    Hi Wanda. I'm curious why you think so.

    Well, mostly because of the (very few) contemporary paintings/drawings that exist of Richard: he was not overly tall, but of "goodly proportions"; he actually was considered very handsome because of his strong jaw and thick dark hair, and the expression on his face is quite similar to the famous portrait of him. Also, this painting seems to match contemporary descriptions of Richard and Anne. She was consumptive; therefore very delicate (again, according to contemporary descriptions) and both, in their own ways, were gentle souls. Which must have been extra difficult for them, considering the brutal times they lived in. If I could go anywhere in a time machine, you would be sure I would go to the court of the Yorkist kings. (I would dearly have liked to see that famous beauty, Elizabeth Woodville, with her blue-green eyes and "silver gilt" hair. She must have had quite the celestial beauty. And all their children, especially the daughters, were considered lovely as well. This family, the last of the Plantagenets, were known at the time for their good looks).
