King Richard Armitage and Fan News

 
 
A big THANK YOU to Philippa Langley for keeping her believes and continuing so straightforward on her way to find and honour King Richard III.
I hope this find will motivate researchers of all scientific subjects and also especially historians, to now have a closer and more extended look at the material, in cooperation of disciplines, with now available new technologies, in a digital and globally connected world where worldwide archives become more and more easily available.
 


♛ King Richard & His Fans ♛


 
Before I start with selected fan- and King Richard-news, I must ask for a bit of patience.
KRA was so overwhelmed with comments, requests and messages that currently we are still sorting through all the mails. We try to get up to date as fast as possible, but it might still take a few days, till all requests and mails can be answered. So please stay with us, we will answer every mail and contact form request sent in.
We very much cherish your feedback and offers of help and thank you very much for getting in contact with us !
 
 
Now to King Richard and his Fans:
 

 
 

 
 
BBC Radio Leicester announced that Philippa Langley will join them for a live interview this week, Thursday, 07.02.2013, after 3 p.m.
 
 
On Monday, 04.02.2013, there had been an open Q&A session with Prof. Lin Foxhall and Philippa Langley about the researches in Leicester. The Q&As still are open to see here:
Channel4 – Q&A with Prof. Lin Foxhall and Philippa Langley
 
I unfortunately did not get my questions answered and so, for completion’s sake, post them here:
 
 

  • Is this find with all its media attention able to change the public opinion about King Richard III and if not, what would eventually be able to create a new public opinion about King Richard III?
  •  

  • Why did the friars not move King Richard III’s body, when they built the sarcophagus paid by Henry VII’s?
  •  

  • What will this find now mean for the Richard III Society? (Especially because Ms Philippa Langley mentioned that they were in discussions with the Leicester City Council to give the society archive into the care of the intended Richard III Museum in Leicester.)
  •  
     
    I had hoped for much more details about the King in the documentary by Channel4, but the documentary showed, that the film team had not really believed to find King Richard III and so had swapped the deeper research into the topic.
     
    A big THANK YOU to Philippa Langley for not letting anything deter her from her way to find King Richard III.

    ♛ Battle of the Cities ♛


     

     
    As those two articles show, the Battle of the Cities did not come to an end with the official declaration of Leicester Cathedral as last burial place for King Richard III, confirmed by the Ministry of Justice.
    Our poll about the cities gets attention once again.
     
    We want to mention, as also comments flood in about this topic here on divers places, that the KingRichardArmitage website is neutral in this question.
    Many supporters of King Richard III take the position that his written instruction to hold sermons for him and his family in York Minster reveal his wish to be buried there. This is one of the possible interpretation of his actions, while the burial places of his wife and son might contradict this interpretation to some extent.
     
    We will report about news regarding this topic, but won’t take sides.
    We welcome ‘non-discriminating’ discussions and comments on our poll page, especially created for this topic, but also need to state that personal attacks will be deleted or withheld from being published, here and on our related Facebook site Richard III for Richard Armitage!
     
     

    Thank you for all your support and help !

     
     
    If you miss interesting articles here, please let us know. We continue to build the Press Coverage pages
    and will specially create an area about the researches and research results around King Richard III.
