Leicester Fought and Won…?


♛ Leicester News ♛

News is breaking that Leicester has won the ‘New Battle in the Wars of the Roses’ and was able to decide the (premature) skirmish for their Cathedral.
The Ministry of Justice seems to have made the final decision now, in case the human remains turn out to be King Richard III, to bury him in the Cathedral of Leicester, in which proximity, he already rested for over 500 years.

  • Dianne Penn says:

    I am truly in awe of the efforts of all concerned in (hopefully) finding King Richard but I am absolutely shocked and devastated that his wishes have been ignored. It was well known that he wanted to be buried in York Minster, the building of a Chantry Chapel was commenced in his lifetime. He has now been bought and sold by Leicester ~ something that Richard himself refused to do after Edward lV signed The Treaty of Picquingy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Picquigny
    How can a person’s wishes be ignored so blatantly? Leicester has done nothing for Richard except use him as a tourist attraction, even having printed Tee shirts prior to the DNA results being in. The various plaques and the memorial stone in the cathedral were not instigated by the council even but by the RlllS and a private individual.
    Yes that note pinned to his tent at Bosworth would ominously ring true well over 500 years later “……. Dickon, thy master is bought and sold….” a shocking end to what should have been a wondrous time that we in the 21st century, could be talking about carrying out our last Yorkist King’s wishes and at last giving him the respect and deference he so truly deserves. Instead he will reman in Leicester, where he was left in the Market Place for 2/3 days for all to gawp at. Nothing has changed.

    Absolutely agree with the sentiments of Dianne Penn. Surely anyones wishes should be adhered to let alone an annointed king of england. Not only that he lived in York for a considerable amount of his life , was known as the LORD OF THE NORTH. He has no connection with Leicester except that he died nearby.
    He should be buried in York Minster (I am a southerner)

  • Edale Levene says:

    I agree totally with Margaret and Diane. If this truly is Richard the only place he should be laid to rest is York as he himself wished. I don’t think that Leicester had any special meaning for Richard unlike the city of York and the North.
