    Middleham (Home to King Richard III)

    Allegorical painting of love attributed to Hans Memling, c.1485–90 via Met Museum

    "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

    From a set of playing cards, ca. 1470–1485, South Netherlandish -- The Cloisters set of fifty-two cards constitutes the only known complete deck of illuminated ordinary playing cards from the 15th century. There are four suits, each consisting of a king, a queen, a knave, and ten pip cards. The suit symbols, based on equipment associated with the hunt, are hunting horns, dog collars, hound tethers, and game nooses. The figures appear to be based on Franco-Flemish models.
