King Richard III was one power hungry, mean son of a beyotch. He was the younger brother of King Edward IV. These were House of York jokers, or yorkers.
Richard had a singular deformity, a twisted spine. Hang onto that.
But what about his bones?
Anyway, Richard was like Karl Rove and he resented Henry IV, who was more like Clinton. It was peaceful during Henry IV's reign. People were happy.
King Henry IV had two sons, King Edward V and Richard Duke of York. These were the adorable little Princes in the Tower. They disappeared and were likely murdered by Richard III, their uncle.
I'm hungry! Where are the bones?
SSSH! That no-good honey badger, King Richard III! He didn't care who he killed or murdered most foul!
Richard III was king for only about two years, from 1483 to 1485. He got whacked at the Battle of Bosworth, Leicestershire when he was 32 years old. The forces of Henry VII whacked him like Big Pussy.
Richard III was the last King of England to die in battle.
Kings get their own security and are into getting naked in Las Vegas and preserving the environment these days. That's how they roll!
Richard III's distant cousin, Henry VII (1457-1509), succeeded him and ended the War of the Roses. Henry VII was the great-great-grandson of Edward III.
So Honey Badger thought that incest was best! Just like my mom and dad! But what about the bones? Come ON!
Settle down, you! We don't talk about your parents ! They have webbed feet!
Here's what happened. There was a grungy parking lot in Leicester, UK. The place has seen better days, but was once the site of a Franciscan friary called Greyfriars. The friary was demolished during the 1530s.
You mean they fractured the friary?
Archeologists researched the extensive collection of friary documents until they had to start wearing bifocals and were talking to themselves in some kind of strange clicking language.
The scientists started an excavation last August. They unearthed the remains of the Greyfriars cloisters and chapter house and the church.
Pssst! Xenonlit said "unearthed the cloisters"! Teee heee!
Records indicated that Richard was buried under the choir area that lies in the center of the church.
All those singers, doing gospel music and getting happy had no idea that they were singing or dancing on his grave?
I will hurt you. So, anyway, the architects dag.
Shut up! I'm old. A word slips up now and again.
According to the UK Guardian, The DNA of the bones was verified and the bones prove to be those of King Richard III.
Michael Ibsen is a Canadian born carpenter who is believed to be a distant relative of Richard III. His DNA was used to confirm the identities of the bones.
Isn't he supposed to get royalties or
something? That Canadian guy? What if
he has to smuggle maple syrup and
cheese if his carpentry does not pay off!
I will ignore you.
In celebration of the discovery, I
present “King Richard's Bones”
NO! Not that! Put that away!
