About this product
- DescriptionRichard of England is the story of Prince Richard, Duke of York who returned to England to claim his rightful inheritance, the throne of England. This was in 1497, some 14 years after, according to legend, he was supposed to have been murdered as one of the Princes in the Tower by his wicked uncle King Richard III. But this was just a myth created by the Tudor dynasty. The recent discovery of King Richard III's body in a Leicester car park raises again the complex issues of this fascinating part of English history. Diana Kleyn traces the story of young Richard, Duke of York from childhood, through the courts of Europe to his attempts at invasion of England. The story contains drama, love and intrigue and ends in tragedy as befits a real true life story. But more than a story Diana Kleyn's book contains important references and translations which historians will find extremely important. These unravel the true story of events of that period which, until w, have t been revealed. Quite simply she is rewriting a fascinating part of English history.
- Author BiographyDiana Kleyn inherited her love of history, and of the fifteenth century in particular, from her father, Thomas Harding-Newman, who was a genealogist and historian. She spent the last two years of her education abroad, staying with families in Germany, France, Switzerland and Italy in order to learn the languages. On the outbreak of World War II, she returned to England to work first in Naval Intelligence, and then in Military Intelligence. It was here she met her Dutch-born husband, who was also working in Military Intelligence. After the war her husband became a naturalised Englishman and after finishing work they retired down in Dorset, England. After her husband's death, she dedicated her time to the story of Richard, Duke of York, who had gone down in history as 'Perkin Warbeck'. She was a long time member of the Richard III Society and enjoyed lecturing on this period of history, and then researching and writing the book 'Richard of England' originally published in 1990. Diana Kleyn died in 1996. Since then her son, Peter, has followed up on the story and having found her original manuscripts and research has instigated this new version in 2013.
