A universal truth: Richard III was a very respectable man….

from the article linked below

Here is an amusing read in the Horrible Histories vein…well, its title tells that much.

Richard III gets a mention. It seems Jane Austen questioned “…’whether Richard III really did kill his nephews, writing: he was a York [and] I am inclined to suppose him a very respectable man’…” But yes, it’s a send-up. Heaven knows what she really thought.

And of course he was a very respectable man. Ricardians have always known that, right? Is it not a truth universally acknowledged? 😊

That aside, this article is very entertaining and interesting.
