#Bosworth1485 - Shakespeare’s Richard III, (Act 5, Scene 3)

Richard, thy wife, that wretched Anne thy wife, That never slept a quiet hour with thee, Now fills thy sleep with perturbations To-morrow in the battle think on me, And fall thy edgeless sword: despair, and die!

“‘The reason is women.” He slammed his book shut. ‘Women make life impossible until the man has to be the one to end it. There is no working it out past a certain point. How can anyone work out the lunacy?’

Mr. Nobley took a ragged breath, then his face went red as he seemed to realize what he’d said, where he was.” – Austenland by Shannon Hale

Richard III is Killed at Bosworth Field
22 August 1485
King Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field, on this day in British history, 22 August 1485. The Battle of Bosworth Field was the last significant battle of the Wars of the Roses, the civil war between the Houses of Lancaster and York that raged across England in the latter half of the 15th century. The battle was won by the Lancastrians whose leader, Henry Tudor, Earl of Richmond, became the first English monarch of the Tudor dynasty. His opponent, Richard III, the last king of the House of York, was killed in the battle, and historians view Bosworth Field as marking the end of the Plantagenet dynasty, making it a defining moment of English and Welsh history.
