I know it wasn't you mate. A few months back at least four of their members joined the forum with, in my opinion, a paticularly nasty agenda to get a good friend of ours. I have nothing against them joining and participating here provided they are open about it but underhandedness seems to be the modus operandi of that particular crowd and I for one have no wish to have my comments on Richard broadcast on their site. That is why I am a member of historum.

Not a partisan type myself nor a fan of societies mainly working in their own interests. If people want ideas and debate, they should generate their own. Just saying ;-)

I am of the same opinion. This type of behaviour causes friction.

I tried to become a member a while back before I came on here, you on earth do you get on that forum. I can only lurk in there and I don't get to see some of those posts. We must be doing something right if they are talking about us I can not understand why some of them have good knowledge of the Wars of the Roses and Richard III, but hide their knowledge on a tiny unknown forum.

Those people that had join back then have not been around for a long time, their agenda did not very far. I am glad we have some new members that have a good knowledge of Richard III and the Wars of the Roses and the forum will be all the better for their presence.

Just discovered this thread and it opens up a lot of interesting opportunities for discussion.

I read Wilkinson's book 'Richard, the Young King to Be' recently and she put forward the view that he had been intended for the church and therefore his early education would have been a little different to that of a boy intended to be a knight.

I wonder if this coloured his approach to administration? He does have a reputation for being a notable administrator and his only parliament did go some way to helping ordinary people. It was, I think, the first parliament whose proceedings were published in English so that more people could understand for themselves what had been discussed and agreed.

I have not read that book, If the author has just written about Richard when he was young it was before the Tudor PR had started to write about him.
There are plenty of accounts that he was interested in making fairer laws for his people in the North.
I have read that William Caxton was at his sister's court in Burgundy and they may well met when Richard was in exile, which may started Richard to have been known for his love for books.

Here's an article about Richard III's Effect on US Laws
I don't know the least bit about US laws (other than gained in movies and tv shows ), but to me the effect seems quite impressive.

Here is the article (by the Canadian branch of the R3S with the basic information to which the article above refers.
