That fabric softener teddy bear...oooh I'm 'a hunt that little bitch down.
Is he the reason there were no more kings named Richard?
For some reason, a lot of people in this thread seem to be under the impression this guy is world-known. He's not. Richard the Lionheart is known all over the world for having fought in the Crusades. Henry VIII is for having transformed his country into a protestant one. Elisabeth I is world known for having defeated the Spanish Armada (although she had weather on her side, but that's besides the point). Queen Victoria for her huge empire.
No one outside Britain knows about Richard III besides the people that are really interested in history so saying he's one of the most famous monarchs in history is quite a leap. Don't get me wrong though, I'm not trying to invalidate this discovery or say that it's useless or slander this king, I'm just noticing a lot of people overestimating the awareness of his existence among foreigners.
What has been made by QQ can be unmade by QQ!!!
Someone educate me on Richard the third.
What year was his reign? How did he die? And why the hell is he buried under a car park? (WTF is a car park? is that where cars go to play golf?)
