Richard III was defeated and slain in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, which has traditionally marked the terminus of the Mediæval period for England. There are currently plans to inter him in Leicester near where he died, but the Plantagenet Alliance is seeking to stop that and inter him in York, which is a city which Richard III always had a close connection with as he was of the House of York. It appears that a legal battle may be forthcoming over where he shall be buried. The Yorkists are adamant that Richard would want to be interred in northern England. But others want him buried near where his body was found.
