Richard III and the Princes in the Tower : The Possible Fates of Edward V and Richard of York Paperback / softback

Description

The fate of Richard III's nephews, Edward V and Richard of York, who disappeared after his coronation in 1483, remains controversial centuries after Thomas More's history and Shakespeare's play laid the blame on their conniving uncle.

Later writers, unconvinced of the king's guilt, have tried (with little success) to portray him as an innocent victim of Tudor propaganda, pointing instead to a number of unlikely culprits, including Henry Tudor and the Duke of Buckingham. This book sifts through the available evidence concerning the fate of the two boys.

The author examines the facts, discusses who may or may not have known key information and offers a reasoned solution to the question, What really happened to the two princes?
