Established for over eighty years, the Richard III Society operates on several but not mutually exclusive levels. The Society exists not only to promote a re-assessment of King Richard’s character but also to encourage a fellowship between like-minded people and to commemorate the history of the last Plantagenets. This is not always an easy balance to maintain but this approach has enabled the Society to attract many thousands of members world-wide which in turn provides a platform for the Society to take its case to the academic community. Over the past half-century the Society has established an academic programme, vibrant membership and memorable commemorative achievements which were recognised as early as 1989 by the accolade of royal patronage in the person of the present Prince Richard, HRH the Duke of Gloucester.
