Cornish connections to RichardIII, Henry VII, and RichardIII1955
One of Cornish's understated heritages is its languages and devotions to its mode of religion under its Church. Richard III felt the importance of being aligned to his less privileged subjects. Richard was had studied Latin in depth and probably knew that some of his subjects were no doubt being disadvantaged. Just as the Cornish people have their fiery disposition, so did Richard III. He fought bravely for his title at the Battle of Bosworth determined to hold onto his reign against Henry Tudor. The Cornish people were also under Richard III free from tin mine taxation which had been in place since Edward I. Henry Tudor began to tax the Cornish people which had been mining tin since Roman Times as they fought bravely for their rights much like their slain monarch. Their legacy and courage results in the memory of the Cornish Rugby team known as the Rebels
Another connection is that the title of Duke of Cornwall was bestowed upon the monarch's oldest son since 1421. RichardIII's only legitimate son with his Queen Anne, Edward of Middleham. Edward was granted the title of Duke of Cornwall, and had a spectacular coronation given by his father to celebrate. Sadly, Edward was sickly and passed away at age 10. Both his parents grieved very deeply over the loss of their only child.
One monarch who has a great deal of poking fun at Henry Tudor is Youtube RichardIII1955. His videos often wryly depict Henry Tudor as selfishly grasping, something I'm sure many Cornish residents would chortle over. He also appears to be too reliant on his advisors which gain him disfavor. If one is a bit tad Richardian, then the moving tribute videos to the hysterical and historical will brighten your day. Richard also is very kind and supportive to those who venture into these waters. His gentle, lovable nature supported my sonnets to the monarch whom I hope the Cornish residents will enjoy.

Thank you all, especially my beloved Gloucester.
