Richard the Third by Paul Murray KendallI took a long time to read this, more so as I got through it, because I was delaying reaching the end, even though I know what happens. I didnt want Richard to die. Im a die-hard Ricardian, always have been, always will be. I dont believe Richard was evil, I dont believe he murdered the Princes in the Tower, and Ill hate Henry VII until the day I die. I believe Richard was a good man who perhaps should never have been king, a man who believed in justice, loyalty and honesty, and who was more concerned for the common man that any king before or since. I believe that had he survived Bosworth he could have been one of our greatest kings, and that tragedy just breaks my heart. This is one of the most balanced accounts of Richards life Ive ever read and really highlights just how much of what we consider history is the result of centuries of slander, propaganda and obfuscation.

Rowse, Chicago Tribune. I have tried to indicate clearly, either in the text or in the notes, what is fact and what is my own conjecture; and for conjectures of any importance I have given the reasons or evidence on which they are based. If the events of Richard's life and the general shape of his character had been previously established, I would probably have given freer rein to speculation. As it is, I have sought to hew him out of the facts, or as close an approach to the facts as I could make. Convert currency. Add to Basket.
