King Richard's Facial Reconstruction - a Handsome Lad

The reconstruction of the face of King Richard III has taken place and it's fascinating!

For those who haven't been following the story, a skeleton found buried under a car park in Leicester has been proven to be that of the King.  DNA and a Canadian descendant of Richard's sister were the keys to unravelling the mystery.

And now the facial reconstruction based only on the skull, has confirmed that an earlier painting of the King was indeed based on real life and not imagination.
