University of Leicester scientists have made a gruesome discovery beneath a parking lot within the city’s boundaries.
Researches unearthed the skeletal remains last year, but tests now indicate that they belong “beyond reasonable doubt” to the monarch, who died at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485, humiliated and hated, overthrown and defeated by the army of Henry Tudor — who subsequently ruled as King Henry VII.
The whereabouts of King Richard’s remains has been a 500-year mystery, the AP reports.
