Nice book, interesting about Richard I, not so with Richard II or Richard III.

These were The True Tragedy of Richard III, an anonymous play performed first inand Richardus Tertius, a drama written in Latin by Dr. Thomas Legge's, and performed in To the latter play Shakespeare owes nothing.

But, there are similarities between The True Tragedy of Richard II and Shakespeare's drama. The most notable of these similarities is Richard's plea for a horse. As a result, Shakespeare’s portrayal of Richard III as a vile, hateful villain is in part designed to set up a glorious ascension for Henry VII at the end of the play.

Henry overthrew Richard, after all, and the worse Richard seems, the better Henry will seem for defeating him; moreover, the better Henry seems, the more likely the Tudors are. Richard - Also called the duke of Gloucester, and eventually crowned King Richard III.

Deformed in body and twisted in mind, Richard is both the central character and the villain of the play. He is evil, corrupt, sadistic, and manipulative, and he will stop at nothing to become king.

His intelligence, political brilliance, and dazzling use of language keep the audience fascinated—and his subjects and rivals.

England has been enjoying newfound peace under the reign of Edward IV. This tranquility doesn't last long: Richard immediately sets out to steal the crown and takes out plenty of his. This play has been one of Shakespeare's most popular, entirely because of the evil brilliance of its villain hero, Richard Duke of Gloucester, later King Richard III.

Inheriting the Tudor blackening of the king whom Henry VII overthrew, Shakespeare turned him into the evil genius epitomising the vices that led to the self-destruction of the Plantagenet dynasty in the War of the Roses.

The True Tragedy of Richard III Apart from the question of "Richardus Tertius", the author of "The True Tragedy" relied upon the standard historical sources of his generation for the story of Richard — principally Edward Hall 's chronicle on the Wars of the Roses, and the chronicle by John Hardyng later continued by Richard Grafton.

Richardus Tertius was more closely imitated by the True Tragedie of Richard the Third. This play, in turn, is the more likely source for Shakespeare’s Richard.[67].

Sutton. Today the role of Richard III is considered an actor's dream – so much so that Oscar-winner Al Pacino (a.k.a. the Godfather) was inspired to direct the documentary film Looking for Richard (), which explores the riveting character at the center of one of Shakespeare's best plays.

(Psst. Among the earliest works of fiction about Richard III was a play entitled Richardus Tertius, written by playwright Thomas Legge in Legge depicted Richard III Author: Talal Al-Khatib.These plays included Thomas Legge’s Latin version,Richardus Tertius (), and the anonymous True Tragedy of Richard III (publ.
