The Tudors / Re: Richard III remains found & identified

Interesting information about the spine. I wonder how much Shapespeare exaggerated it.

Quite a bit. Shakespeare (after his references) had Richard as hunchbacked, lame, and with a withered arm. Richard's feet weren't recovered but his legs and arms appear healthy, and his scoliosis wouldn't have caused a hunchback.

One shoulder would have been higher than the other. His scoliosis is slightly greater than Usain Bolt's, but not much.

The Windsors / Re: Government starts effort to change succession law

It would be rather stupid not to change the rules now, because the next time a woman (or someone married to a Catholic) is passed over there'll be a legal challenge here in Canada, and the challenge will win without question or discussion. The succession rules as they currently stand are absolutely unconstitutional and would not stand for a moment if challenged.
