Richard III

Be the first to review this product

Not many people would claim to be saints, or alternatively, consider themselves entirely without redeeming qualities. Some are unquestionably worse than others, but few have been held in greater infamy than Richard Plantagenet, afterwards Duke of Gloucester and, later still, King Richard III. Richards character has been besmirched as often as it has been defended, and the arguments between his detractors and supporters still rage after several centuries. Was he a ruthless hunchback who butchered his way to the throne, a paragon of virtue who became a victim of Tudor propaganda, or (as seems more likely) something in between?Some would argue that a true biography is impossible because the letters and other personal documents required for this purpose are simply not available, but David Baldwin has overcome this through an in-depth study of Richards dealings with his contemporaries and of information gleaned from the recent discovery of his skeleton. This comprehensive biography tracks Richard's journey from birth to death, and this new edition is brought right up to date with an account of the king's reburial in Leicester Cathedral. The fundamental question Baldwin has answered iswhat was Richard III really like.
