Who'd have believed it?

I posted a link on Facebook to my speculative little piece on the 'Hastings plot' (see Ricardian Topics page) and the reach on Facebook is already well over 10,000! Plus it's being reproduced in blogs and newsletters. Such has been the interest that I've edited it a little to make things a bit clearer to the non-specialist reader.

What I would really LOVE is for anyone interested in this to PLEASE read my little book Richard Duke of Gloucester as Lord Protector and High Constable of England (available here and from the Richard III Society) (and as an eBook) because this explains Richard's legitimate powers within the government at the time of the Hastings incident. Context is everything, so it's important to consider who in this scenario was acting legally and who illegally!
