DOUBLE CAB 4X4 OR 2014 CHEVY SIL VERADO CREW CAB 4X4 L EICESTER, England — A maligned monarch found under a parking lot was buried in pomp Thursday, as Britain embraced comeback King Richard III, a long- reviled ruler who is experiencing a remarkable posthumous renaissance. Royalty, religious leaders and actor Benedict Cumberbatch joined archaeologists, Richard’s distant relatives and curious Britons for a service in Leicester Cathedral that saw the king’s bones buried with dignity, 530 years after his violent death. “ Richard’s posthumous reputation has been less than glorious,” Gordon Campbell, the University of Leicester’s public orator, noted with understatement about a man whose name was long a byword for villainy. But now, Campbell said, he has “ the greatest following of all English monarchs” apart from Queen Elizabeth II. Twenty first- century Britain has enthusiastically embraced the story of the medieval king whose battle- scarred skeleton was found under a parking lot in Leicester in 2012. Thousands came to view his coffin ahead of Thursday’s service, which was televised live. In his sermon, Bishop of Leicester Tim Stevens said the discovery of the skeleton “ has broken open not just a car park, but a nation’s story.” Stevens said Richard was found just 40 metres from where he was being reburied — but his journey from ignominy to honour was evidence “ reputation does not have the last word, for Richard or for any of us.” The service was the culmination of a wave of Richard- mania that has been building since archaeologists looking for Richard dug up a skeleton with a distinctively curved spine. Scientific sleuthing — including radiocarbon dating, bone analysis and DNA tests — confirmed the remains belonged to the long- lost king, who died at the Battle of Bosworth, near Leicester, in 1485. The victor, Henry Tudor, went on to reign as King Henry VII and founded the Tudor dynasty. Richard was buried, without a coffin, in a church that was later demolished. For centuries his image was defined by William Shakespeare’s Richard III : a hunchbacked, power- hungry tyrant who murdered his two young nephews because they were rivals for the crown. Some historians argue Richard was a relatively enlightened monarch whose reign between 1483 and 1485 saw reforms including the introduction of the right to bail and the lifting of restrictions on books and printing presses. Many of those who this week came to Leicester, 160 kilometres north of London, were unabashed Richard fans, ecstatic he is finally getting his due. “ He suffered such indignities after death,” said May Doherty, who had flown from Northern Ireland to stand outside the cathedral. “ This is brilliant to see. It’s how a king should be buried.” Richard’s fans and foes alike agreed the service was a historic occasion. Elizabeth has ruled for 63 years, and most Britons have never seen a king buried. The service — not a funeral, organizers stressed, since he probably had a simple one in 1485 — borrowed from 15th- century rites, with Latin and plainsong amid the more modern hymns. There was star power, too, as Cumberbatch — who plays Richard III in the BBC’s Shakespearean TV series The Hollow Crown — read a poem by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy. Richard remains a contentious figure. The current queen — a distant relative, though not a descendant — did not attend the service. She sent her daughterin- law Sophie, Countess of Wessex, to represent the Royal Family. — The Associated Press Found under a parking lot, Richard III laid to rest By Jill Lawless RUI VIEIRA / THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Britain’s Sophie, Countess of Wessex, represented the Royal Family.
