    RIchard III had survived Bosworth and gone on as king? Certainly his activity since having kingship conferred on him was at a high rate and progressive for those times.

    Is this a subtle way of implying Richard III is actually Richard I
    I do not understand your post? Richard III died on Bosworth field not Richard I (as Duke of Normandy he also went there as Richard IV) who died in France. Not sure what you are alluding to.

    It needs to be substantive that Red Leicester is actually made in Leicester before it can go on the list...

    Even the renowed website http://www.britishcheese.com/redleicester is not clear on the subject. Seems to suggest its made in Leicestershire, not Leicester specifically.

    Strike it from the list, say I.

    I once had a chinese (meal) in Leicester..was alright, nowt special.

    Not rhyming slang but a dead king.

    I just don't understand why there's such a fuss about burying him.

    Because Richard III from the House of York, should have been buried in Yorkshire.

    Some good points raised in this thread... The history books were written by the victors and Richard III was victim of Shakespeare pro-Tudor propaganda.

    The War of the Roses wasn't about the two counties but a power struggle between clans. With nobility fighting on the side of whoever offered them money, land and titles. It was common for them to swap allegiances. Interesting fact is that at the Battle of Bosworth there were 3 armies, as Sir Stanley stood on the sidelines and watched the battle unfold until it was clear who was going to win, then Sir Stanley joined in on the winning side and delivered the death blow to Richard.

    Henry VII claim to the throne is so tenuous. The Tudors would have never reigned if they did not kill the last of the Plantagenets at Bosworth. It makes you wonder... There is no such thing as the Royal Family, as there as been many different lines who have seized the throne one way or another... Wessex, House of Normandy, Plantagenet, Tudor, Stewart, Hanover, Saxe-Coberg Gotha.
