Court rules that king does not deserve a Catholic burial

June 2, 2014

According to The Telegraph:

When Richard III was hacked to death in rural Leicestershire in 1485, the royal House of York fell, bringing an end to the Plantagenet line…. Many people see his death as the end of the English middle ages.

…the ruling of the High Court last Friday truly made history, as three judges decided that Richard III should be buried at the scene of his violent defeat, and not in York.

…the fact the remains are those of a monarch could be seen to take the case into exceptional territory, where wider considerations are at play.
