Title

The Tragicall Historie of the Life and Reigne of Richard the Third [sic]

Description

Sir Thomas More (1478-1535) was an English statesman, author, social philosopher, and Lord Chancellor. He was executed by Henry VIII for his opposition to the King's schism with the Catholic Church. Shakespeare was very familiar with More’s History of Richard III, which included references to Greek and Roman authors who examined the events leading to civil wars. Both men offered an unfavorable account of Richard III’s reign due to their allegiance to the Tudor family and its struggle to wrest the throne from the monarch.
