Welcome to the official website of Richard III’s Loyal Supporters!
As we look forward to the holiday season, we have created a special Advent Calendar for all to enjoy. Open a door each day to reveal something new to explore! You may access the calendar by clicking here.
In the News!
As you may already be aware, Mira Ltd. had submitted plans to develop an autonomous vehicle test track on part of the registered site of Bosworth Battlefield. As a society we are opposed to this development for a number of reasons. Apart from the fact that the land witnessed the death of nobles and common soldiers alike, including our beloved Richard III, and therefore should be respected, it also destroys a part of English heritage, and the potential for future archaeological investigations. It also sets a poor precedent and risks the future of other important sites throughout the country.
Please take a look at the original society press release HERE.
Unfortunately, despite our best efforts alongside those of other societies including the Battlefield Trust, the proposed plan was approved. It has been deemed difficult to find any way of appealing this decision and would be cost prohibitive against a multi-million pound company, however if we find a way to further show our continued opposition to these plans we will indeed do so and we will inform our members of any such action.
Please feel free to still sign the PETITION set up by our Executive Committee member Dianne Penn if you are yet to do so!!!

We hope that this site will be valuable to both members and non-members as we continually add information in regards to our society’s activities and events, as well as highlighting details of the life of the great Duke and King, Richard III himself.
As we grow as a society, we hope to become an invaluable resource for those wishing to involve themselves in research regarding His Grace, adopt historical sites that are forever connected to him and especially to show our loyalty and respect to him as a once-
Not only do we hope to change the circumstances surrounding the current ‘resting’ place of King Richard and how his presence and memory is being exploited for others’ monetary gain and notoriety, we will continue to correct many of the misconceptions concerning Richard’s life and persona, and encourage further research to hopefully uncover details yet to be discovered. Lastly, but certainly not least, we would also like to acknowledge the loyal supporters of Richard’s day, who stood by his side, for better and for worse, and find ways to acknowledge their sacrifice and honour.
