Recap #CrimeChat Feb 16, 2013

trauma on the skull of Richard IIIRecap #CrimeChat Feb 16, 2013

Subject: King Richard III

A fascinating 90+ minutes with a line-up of great people on Twitter all discussing the finding of Richard’s skeleton, his armour, his reign and fate, and of course … could he have killed his older brother’s children.

As requested, some links:

my mini-series on the cold case of the Princes in the Tower is here

the recap of the previous #crimechat is here

the website of the Canadian Branch of the Richard III Society is here

More links are in the verbatim thread so just copy and paste!

Two images I need to mention here. Matthew Ward, who joined in the chat, posted these in his Twitter stream.  The first is a sketch of the vault where King Edward IV and Queen Elizabeth Woodville are laid to rest. Inside that vault are several coffins as discussed in my mini-series.

The second image is a picture of what the armour of Richard III would have looked like. As you can see, the neck is raised to prevent decapitation. Most likely, he also wore a maille standard collar. Matthew discussed the trauma to the skull, the position of the wrists, his general impression of the skeletal remains and more. His twitter stream holds many more pictures of the weapons that may have been used in battle, armour, the facial reconstruction and more. Check it out!

Remember that if you check up on my mini-series that I am not a historian so naturally, I have missed a thing or two. I just wanted to be able to answer some simple questions such as:

1: was it understandable that people accused King Richard III of regicide? Yes.

2: would any prosecution be able to prove the charge of regicide? No.

3: was there an alternative explanation for the Princes’ disappearance? Yes.

If you decide to dig into the cold case of his nephews remember to include some history on France especially the minority rule of Charles VIII. Why? The prospect of Minority Rulers made a lot of people nervous regardless of how capable their regents or protectors were. This of course applies to Edward V as well.

As usual, the verbatim thread is below.

Cheers, V

Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA I always thought some loyal royalist would sneak it away and give it a burial but his hands were found tied, right? #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:06:21 +0000
Vidocq_CC@aliciakan Thank you, this is a cold case as his nephews are concerned so naturally, I am curious! :D #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:06:48 +0000
RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC Certainly from the placement of the arms, it is probable they were tied, yes. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:07:13 +0000

Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA Do you know whether there were ligature marks on the bones on his wrists? #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:08:06 +0000
Vidocq_CC@HistoryNeedsYou So do tell: any evidence that his wrists were tied? Thoughts about the missing feet? #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:08:46 +0000
HistoryNeedsYouWhen I saw the remains of #RichardIII I did not see a King but a man - fragile, mortal, flawed - just like me. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:09:04 +0000
RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC I don't. That might be a better question for @HistoryNeedsYou #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:09:27 +0000
RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC @HistoryNeedsYou As regards the missing feet, it is my understanding that the ground had been disturbed in the last C #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:10:47 +0000
HistoryNeedsYouThere were no ligature marks on the wrists of #RichardIII but that is not surprising.

Vidocq_CC@lilaclounge When would it have been impossible for scientists to find DNA on this particular skeleton? #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:14:39 +0000

RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC It is argued that they cannot date the bones enough to know whether they died in Richard's reign or Henry VII's #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:23:47 +0000
Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA Do you believe those bones to belong to the Princes? My money is on the coffins in Edward IV's tomb. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:23:57 +0000
LilacLounge@Vidocq_CC relatively speaking, only small amounts of DNA are needed - nanogrammes. The amount of bone wld depend on conditions #CrimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:24:27 +0000

RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC That is right. He was unmarried at the time. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:27:15 +0000
HistoryNeedsYou@Teknofish no, it is a stab wound with rondel or other tough blade up into brain cavity. No evidence of helmet bent into skull #CrimeChatSat, 16 Feb 2013 15:27:58 +0000

Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA I also wonder about the distance at which you can actually see a child behind the Tower's windows. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:25:41 +0000
RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC Unlikely that the "scientific" examination in 1933 was anything close to accurate.#crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:25:53 +0000
lisaquigley@RichardIIICA @vidocq_cc @historyneedsyou thank you all for a fascinating afternoon. I now want to quit my job and study history! #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:26:21 +0000

Vidocq_CC@richardIIIca Wait, Edward IV's daughters were sent North AFTER they were out of sanctuary, expenses show after RIII takes throne #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:27:14 +0000
RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC Well they were seen playing outdoors- archery and the like. But I think it is quite possible they were moved. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:27:16 +0000
RichardIIICA@lisaquigley @Vidocq_CC @HistoryNeedsYou You are welcome! Lots to read without being an historian! #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:28:00 +0000
Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA Correct, agreed re 1933 examination. The other one was done based on the 1933 one without actually seeing the bones #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:28:09 +0000
Vidocq_CC@lisaquigley LOL, mind the paycheck! See you later! #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:28:36 +0000

RichardIIICA@Vidocq_CC It has been suggested they were preparing for them to arrive. I think it might have been one or more of the boys #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:29:22 +0000

Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA Unfortunately we will never know. However, if we do not know we may not accuse someone of double regicide #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:30:45 +0000
RichardIIICAWell, I think I now have to do something else with my day. Thanks for the interesting chat @Vidocq_CC #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:30:49 +0000
Vidocq_CCAnd that folks, is what bugs me most. We still do not know but RIII is labelled a killer. Still. Without evidence. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:31:28 +0000
Vidocq_CC@RichardIIICA I know, about to sign off myself. Thank you so very much! #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:31:45 +0000
Vidocq_CCThank you to all who joined the discussion, RT-ed tweets, and who are reading up on Richard III. #crimechatSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:32:17 +0000
historylab_tomRT @HistoryNeedsYou: Flat slice to base of skull of #RichardIII matches historical description of Welshman using a halberd. #CrimeChat http://t.co/JrVEpuPoSat, 16 Feb 2013 16:32:25 +0000
