Richard III's Bones
DNA analysis of the skeleton has not gone as smoothly as the investigators would like, but some DNA was extracted, and comparison of it with known Plantagenet descendants has certainly not ruled out identification with Richard.
So, I will grant provisional acceptance to these claims, and accept that this is probably Richard III. Cool. I wonder if the Crown will give him a royal burial somewhere nice -- York Minster, say? He was from the House of York -- or treat him like the criminal usurper the Tudors claimed him to be.
