You made a statement which was not accurate - I merely pointed out that Richard had three children which he provided for.
Well, I imagine he could have provided quite adequately for his children without deposing and murdering his nephews. I doubt it is what his brother would have considered 'loyalty'. And it did him no good, he was king for only two years before he was killed at Bosworth. i doubt very much that his children figured much in his calculations, I think he was motivated purely by ambition.

So, Louise C, when did he start to be motivated by ambition?
