The Richard III Foundation, Inc.
With its corporate office in the United States, the
Foundation has been established since 1993 with branches in the United Kingdom and Australia. The Foundation
seeks to challenge the popular view of King Richard III by demonstrating through
rigorous scholarship that the facts of Richard’s life and reign are in stark
contrast to the Shakespearian caricature.
The Foundation strives to advance research into all aspects of English
history during the period in which Richard lived, and the conflict known to
history as the “Wars of the Roses”.
The Foundation’s honorary patrons include British actor Robert Hardy, CBE, FSA,
and the distinguished historian, Prof. Anne Curry, F.R.Hist.S.
"I am a Ricardian, if that means that I wholly reject Tudor propaganda
against him, and firmly believe he was true to his motto "Loyaulte me Lie", and
that he, apart from being a first rate fighting man, shouldered all the
responsibilities that fell on him both as Gloucester, and as King. His death was
a tragedy, a sacrifice to end the civil wars," stated Honorary Patron Robert
The Foundation sponsors a variety of academic events,
publications, scholarships and grants into the "Ricardian" period. The patrons
of the Foundation communicate with like-minded people who share an interest in
the Wars of the Roses, and in particular King Richard III.
We are comprised of a body of volunteers who give unselfishly of our time
showcasing their specific and individual talents. The Foundation sponsors a
variety of academic events and publications, and provides grants for research
into the “Ricardian” period.
