The Yorkshire Branch of the Richard III Society claim, naturally, that Yorkshire was his favourite county of all. And that it was in Yorkshire that he was happiest, where he and his wife, Anne Neville, daughter of Warwick the Kingmaker made their first - and favourite - home, at Middleham Castle .
It was also in Yorkshire that that their only son, Edward was born in 1473, and spent most of his tragically short life. Debate is already underway as to whether the last Yorkist monarch should be brought 'home' - with some calling for the burial place to be York Minster.
The last English King to die in battle - he lived for 12 years in the North of England.Some historians say that although entitled to be buried at Westmister Abbey alongside other Kings and Queens of England, he had announced his intention to be buried at York.
Descendants of King Richard III have demanded that his remains are reburied in York.
The remains of Richard III are likely to stay in Leicester according to Ladbrokes.
More than 1,000 people have signed an official petition to have Richard of York's remains brought back to Yorkshire.
