Posted January 23rd, 2013 at 03:04 AM by Ricardian

Richard III Society UK

Richard III Society US


These are the main websites of the Society, both offer an overwhelming(!) wealth of information for those interested in the history of Richard III and his period.

    The Society of Friends of King Richard III was created in 1978 to exonerate and promote the life and memory of Richard III

    Do you not see a clash between unbiased historical research here and an agenda driven "exonerate" Society ?

    Hm... I'm not sure how to understand what you say.
    (as an aside: I struggle with the format of the blog + comment feature, so I hope I didn't miss anything).

    The links that I gave were to the two main websites of the original Society, in the UK and the US, and as far as I know they work closely together. I planned to list also other branches and groups in due course.
    I'm aware that there are other organisations, some of which seem to disagree with the goals of the original Society.

    Ahh - perhaps I'm beginning to understand. Could there be a confusion of names? (Echoes of Monty Python!) The Richard III Society (UK + US + some others) are trying to do unbiased research based on academic standards.
    Then there is the The Society of Friends of King Richard III of which I know not enough to give a valid opinion, but if recent press articles are true, they are of the "exonerating" kind. ;-)
