King Richard III at Middleham Castle

Middleham (Home to King Richard III)

"This King Richard was praiseworthy for his building, as at Westminster, Warwick, York, and Middleham, and many other places, which can be viewed. He founded a noble chantry in the Cathedral of York, and another at Middleham. He endowed the Queen's College at Cambridge with 500 marks annual rent. The money which was offered him by the peoples of London, Gloucester, and Worcester he declined with thanks, affirming that he would rather have their love than their treasure". - John Rous, 1486
