a hearse, a hearse

Richard III
the apparent confirmation that the skeleton found under a car park in Leicester is that of Richard III gives me an excuse to use this picture, which is the best-known portrait of him. Perhaps now his reputation will begin to recover from the Shakespeare spin.  And perhaps now he will get the burial his memory deserves, as a great king of England. Oh, and if you haven't read 'The Daughter of Time' by Josephine Tey, then do so.
