We once thought we'd left our child in Tesco, dear........

Didn't help when you rang up Asda to ask if they'd seen a troll anywhere. I was so upset that I didn't sleep for a week.//.wdsf.a.

For the lovely newcomers to Under The Bridge - we found little Angelina Trollington in the boot of the car a few weeks later. :lol:

How have you 2 managed to hack into the rep system?! :eek:

Well probably because Richard was a member of the House of York

The car park was built later, it wasn't there at the time. Also, since York lost the battle, they couldn't exactly control where he was going to be buried. You could have just looked these facts up on the internet yourself.

True. However, the Wars of the Roses were most certainly not a conflict between Yorkshire and Lancashire. In fact, the Yorkist power base was centred strongly in the south, while Lancastrians were strong in the north and, later, the midlands. These were family names (based on nobler titles only), not geographically relevant terms.

Because Richard III is clearly a lie.

Why don't you post rubbish instead of trying to establish points?

Yeah I know, when first learning about this I remember thinking how weird it was for the south west to be strongly Lancastrian. However, in life Richard was especially fond of the North and packed his household with northerners which further strengthened the sense of a north-south divide. IMO he would have wanted to be buried more up north than Leicester.

He was the son of Richard, Duke of York, and thus belonged to the House of York and throughout a great deal of his Yorkist brother Edward IV's reign, he was based in the North of England. He was the Duke of Gloucester and so obviously he is linked to several places in the country so many places can claim the right to hold his body but I don't think Leicester has as strong a claim. I don't believe that he should have been buried in Leicester because he was found there; if Queen Elizabeth II's remains were discovered in Ukraine in many years time, they would return her to England. Also his death marked the defeat of the House of York so I doubt he'd want to be remotely near the location of the Battle of Bosworth but that's just what I'd be thinking.

At least the House of York was still conserved by making Elizabeth of York queen
