  •  Richard III was lied about (0+ / 0-)

    Since Henry VII rewrote the history books after actually becoming king in 1498.

    Richard won the Battle of Bosworth Field, only to be accidentally killed by his late-arriving grand-nephew Lord Edmund Plantagenet at the end of the battle.  His nephew, Richard IV, reigned from 1485 until his untimely demise along with the rest of his family due to poisoned wine in 1498.

    All was revealed exactly 500 years after Richard's ascension to the throne.

    Fake candidates nominated by the GOP for the recalls: 6 out of 7. Fake signatures on the recall petitions: 4 out of 1,860,283.
