When the monks at Greyfriars buried Richard III, the didn’t do him justice. Neither did Shakespeare when he turned the former King into one of literature’s greatest villains. Today, we know the twisted remains discovered beneath a car park in Leicester are, most likely (a DNA match to his maternal family), those of the infamous King Richard III during who reign two of the Tower of London’s most legendary and tragic ghosts, those of his nephews Edward and Richard, took up residence. The remains indicate that Richard, who was killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, suffered at least two fatal injuries to the head and was buried hastily.
