♛ King Richard III ♛


  • Crossville Chronicle: Small Town Girl: Britain’s missing royalty, by Caroline Selby (09.05.2013) – King Richard III potentially not the child murdering king on the throne of England? The tide seems to turne in the king’s favour. What King Richard III so hard fought for, to have the benefit of the doubt, finally seems to reach the media.

  • Leicester Cathedral hosts past and present English monarchs, by Elizabeth Batt (10.05.2013) – A report about Leicester Cathedral and its history with beautiful images. That even present royalty sees it as a worthy place to visit, might be an argument to make the place more suitable for a ‘past king’.

♛ King Richard Everywhere ♛

You want to play King Richard III? – If you are in the age between 14 and 19, you have a chance here:

  • Brattleboro Reformer: NEYT Casting for ‘Richard III’ (15.05.2013) – King Richard III here unfortunately not a role for Mr. Armitage, but hopefully his part will work out soon. The New England Youth Theatre is giving teens the chance to play “one of Shakespeare’s most murderous plots”.

  • Times Herald Record: Make your wishes known regarding funeral, burial, by Bonnie Kraham, Guest columnist (09.05.2013) – I wonder whom King Richard III should have given his exact instructions. His wife and son were dead already and none of his siblings or any of his intructions survived long enough to prevent him from being quareld about now.
    If you want to show where your favours lie, please consider taking part in our poll about adequate procedures for King Richard III’s burial.

  • The Guardian: Diary: It’s the Wars of the Roses again. And this time it’s on Facebook. It started under a Leicester car park, and almost inevitably involves a boycott of Walkers’ crisps, by Stephen Bates (15.05.2013) – Took me a while to figure out that the later bullet points have nothing to do with the headline of the article.

  • Helen Rae Rants (Blog): Literature Matters: The White Queen (16.05.2013) – Ms. Rae reviews the book basis of the soon on TV series “The White Queen” by Philippa Gregory. She shows some of the reasons, why this film and book are no topic on the KRA website, though King Richard III appears in them.
    You missed Star Wars terribly here on the KRA website? Now here comes a treat for you:

  • On Line Darth Vader – the good guy who lost, by Mark S. Lawson (17.05.2013) – What King Richard III and Darth Vader have in common. You wonder? – Hm…, so do I. But after reading the article, you will certainly try to defend Darth Vader, the misunderstood leader, who’s history was written by the winners.
