To return King Richard III for ceremonial burial in York

    1. Petition by

      King Richard Campaign

We most respectfully demand that the remains of King Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England, be returned to the City of York for formal, ceremonial re-burial.

We believe that such an interment was the desire of King Richard in life and that his wishes should be fully recognised and upheld.

      Because it would be very important to RICHARD III!

      He wasn't buried in that Leicestershire 'car park', he was dumped there as a defeated King. The only just and right thing to do now is to take him 'home'... for the ceremonial burial needed to put him to rest.

      This is very important ! Richard III had no connection of love of Leicester - he adored the city of York and it is only right that he return so that he can rest peacefully. xoxo
