GUEST,Ellen Vannin BS: Richard III (119* d) RE: BS: Richard I I I 24 Mar 15


At the time of Richard III there were two methods of getting the crown - inherit it or win it by getting rid of the previous incumbent. We later added another method - get offered the crown by parliament if the current incumbent wasn't doing his job to parliament's satisfaction. I have heard that there were 43 nearer relatives who were passed over when George I was offered the throne, but parliament felt he would be the best (ie most compliant) candidate.
