Favourite character in the calendar - Richard III

Hello! Tina the Shakespearean minion here.

I'm interrupting the blog with my own entry about the 2013 calendar... I'm very excited because it's including one of my favourite characters who doesn't get much good press.

Richard III

Okay, so he's a bit evil, but the illustration has a pile of skulls. You can't get much better than that.

I did my postgraduate disseration on the textual differences in versions of the Richard III and think there's a good case that the text was altered to frame him. Maybe. Sort of. 

So now I'll leave the obligatory  link to pre-order the calendar, at a special price only until the end of September.
