Welcome to the official website of Richard III’s Loyal Supporters!
In the News!
Many of you will be aware that two performances of Shakespeare's Richard III are to be allowed just metres away from King Richard's earthly remains in Leicester Cathedral this July. We are wholeheartedly opposed to this venture and find it extremely disrespectful. Please read our official statement regarding this issue here.
Also please consider Signing the Petition which asks the Dean of Leicester Cathedral to put a stop to this planned sacrilage.
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-living human being; ensuring that this respect is extended beyond the confines of our organisation. 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.
