Don’t have a drink in your hand as you read the following:-
“ . . . Princess Anne Neville of Bohemia, who was looked to as the embodiment of virtue and modesty, rode side-saddle across Europe prior to her marriage to King Richard III in 1472. Their marriage lasted three years, as King Richard died in battle in 1485 and was the last English king to perish in combat in the final skirmish of the War of the Roses . . . .
“ . . . King Richard is the uncle of Queen Elizabeth II, many generations and branches of the royal family apart . . . .”
No, I did NOT make it up! Honest. It’s here in black and white.
And this post has the honour of being number 2500 for the blog!
