The discovery of Richard III once agani reminds the British public that the Plantagenets were the true Royal family of England, NOT the Windsors, a gang of Germans dumped upon the British in the 17th Century. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33130922
Isn't it time to see the Windsors kicked out and the Plantagenets restored?
who alive today would be on the thrown is the Plantagenet line was still in?
or is that impossible to answer?
There is a living descendant of Richard III - it washis DNA they used to confirm the skeleton's ID. His name's Michael Ibsen:
"The son of a descendant of Richard III's eldest sister was on site as what is believed to be the first ever search for the lost grave of an anointed King of England began in a city centre car park.
Canadian-born Michael Ibsen watched as archaeological experts from the University of Leicester used ground penetrating radar equipment to find the best spots to begin their search today at the car park off Greyfriars in Leicester.
His mother Joy Ibsen, who died four years ago aged 82, was a direct descendant of the King's eldest sister Anne of York.
Born in the UK, the journalist, who is the 16th generation niece of Richard III, emigrated to Canada in her 20s.
Today Mr Ibsen, a furniture maker living in London, said his mother would have been thrilled by the project.
The 55-year-old, who was born in Canada, said: "The family were entertained when she got the call several years ago from a historian claiming she was a descendant. We thought it was more of a story than anything else but as time went by it became more serious and a DNA connection to Richard's eldest sister Anne of York was found."
