Statement from the living, collateral descendants of King Richard III
The Plantagenet Alliance does hereby most respectfully demand that the remains of King Richard
III, the last Plantagenet King of England and our mutual, collateral ancestor, be returned to the City of
York for ceremonial re-burial.
We believe that such an interment was the desire of King Richard in life and we have written
this statement so that his inferred wishes may be fully recognised.
King Richard III was the last King of the House of York and the last of the Plantagenet
dynasty which ruled England following the succession of King Henry II in 1154.
We believe that King Richard is deserving
of great recognition and respect and hereby agree to dutifully uphold his memory.
With due humility and affection, we are and will remain his Majesty’s representatives and voice.
