Welcome to the website of the Richard III and Yorkist History Trust

The Richard III and Yorkist History Trust was formally constituted in October 1985 in order to ‘further education, learning, and research related to the history of late medieval England (and in particular the life and reign of King Richard III) and to disseminate the results of such education, learning and research’.

Our motto, ‘Quam meritorium sit libros novos scribere et veteres renovare‘, encapsulates the aims and values of the Trust, and may be translated as ‘How meritorious it is to write new books and renew old ones’.

The Trust was recognised by the Charity Commissioners and registered as charity number 327005 in February 1986.

Our website is currently undergoing a redesign and further information will be available soon.
