On 25th March 2015, when King Richard III - recently rescued from a municipal car park - was reburied in Leicester Cathedral, his beloved football team had just lost 4-3 to Tottenham Hotspur. Bottom of the Premier League and teetering on the edge of relegation, the future of Leicester City FC looked bleak. But, with King Richard finally at rest, things were about to change... Here, in his own words, Richard himself tells the remarkable story of how these 5,000-1 Premier League outsiders became champions - the goals, games, and dressing-room banter which led to a triumph of Shakespearean proportions for this team of heroes
The History of King Richard III by Thomas More( Book )

3 editions published in 1924 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Edward IV has recently died, leaving his offspring and potential future monarchs: twelve-year-old Edward, Prince of Wales, and Richard, Duke of York, aged nine. However, disturbing the natural succession is their uncle Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who will stop at nothing to become king." "Preying on the fears of his fellow-noblemen, Richard of Gloucester conspires with them to have the Princes abducted and imprisoned in the Tower. He then usurps the Princes' birthright, alleging that Edward, Prince of Wales, is a bastard and not a legitimate heir to the throne. In their place, Richard persuades London to accept him as king, and, according to More's account, has the Princes smothered to death to secure his position as monarch. However, it cannot be long before the conspiracy will begin to fall apart." "Much of what modern scholarship knows of Richard III stems from this biography - which itself proved the inspiration for Shakespeare's play - as does his notoriety as one of the most evil men in history. Freshly edited and presented alongside a glossary of archaic terms, this example of Early Renaissance English literature is now made available to a new generation of readers."--Jacket

This collection, published 1861-3 in the Rolls Series, contains documents from the period 1483 to 1509, when the House of York was replaced by the Tudor dynasty. It was one of many selections of source material on the period 1450-1550 compiled by James Gairdner (1828-1912), a long-serving archivist at the Public Record Office, whose work laid the foundations for much subsequent scholarship in British history. Volume 2 contains over 100 letters and records, some from European libraries, including extensive material on James IV of Scotland and his foreign diplomacy. The correspondents include rulers, dignitaries and prelates from all over Europe, writing in Latin, French and English. Prominent among them are Pope Julius II and the Archdukes of Austria. They cover a wide range of topics including the economy, trade, taxation, knighthoods, dynastic alliances, and indulgences. The volume opens with an introductory essay and a chronological summary of its contents

King Richard III by William Shakespeare( Book )

5 editions published between 1955 and 1981 in 3 languages and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"King Richard III is one of Shakespeare's most popular and frequently-performed plays. Janis Lull's introduction to this new edition, which is based on the First Folio, emphasizes the play's tragic themes - individual identity, determinism and choice - and stresses the importance of women's roles. A thorough performance history of stage and film versions shows how the text has been cut, rewritten and reshaped by directors and actors to enhance the role of Richard at the expense of other parts, especially those of the women."--Jacket

He was the last-born son of the Duke of York. He would become the last Plantagenet King of England. He is perhaps the most controversial monarch ever to rule that island nation. Certainly the most vilified. He was Richard III. This book reverberates with the sound of truth as it re-creates the life of this most complex and compelling man
