DNA taken from a man from North London has helped to prove that a skeleton found underneath a Leicestershire car park belonged to the Plantagenet king Richard III.
Michael Ibsen is an ancestor of the king's sister Anne so scientists were able to compare his DNA with the skeleton's. As the two samples turned out to be similar, it proved that the remains did belong to the king.
