Richard III’s Face

image

A facial reconstruction based on the skull of Richard III has revealed how the English king may have looked.
The unveiling of the reconstruction was attended by Michael Ibsen, Richard’s 17th generation nephew, who also provided DNA for tests on the bones.
The king’s skeleton was found under a car park in Leicester during an archaeological dig.
The reconstructed face has a slightly arched nose and prominent chin, similar to features shown in portraits of Richard III painted after his death.
