i don't think at that point it even mattered. i think at that point the people were just sick and tired, wanted peace and a good ruler.

henry 7th gave them that.

problem solved ;)

Yes he did.....after bumping off a few Yorkist remnants ;)
Given a chance I think Richard would have been a very wise and fair ruler and there would have been peace in the land, if the way he managed the north of the country is anything to go by.

At least that means no more school!  ;D

Thanks ilyala. Yes, as a monarch, Henry ruled.  ;D

I certainly agree with that, whatever anyone thinks of his character.  . .

i don't think he was as bad as people made him out to be. he was living in an insecure environment (take into consideration people thought of him as just another king... after the wars of the roses) and he had to make it secure... very few people would have been more mercifull than him

He was very merciful - he preferred to fine rather than execute.  ;D And as a result, he made England rich. He also very cleverly abolished private armies, one of the contributing factors of the Wars of the Roses.
