Críticas: "Modern histories are more understanding, and this includes this thoughtful biography by "Times Literary Supplement "history editor Horspool (Alfred the Great, 2014, etc.), who stresses that Richard (1452-1485) was a man of his times, although they were nasty times. Among the better histories on this subject . . . delivering a densely detailed account of a man who was no more villainous than the average 15th-century baron." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"Excellent . . . this unbiased and scholarly work makes a fine contribution to the historical record." "Publishers Weekly"

"[R]eaders have a great guide to the issues in historian Horspool. Steeped in the sources . . [an] intelligent, judicious examination of Richard III." "Booklist"

"[A] refreshing, incisive and fluent biography that is laced with that skepticism demanded by his subject. This is an intelligent person s life of Richard, strong in ascertainable fact . . . [w]ith characteristic precision and a pinch of droll humour." "The Times"

"David Horspool examines all aspects of Richard III's life with a view to impartiality and truth as far as it can be discovered centuries after the death of the monarch. Instead of painting Richard III as a villain or a victor, Horspool reviews the facts and provides readers with plausible insights into the personality and life of a fascinating figure of British history. In these pages, we are treated to a complete picture of Richard III beginning with his birth at Fotheringhay Castle to his death in the Battle of Bosworth Field." "Bookreporter.com""
