Who was Richard III? Did he murder his nephews?

Richard III reigned from 1483 to 1485

He was from the House of York, and was the last king of the Plantagenet dynasty. Richard ruled for just two years until he died in 1485. He is often thought to have been an evil monarch who only became king because he locked his nephews, Edward V and Richard, Duke of York, in the Tower of London.

Listen to a song about Richard. Why is he angry?
