Tutor description

Richard can be called an unpopular king. He made a couple of wrong decisions during his reign, but it was his usurpation on Henry V that caused a lot of angst, especially with Buckingham and the Woodvilles. Buckingham was key in Richard's usurpation but as Warwick the 'kingmaker' before him, he enacted a change of mind. It was after this change of mind that Buckingham hatched the idea to put Henry Tudor up as a candidate for the throne.
