Talk about youngest child syndrome. Richard, the Yorkist Duke of Gloucester, sure isn’t keen on his brother King Edward IV’s being on the throne. The idea of his other brother George in power doesn’t sound so great either. No, Richard wants the crown for himself, and he’ll stop at nothing to claim it. Highly calculating and manipulative, Richard plays his brothers against each other, seduces and tosses noblewomen, and executes anyone he thinks may be in his way. In his relentless pursuit to gain - and retain - the monarchy, his lust for power blinds him from morality, leaving no one - man, woman, or child - unscathed. Written centuries before Scandal or House of Cards, Richard III is the quintessential tale of a political antihero who will do anything to get his way.
