9780752452081: Richard III: The Maligned King

In 2012 Annette Carson formed part of the team that discovered King Richard III's mortal remains, verified in 2013 by forensics including DNA matching. In response to the recent upsurge of interest, her 2009 paperback has been updated with details of the discovery plus new illustrations, and a larger typeface for easier readability. Carson's premise is that for centuries the vision of Richard III has been dominated by the fictional creations of Thomas More and Shakespeare. Many voices, some of them eminent and scholarly, have urged a more reasoned view to replace the traditional black portrait. This book seeks to redress the balance by examining the events of his reign as they actually happened, based on reports in the original sources. Eschewing the overlay of assumptions so beloved by historians, she instead traces actions and activities of the principal characters, using facts and time-lines revealed in documentary evidence. In the process Carson dares to investigate areas where historians fear to tread, and raises many controversial questions.

About the Author:

After studying at the Royal College of Music, Annette Carson worked for several years in the entertainment industry while indulging a leisure interest in aerobatics, on which she is a renowned expert and has contributed to Encyclopædia Britannica. In a professional writing career of 30 years she has been an editor and an award-winning copywriter. Her last book before retirement was a biography of guitarist Jeff Beck. From 1990 to 2010 she worked in South Africa where she became involved with the Karoo Animal Protection Society, to which she still devotes energy since returning to the UK. She was the lead campaigner in a case against the selective freezing of pensions for British expatriates which reached the ECHR. The Richard III controversy first came to her attention at the time of Olivier’s
iconic film portrayal, and remains a topic of research on which she writes extensively. In 2011 she was invited by Philippa Langley to join the team searching for the king’s lost grave which found and exhumed Richard’s remains for honourable reburial.
