This book explores how memories and traces of the reign of Richard III survived a century and more to influence the world and work of William Shakespeare. Although Richard and his era had passed beyond living memory before Shakespeare wrote Richard III, Elizabethan England still abounded with the remains and vestiges of his reign. These traces took the form of inherited memories and household articles, established institutions and popular practices, textsand tombs. Charting the fortunes of these pieces of the past over the course of the sixteenth century, Shakespeare and the Remains of Richard III offers a new approach to the cultural history of the Tudor era,whilst shedding fresh light on the sources and preoccupations of Shakespeare's play.

Now with a new chapter. The official inside story of the life, death and remarkable discovery of history's most controversial monarch. On 22 August 1485 Richard III was killed at Bosworth Field, the last king of England to die in battle. His victorious opponent, Henry Tudor (the future Henry VII), went on to found one of our most famous ruling dynasties. Richard's body was displayed in undignified fashion for two days in nearby Leicester and then hurriedly buried in the church of the Greyfriars. Fifty years later, at the time of the dissolution of the monasteries, the king's grave was lost - its contents believed to be emptied into the river Soar and Richard III's reputation buried under a mound of Tudor propaganda. Its culmination was Shakespeare's compelling portrayal of a deformed and murderous villain, written over a hundred years after Richard's death. Now - in an incredible find - Richard III's remains have been uncovered beneath a car park in Leicester. The King's Grave traces this remarkable journey. In alternate chapters, Philippa Langley, whose years of research and belief that she would find Richard in this exact spot inspired the project, reveals the inside story of the search for the king's grave, and historian Michael Jones tells of Richard's fifteenth-century life and death. The result is a compelling portrayal of one of our greatest archaeological discoveries, allowing a complete re-evaluation of our most controversial monarch - one that discards the distortions of later Tudor histories and puts the man firmly back into the context of his times.

As a man's religious convictions can be considered fundamental to his character and behaviour, the nature of King Richard III's piety has been the subject of considerable debate. Much of this controversy has focused on the book of hours adopted by the king for his own private use following his coronation, and to which certain prayers, including that known as the Prayer of Richard III, were added. This study explores the manuscript and the Prayer's text.
