    . . .since he went before Parliament to refute the rumors that he had improper designs on her.  That documented appearance before Parliament is one of the reasons I think he's guilty of killing the princes in the tower.  If he cared that much about bad PR, he would have produced those princes to refute the rumors that he off'ed them.

    •  My money is on Henry VII for the (9+ / 0-)

      murder of the princes. Of course, we will never know, but Henry certainly made sure to kill all the other claimants to the throne.

      You are probably correct that Richard would not have married Elizabeth, but stranger turns of events have happened in English history. But he would have married someone and likely had other children. And Elizabeth would not have likely married Henry Tudor so there would have been no Henry VIII or Elizabeth I.
