It is the firm belief of The Shakespeare Code that William Shakespeare’s play, Richard III, is NOT a piece of Tudor propaganda….
Quite the opposite….
It is, in reality, a coded attack on the recently murdered Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester…..
…… secret lover of Queen Elizabeth I.
He had murdered his young wife Amy Robsart in order to make himself available to the Queen…..
He had used poison to eliminate his rivals, love potions to seduce and women, and practised the darkest of arts under a cloak of piety.
Never having uttered a prayer in his life, he was the self-style leader of the Puritan movement in England.
Catholics, who all hated him, compared him to Richard III…
Leicester was known as ‘The Bear’……
…..was known as ‘The Boar’.
At one point, the print compositor of an early edition of the play mixed the two nicknames up….
Elizabeth’s henchmen were so horrified by Shakespeare’s play they produced their own version – which is wildly pro-Elizabeth – and which was performed by the State funded, sycophantic Queen’s Men.
Brothers and Sisters of The Code are invited to examine the evidence for the theory in a seven part series: ‘Richard III Decoded’.
