Did Richard III really kill the young princes, as is commonly believed, or was the murderer someone else entirely? Carefully examining every shred of contemporary evidence as well as the dozens of modern accounts, Weir reconstructs the entire chain of events leading to the double murder to arrive at a conclusion Sherlock Holmes himself could not dispute.… (mehr)

    Royal Blood: King Richard III and the Mystery of the Princes von Bertram Fields (Scotland)
    Scotland: Fields work is largely a discertation against Weir's book. I will leave it up to the readers on who interprets history more accurately.

I hesitated between a 3 or 4 star rating on this book and settled with the three. Like others, I felt that in this case that the author went into it with the foregone conclusion that the Princes were killed by their Uncle (Richard III). Although the book was written in 1992, there have been some recent discoveries to challenge that claim and as far as I know no further updates to the book have been made. It was an easy read though and interesting but it was heavily written about why the author feels it was King Richard III and less on the discovery of the bones and forensics involved in their identification which is what I was interested in.

For years, the reading public learned from Shakespeare's Richard III about the murder of 2 young princes. Ms Weir goes on a search for other sources to see what they had to say about what happened to the 2 boys. Her analysis of the documents available avoids reading between the lines. She begins with the murder of Henry VI & ends with Henry VII who discovers the truth but buries it to avoid trouble. Fortunately, she is able to compare the documents & evidence which confirms Richard III conspired to kill the 2 princes & attempted to bury the truth. In 1674, workmen who were repairing the tower discovered the 2 bodies in a chest deep in a hole. Even to this day, the author explains, there are some questions but leaves no doubts that one of the most mysterious disappearance of the 2 princes is indeed an interesting topic. ( )

Like all of Alison Weir's works, this is a historical novel pretending to be history.

And it would be nice if she hadn't made up her facts. Did Richard III arrange for the murder of the Princes in the Tower? Probably. That doesn't justify the rest of this. A good historian looks at the facts to reach a conclusion, rather than deciding what she wants and then rewriting the facts.

It's perhaps worth noting the range of ratings her books receive. That's pretty rare for genuine historians.

Usually I write longer reviews, but there isn't anything in the way of facts to review. So what is left to say? You may like Weir's style of fiction. I don't. There isn't much to say beyond that. ( )

Weir is at her best in her History titles. Really, really detailed and very compelling. Revisionists are delusional :) ( )

Modern writers on the subject of the Princes in the Tower have tended to fall into two categories: those who believe Richard III guilty of the murder of the Princes but are afraid to commit themselves to any confident conclusions, and those who would like to see Richard more or less canonised.
