I dont get this. Wasnt he already buried? Why did they have to **** about with moving his corpse to some other place. Not to mention all that remembrance BS. Whats to remember when the guy kicked his bucket over 500 years ago?

Massive arguments between Leicester and York prevented him being reburied. Went through the courts as the team that dug him up wanted him to remain buired in Leicester whereas long distant relations wanted him reburied in York as he was from the Hosue of York.

Remembrance stuff was because its not every day that you bury/rebury a royal.
