An interesting article, but I was a little surprised to read: “The crowning of Richard III sang life back into Henry’s forgotten opus; he pressed on with the building in haste, and ordered the imprisonment of any individual who delayed it. By the end of his reign, the timber roof had been constructed, and the first five bays were in use.”
Imprisonment? It may well be true, I have no idea, but somehow this does not sound like Richard, unless….is it possible he had some personal plan for this chapel? For his family? This is just a wild guess on my part.
