Sometimes being King doesn't bring happiness. Interesting historical peace. Think that I will settle for for a tranquil and serene life by serving the cat that owns me. At least I will live longer.

Noted. That was interesting! I can't believe that he was 'missing' (my word) for so long...a King w/ no marked grave?! Love to hear/see the specifics.

His fame and past live on an on!
We've seen the last of good King Richard;
Lift up your glass to good King John!'

I think the "Richard" and "John" in the rhyme given by Fred Krohn refer to a different Richard, that being Richard I (a.k.a.) Richard the Lionhearted, who was succeeded by his younger brother John, who is remembered as somewhat less than "good" (his own nobles cornered him at The Wash and forced him to sign the Magna Carta, or Great Charter, laying out the powers that the King had, or didn't have, and the rights of his subjects. Often seen as an advance towards democracy, because it specified that the nobles did have a role to play in governance, and the King was not all-powerful. This happened in 1215. Richard III died defending his crown 270 years later (1485).

the cast of his face made from the skull is somewhat haunting. I find the whole story about poor King Richard very interesting.

I always enjoy getting a glimpse into history through stories like this one. Science today gives us a great view of what life was like in the past.
