Richard III: Hero or Villain?

Michael Tunnicliffe

Thanks to Shakespeare’s mesmerising portrait of Richard III as a scheming and murderous king the last Plantagenet monarch has gone down in history as an all-time villain. Yet there exists a Richard III Society that maintains that he was a decent and honourable ruler and that crimes such as the disappearance of the Princes in the Tower should not be laid at his door. This course will examine the life and times of our most controversial king, and attempt to sift reality from dramatic licence – even if our story ends improbably in a car park in Leicester!
