♕ Happy Birthday ♕

 

♕ King Richard Armitage ♕


 
 
Two years ago, our present was a ‘virtual’ cake accompanying our online-present, the first King Richard Week 2011. We already hesitated to send a cake for our second King Richard Week 2012.
Delicious as it may look, it does not really taste that way.
 
This year we want to show, what present we (the fans and petition signers) would much rather like to give and of what presents we dream about.

Hopefully, it is ‘just a matter of time’ as Fernanda Matias writes, till this dream can become reality.

♛ Quiz ♛


 
KRA Quiz 2013

 
Procedure:
Simultaneously to this post, the quiz is opened up and the quiz questions become available.
As those who participated in the congenial quiz by quizmaster Servetus last year already will know, we request of you to enter your name and e-mail address to participate.
This is to ascertain that we can select a winner for the quiz, but also to avoid spam and double entries.
 
As we want to make the quiz fun for all participants, we have some security measures in place, so that you can enjoy the participation. This also necessitates a few security questions, but we tried to keep them at a minimum.
Your mail and data will not be shared, but is only used to execute this quiz.
 

Please note:
Quiz entries till the 27th of August, 2013 till midnight (GMT) take part in the drawing
and among the most complete and correct answers the two winners will be selected by random number.

 
 
We have two print-book give-aways about a very central aspect and turning point of King Richard III’s life.
We hope the lucky winners will enjoy this insightful historical novel by Isolde Martyn.
 
More about this book and its author here:
 
 


♛ The Devil in Ermine – Isolde Martyn ♛


 
Author Isolde Martyn
with her extensive knowledge about King Richard III and his life, has supported us here on the KingRichardArmitage website already with a presentation (interview 26.08.2011) of the Australian research group
The Plantagenet Society of Australia.
and also gave us an interview (14.03.2013) about her book about Jane Shore, mistress to King Edward IV, “Mistress to the Crown”.

In this interview presentation in March, I had already announced Isolde Martyn’s new book “The Devil in Ermine” coming out soon and reviewed my pre-version a bit:

I am currently reading Ms Martyn’s book “The Devil in Ermine“, which will come out shortly (Yes, I have a pre-version ;o)
And I can tell you, I can’t recommend it highly enough. I am in total awe of this well researched and gripping depiction of the decisive year 1483 in King Richard III’s life seen and told from the perspective of his cousin, the Duke of Buckingham.
The revolt by Buckingham, the reasons, the background are so well told that I really feel for the characters described in the book and see all the motives so well coming together and building the story. The book really has gripped me.
(I will let you know as soon as the book becomes available. – I know I am cruel here, stoking your curiosity, while I am already reading it ;o)

I am really happy to be able to have this wonderful book as our prize of this year’s quiz.
I hope the quiz winners will enjoy it as much as I did.
 
Isolde Martyn’s insightful and well researched interpretation of the upheaval and intrigues of the year 1483, the year King Richard III came to power and is betrayed by the Duke of Buckingham, is gripping like a crime novel.
To my surprise, I must admit, as I am normally hesitant with historical fiction, but rather read historical research. But Isolde Martyn’s fictionalisation is so very fact based and for me was such a psychologically understandable version of the events, that all the intrigues and motivations of the historical figures acting so wildly during the year 1483 finally came together and made sense to me.
So to all who want to get a clearer understanding to why King Richard III changed so much at the beginning of his reign and could not become the benevolent and magnificent king he could have been and would have had the ability to become, I recommend this highly fascinating revelations.
 

 
Take your chance and take part in the quiz to win one of our two print-editions of “The Devil in Ermine” here.

So we came up with the idea to share the price and give badges of honour to all four of our KRA knowledge champions.

Zan has entered the Mr. Armitage-bloggosphere only a short while ago, but already has a lovely variety of posts and articles on her blog
 
Well, There You Go …
Musings, Meanderings and Mutterings
.
 
So my tip is to go over there and have a look. Her way of seeing the fandom anew is very refreshing and brings so much heartfelt warmth into fandom and it is a joy to follow her way of discovery.
 
For KRA-Week, she has a special report about how she discovered Mr. Armitage and his interest for King Richard III:
 
The Newbie Files … King Richard Week 2012
 
At the end of the KRA-Week, to present a new beginning of fandom, is something special. What better way to conclude our celebrations for Mr. Armitage and King Richard III.
May many fans find the refreshing and encouraging effect of fandom and supporting Mr. Armitage and his ‘royal project’.
 
Thank you for celebrating KRA-Week with us!

    Leicestershire Revisited

    Richard Armitage Birthday Week 2012

     

    photo: goleicestershire

     
    The BBC series “Kibworth”, with historian Michael Wood, (broadcast on PBS) renewed a desire to return (in cyberspace) to that midlands county. Which was already stimulated by the history of Richard III and the Battle of Bosworth. Oh, and that other Richard, of our acquaintance, celebrating a birthday this month….
     

    richardarmitagenet Candids Gallery

     
    Kibworth, a village a few miles outside Leicester, was revealed by Michael Wood as a complete microcosm of “the story of England”, from pre-Roman settlement to the present day. During a months’-long sojourn in the village (almost of town proportion now), Mr. Wood explored the origins and progress of this supposedly unremarkable part of the county. He did so with the enthusiastic participation of the inhabitants. Kibworth represents a microcosm of the races/nationalities who have become embedded in the DNA of England. Continuing research by DNA scientists is not conclusive yet on the subject of who is a Celt and who isn’t. No doubt that debate will continue.
     
    Leicestershire – worth a visit? Leicester itself, now with a growing Asian population. Yet another layer of the long-existing multi-culturalism of England, with waves of settlers and invaders dating from the Bronze Age. Britain has always been a melting-pot.
     

    Leicester Guildhall. Wikipedia: attribution: NotFromUtrecht

     

    Digging up History… (in spades)

     
    Sufficient research has been done to suggest that the bones of Richard III probably did not end in the River Soar, but at some point, were removed to Greyfriars in Leicester and properly interred there. Thanks to some Tudors, Greyfriars has long since been pounded into the ground. An archaeological project, sponsored by the University of Leicester, and the City Council, among other supporters, has begun a dig. If they are correct about the evidence that there was a coffin containing the remains of the last Plantagenet king, discovery, and DNA testing will add to the historical record of England.
     
    More than five hundred years since Richard III was brutally murdered by the party of the Lancastrian invader Henry (Tudor) VII, the question of Richard’s culpability in the apparent deaths of his pre-adolescent nephews, remains disputed. The last Plantagenet died at Bosworth, Leicestershire, August 22, 1485. August 22nd. Time for celebration of life.

    Leicestershire and Richard Armitage

     
    Although Mr. Armitage has grown (yes, grown. And grown (And grown…) to be a citizen of the world, as well as of London, the heart of England, no doubt, had been a good grounding site for an English actor. And Leicestershire is in the heart of England. Perhaps the heart of England. Perhaps Mr. Armitage will play the role of his namesake one day, in a realistic production of that tudorised king. For the numerous among our support group who are not overly fond of beards, they will be relieved to know that clean-shaven was the norm with the 15th C man….
     
    And during this week, we wish Mr. Armitage :
     

    MANY HAPPY RETURNS!

    To all fans of Mr. Armitage, I need not introduce Servetus and her blog Me+Richard Armitage.
    Her witty, thoughtful and thought-provoking articles, comments and examinations of fandom in all varieties and forms, is such an entertaining and addictive read that (Psst…, I must reveal it, I just can’t keep it a secret) she had 1.000.000 hits on her blog lately. If that is not a reason to celebRAte, especially during the KRA Week?
     

    CongRAtulations, Servetus !
     
    She posts about King Richard III and Richard Armitage each day of the event week, varying from historic to funny.
    We have linked to her posts in the daily news (and I must give you a further recommendation – watch out for her tips to solve the scavenger hunt questions!):
    Day 5 Quiz Tips
     

    As creator of these wonderful quiz questions, she is allowed to do that. So Servetus is not only our blogger of the day, but also our quizmaster of the KRA Week 2012.
     
    Her questions are tough, but a real champion can’t be determined by too easy questions, can he/she?
     
    As I check the incoming results, I can further reveal, we have some who are on a really good way to become our KRA Champion 2012 !
    And should I also reveal a bit about our price for the Champion? – As the final form depends a bit on the choice of the winner, we had not posted images of the price so far. We wanted to make it a badge of honour, the name of the winner will be added to one of the images on the side and the image put on a magnet, button or T-shirt, so the winner can choose what he/she prefers as a price and where best to show his/her championship.

    She recomments how best to Spend our Money! ?
     
    Servetus’ analysis of a KRA-fangirl’s mind is one further example of her exceptional examinations! – Richard III won’t make me squee. Right?
     
    And I must also reveal, Servetus gives tips and hints in her latest post to help with solving the quiz questions, so a look at all her latest posts is quite helpful, if you need tips for the scavenger hunt.
