|KIng Richard III|
|Princes In The Tower|
Of course, you heard the news that the skeleton discovered under the car park in England really did turn out to be Richard III, right? Remember from Shakespeare, "A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse"? That would be the king! Also, I hope it isn't true that he killed the young princes that were imprisoned in the Tower of London. Let's say that they were allowed to live out their lives in some nice country estate somewhere, and their descendants are happily going about their lives not knowing that they are of royal blood. (Hmmm...I have always thought my Richard carries himself in a very regal manner, I wonder....)
Speaking of which, did anyone else think about the woman in Canada that they had to contact about the DNA testing? They did get in touch with her and she told them that her son was living in London, and it was he whose photo you have seen with his cheek being swabbed for the DNA which proved to be a match. I wonder..how exactly did they contact this woman in Canada? Could it have been a short letter like the following?
Dear Mrs. ____,
We have found some ancient bones in a car park in Leicester, England and we very much believe that they might be the remains of Richard III. We think that you are the descendant and we wish to check your DNA. Please contact us as soon as possible.
P.S. This might sound something like a scam, but we are
British, after all, and we are deadly serious.
I suppose they had to be absolutely certain and check the DNA but why didn't they just ask me? I could have told them, just look at that jaw-line, can't you tell that it is a perfect match! Now, will he be reburied in a cathedral? Is he a true king or a usurper of the realm? I wonder...
