Richard III: Unveiling day arrives for skeleton that would be king

“A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse!”

“Richard rode out from Leicester to meet his death on the Bosworth battlefield on 22 August 1485. The crown that rolled from his head ended the Plantagenet reign, and the Tudor victor became Henry VII. By some accounts Richard’s body was stripped on the battlefield, brought back to Leicester slung over the pommel of a horse, and humiliatingly exposed in the town centre.” [The Guardian]

  1. At least he had the guts to put his sword where his mouth was. No “leader” has ever done so since. Maybe Khrushchev at Stalingrad. Any others?
