New edition includes discoveries seen on TV in The Princes in the Tower: The New Evidence
With the discovery of Richard the Third’s grave in 2012, and the film The Lost King in 2022, the eyes of the world have been drawn to the twists and turns surrounding King Richard III of England. And exciting new insights about the ‘Princes in the Tower’ have now been revealed by Philippa Langley on TV and in print. Annette Carson published the first of her five Ricardian books in 2008, Richard III: The Maligned King (revised editions in 2013 and 2023). She was a member of Langley’s Looking For Richard Project and her latest Missing Princes Project.
An acclaimed author and historian of Richard’s reign, Carson has produced this Small Guide as a deliberately brief, straightforward handbook summarizing the facts in a non-scholarly style. It has proved a popular guide outlining how he came to be the Tudors’ monster-villain figure, and how a backlash over this portrayal created the Great Debate in later years.
With Langley’s new evidence challenging the usual claims that Richard murdered the princes, predictably the Great Debate now rages again. In this small book is a wealth of historical background behind the centuries-old assumption that they were killed (and who killed them and why).
