Share this

English history fans are abuzz with the news of the discovery of the remains of Richard III, portrayed by Shakespeare as an evil, deformed, power-hungry  murderer of the Little Princes in the tower (his nephews).   But there are other  fictional treatments of Richard III and the many people  caught up in the endlessly fascinating story of the 15th century dynastic struggle known as the Wars of the Roses. Here are some of them.
