Regular price £2.50

Part of our exclusive Royalty range featuring iconic portraits of British Royalty.

This magnetic bookmark features 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.

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
