The great personal story is true, and the novel is sad but interesting.

I loved THE SUNNE IN SPLENDOR and I liked this book as well. I want to know more about Richard.

Regarding THE PRINCES IN THE TOWER, I think Buckingnam may have been the culprit, in the same way that Reginald FitzUrse, Hugh de Moreville, William de Tracy, and Richard le Breton murdered Thomas Becket several centuries earlier. These things happened in those times. Great kings rarely ascended to thrones peacefully.

Did you know that within the past few decades the skeletons of two small boys, thought to be those princes, were found under the stone rubble of an obscure collapsed staircase at the Tower of London?
