the reasoning of our current time.

 

 

A very detailed and enlightening statement about King Richard III and the historical point of view today comes from a well known fan and  – what much better describes her unique approach than ‘fan’ – analyst of Mr. Armitage’s effect on womankind,

 

 

Servetus – on her blog Me+RichardArmitage.

“richard + richard armitage”: Or, why I am not that kind of Ricardian

 

 

I hope you enjoy the arguments and comparison between historians, Ricardians and Mr. Armitage’s point of interest as much as I did.

I am very much looking forward to Servetus’ promised continuation of her deep research and analysis into the topic of King Richard III.
