King Richard III Glasses Case

Regular price £10.00

Designed exclusively for the National Portrait Gallery. This glasses case, with included lens cloth, takes inspiration from the portrait of King Richard III by Unknown artist, late 16th century. 

Richard III was the last Yorkist king of England. He was a staunch supporter of his elder brother Edward IV against the Lancastrians. However, after Edward's death he steadily assumed power during the minority of Edward V, and was crowned king in his place. He was famously depicted by Shakespeare as 'Crookback' and since the discovery of his body we know that he had scoliosis. He ruled from 1483 until his death two years later, killed by the Lancastrian army of Henry Tudor (later Henry VII) at the Battle of Bosworth Field.

More about this portrait: oil on panel, late 16th century.

This portrait, in which he appears to be placing a ring on the little finger of his right hand, has been seen by some as evidence of his cruel nature and by others as evidence of his humanity.
