"Our great King Richard would have been a wonderful king if only he'd had the time to prove it. Instead, he was cut down before his time at the Battle of Bosworth Field. People now don't realise what a debt is owed to him, especially for the laws of justice he put in place. We will never let him be forgotten, and hope one day to clear his name. Loyaulte Me Lie"

"King Richard was a noble, brave and just ruler.  He has been maligned through the centuries by rumor spread by those who, tragically, murdered him at Bosworth Field on August 22, 1485.  I have the deepest regard and admiration for Good King Richard and will always remember him with all my love.  I am deeply sorry he did not get to live his full lifetime and enjoy the happiness he deserved."
