Remains of Richard III Found

by Christopher Paul on February 5, 2013

Archeologists have found King Richard III’s remains:

On Monday, confirming what many historians and archaeologists had suspected, a team of experts at the University of Leicester concluded on the basis of DNA and other evidence that the skeletal remains were those of King Richard III, for centuries the most reviled of English monarchs. But the conclusion, said to have been reached “beyond any reasonable doubt,” promised to achieve much more than an end to the oblivion that has been Richard’s fate since his death on Aug. 22, 1485, at the Battle of Bosworth Field, 20 miles from this ancient city in the sheep country of England’s East Midlands.

He was only a king for two years and got that title questionably (depedning on who’s family you support) and was the subject of William Shakespeare.
