Subject: RE: BS: Richard I I I
I was reminded, looking at the interested crowds lining the route, of the old funeral joke: "Give the people what they want, and they'll surely come."

He doesn't seem to have been at all a good person; in fact, rather than good or evil, he sounds as if he might have been under the influence of paranoia. The fury with which he was killed - stabbed again and again, in the arse and the head, would remind you of the attack on Gadaffi in his last moments.

I'd personally find it at the very least suspicious that the nephews under his care would have quietly disappeared from sight, and then never have been seen again. Cui bono?

As for the legitimacy of the current British royals, Henry VII, the first of the Tudors (shits of the first water) married the daughter of Edward VI, Elizabeth of York, so their children were a mixture of Plantagenet and Tudor (shudder).
