Richard III Coin Pack - AngelRichard III Coin Pack - Angel
Richard iii was not a lucky King of England. Perhaps because he did not live up to his job. First, appointed protector for the two young princes, the son's of King Edward IV, he made himself becoming King, while the two sons after their father's death in the year ended up in the tower of London. Once King, Richard had to face the Tudor Henry in the famous battle at Bosworth Field where he was killed and instead of him, Henry VII was appointed king.
Lately, however, King Richard iii rose to new fame, as in the year 2012 his skeleton was discovered in Leicester and identified as that of him.
