Full Press Conference Video about Search for King Richard III (12.09.2012)

 
For all who had not been able to attend or watch the press conference live on BBC last Wednesday, 12th of September 2012, the University of Leicester published a full recording of the sensational news about finding humans remains with clear signs of possibly being King Richard III:
 
 

 
 
Now that King Richard III might be found – the mtDNA still needs to confirm the success of the search – a controversial topic dominates the discussions about King Richard III.
 
Leicester, York or Westminster
 
Those are the places brought into the discussion where the best last resting place for King Richard III might be.
 
 
Westminster
 
+ King Richard III’s wife is buried there, though her exact resting place is unknown (Plate was put into the chapel in modern times for commemoration and is not her exact burial location.)
 
church is strongly dominated by the Tudor dynasty on the English throne and heirs to King Henry VII Tudor, the victors over King Richard III at Bosworth.
 
 
York
 
+ King Richard III planned a chapel there, which is thought to have been intended for his own and his families burials.
 
historic structure of the Cathedral, as the planned chapel was not built, might necessitate, that King Richard III needs to be squeezed in.
 
 
Leicester
 
+ King Richard III rested in this parish for over 500 years already.
 
as all the other churches, it is not the religion King Richard III belonged to, as it is a reformed church changed by Tudor King Henry VIII in the 16th century.
 
 
These are only a few of the arguments in this controversial discussion about a controversial king.
 
I wish for the best resting place for King Richard III, wherever that may be.
