Michele Morrical

The only child and heir of King Richard III died on April 9, 1484 at the age of 10 years old. The cause of his death is unknown. Some accounts say that he was taken sick and died very quickly, as if from the flu or plague, but other sources say that he was always a sickly child with a delicate constitution.

About The Author

My journey into Tudor history began about 10 years ago with the TV show “The Tudors” from Showtime. As I watched the show, I wondered how much of it was really true because the storylines were more dramatic and shocking than any soap opera I had ever seen. I picked up Margaret George’s autobiography of Henry VIII and I was hooked. I’ve since read over 100 books on the Tudor period and I’m currently writing my own book about the Wars of the Roses.
