May 6, 2014 - Richard III: A Blood-thirsty Tyrant and Killer?

When one mentions the last Plantagenet king, Richard III, many colorful vocabulary words come to mind: evil, murderous, hunch-backed, and incestuous. But what was this third York brother really like? Did he really kill his nephews, poison his wife, and bed his niece, or was he as innocent as a king could be in the fifteenth century?
Biography post will follow later this evening.

May 6, 2014 - Introduction to, well, Me.

I am not the type to give my actual name, so my readers may call me Ophelia. I am a nineteen year old scholar in pursuit of my doctorate in English history, primarily the Plantagenet and Tudor eras. The purpose of this blog is for me to rant about my historical obsessions, and to provide accurate information for my fellow erudite. Enjoy!
