Shakespeare & Richard lll

Richard lll and the Battle of Bosworth

I have just been reading a suggestion that Shakespeare`s play about Richard lll may have been a more current political satire directed against the Cecils. The article went into some depth about the misdirections involved in the play and may or may not be true of course. Mentioned in the article was the turncoat action of the Stanley`s, so I thought my readers might enjoy an excerpt from the prologue of my novel about a much later occurrence, the Lincolnshire Uprising.
