Today is the 523rd anniversary of the Battle of Bosworth, in which King Richard III of England was killed by a French invasion force under Henry Tudor. Tudor won the battle and proceeded to eliminate all heirs to the throne (which he was not) by a series of trumped-up charges that amounted to judicial murder. But, as someone once said, you can’t bring a capital charge against a pair of children. Seventeen years later, Henry announced that Richard had had his nephews, the who would have been Richard’s heirs, killed in secret. But Richard had made no attempt to hamper other heirs to the throne. Who would benefit by getting rid of the princes? Only Henry.
