King Richard III, Duke of Gloucester, Lord of the North.
He spent several years of his childhood, and most of his adult life in Yorkshire, forging many strong connections all over the county, and the north of England. He built up large estates and owned a number of castles in the north, choosing to spend his marital years, and raise his son Edward, at Middleham Castle. As King, he invested the boy at York Minster, and honoured the Cathedral Chapter with lavish gifts. He minted his coinage in York, and established his naval fleet at Scarborough.
Throughout Yorkshire he was loved and respected. He is loved and respected still.
