Richard III: A Pitkin Guide (Royalty)

Richard III: A Pitkin Guide (Royalty)

by Michael St . John Parker (Author), JaneDrake (Editor), G . W . O . Woodward (Author)


The reign of Richard III was one of the shortest in English history: yet the King himself was one of the most enigmatic personalities to have occupied the throne. Only 31 at the time of his death, Richard in his brief career demonstrated an extraordinary range of contradictory qualities - staunch loyalty and dissimulating perfidy, dignified generosity and ruthless self-interest, scrupulous honesty in government and a cynical manipulativeness. From the later 18th century onwards, he has been a hero for those who are drawn to lost causes.
