The following article by Annette Carson is an important and interesting read, proving that when the Tudors had gone, Richard was once again spoken of with honesty. Thank you Annette.
Henry VIII did not give his sister Margaret in marriage to the King of f Scotland. That was Henry VII. Surprising that a historian as careful as Ms. Carson should have made such an error.
That aside, this is an interesting and enlightening post. However, perhaps the Scottish sympathy for Richard III might have something to do with their support of ‘Perkin Warbeck.’
My personal opinion of the Stuarts is that, generally speaking, they weren’t any improvement on the Tudors, who were at least intelligent.
Ooops – mea culpa, I’ve corrected the footnote. Thanks for pointing it out.
