An army of 100, some dressed in medieval garb, marched on the city of York recently in support of their king, Richard III. Led by Vanessa Roe, the king's 16th great niece, the march was a "moral crusade" to bring Richard's body back to Yorkshire where, according to Roe, he washed to be buried. (photo and video)
"He loved York, he loved Yorkshire, he wanted to be buried here... We're trying to fulfill his wishes," said Roe. In addition to the march and a petition, 15 Plantagenet relatives have filled papers to stop the burial in Leicester, where the remains were found.
