welcome back from the legend

The news from UK, that the recently found skeleton was identified as Richard Ⅲ's was exciting!

I don't know at all if he was a terrible tyrant as many books described, or a good lord as some people insist. What we think about him is maybe influenced by which books we've read, or which movie or drama we've seen... at least for us non-English.

I've always liked his character in Shakespeare's play, cunning but brave, wise, practical, ironic and somehow humorous. Also I was impressed very much by the fictional image of him in the classical boys novel "The Black Arrow" by R.L.Stevenson - one of my favorite Stevenson's works. In this historical romance Richard has a small but impressive role and I really love him so I hope the real Richard Ⅲ would have been a good king :D

I'm interested in how British people think about him and about this news...
