Imagine a man so vile in his thoughts and actions that everything withers around him. Then imagine that man as your ruler. While the women of the court valiantly struggle to depose him, the toxic Richard III reduces his once prosperous country to ashes. Just as utter collapse seem inevitable; a bright, young leader named Richmond challenges the old order of misrule by bringing hope to the land.
