Photo of the day: The White Rose

Today is Bosworth Field Day. On this day in 1485, Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England, was slain at the Battle of Bosworth Field by Henry Tudor, later Henry VII. Don't believe Shakespeare. Old Will was wrong about Richard. He was neither a hunchback nor a murderer. Don't believe me? Find out for yourself. The white rose was the symbol for the House of York, of which Richard was a member.

Whoever said "there's no such thing as bad publicity" didn't know what he was talking about. Alas, poor Richard!
