Richard III and the Murder in the Tower

Book - 2011
Rate this:
Richard III is accused of murdering his nephews (the 'Princes in the Tower') in order to usurp the throne of England. Since Tudor times he has been painted as the 'black legend,' the murderous uncle. However, the truth is much more complicated and interesting. Rather than looking at all the killings Richard III did not commit, this book focuses on the one judicial murder for which we know that he was responsible.

This book is mistitled. It is a scholarly exploration of exactly WHEN Richard III discovered that his nephews were illegitimate, and how he reacted to the news. The discussion of the murder of his nephews in the tower is limited to one or two paragraphs.
