Questions

Why do people portray Richard III as  horrible man?

-Shakespeare made big impact. Shakespeare made all monarchs like villains because at the time a lot of them were killers and conquerors. Shakespeare exaggerated a lot, especially about his hunch back.

Did The Real Richard III Resemble Shakespeare’s Horrible Creation?

-A lot of what he described was not factual and there is not enough evidence to state that he was that bad
