News Breaks – Relatives Claim Accepted – King Richard III Worth a Precedent

 


♛ Battle of the Cities ♛


 
The appeal by the distant relatives of King Richard III, who formed the Plantagenet Alliance, has been granted. They now have permission to get a judical review of the decision for Leicester as the last resting place.
 

The University of Leicester issued the following official statement today:

The University maintains that it is entirely proper and fitting that the remains of Richard III, Duke of Gloucester, be buried in the magnificent holy setting of Leicester Cathedral, near where his remains had lain for centuries and where they were finally discovered as a result of what the court described as ‘the inspired, determined and meticulous work’ of the University and members of the Richard III Society. The University will now liaise with the Ministry of Justice with a view to ascertaining how it wishes to proceed.

And notes:

  • The Dig for Richard III was led by the University of Leicester, working with Leicester City Council and in association with the Richard III Society. The originator of the Search project was Philippa Langley of the Richard III Society.
  • Dr John Ashdown-Hill was instrumental tracking down the descendants of Richard’s sister Anne of York, Joy Ibsen and her son Michael Ibsen, whose DNA, along with that of a second individual traced by Leicester academic Professor Kevin Schürer, was critical to identifying the remains found at Greyfriars in Leicester.
