Richard III Gets No Respect

So Richard III was not given a proper burial?

Well, what were the Tudors to do..he was a disgraced king...

Let's face it...medieval England was not a genteel place. If someone defeated you in battle, you could expect disgrace, dishonor, and probably death. So it's no surprise the Tudors discarded Richard IIIs body in a shallow, hastily dug grave with little or no ceremony. CNNs article sheds more light on Richard III as British scientists continue to gather clues from his rediscovered corpse.
