One of the more infamous crimes which Richard III is accused of is the imprisonment and subsequent disappearance of his nephews,
“His claim is the true one, he is known for his prowess as a battle commander, and he is utterly without mercy.” Here George R.R. Martin refers to Stannis Baratheon, the self-proclaimed rightful king of the Iron Throne. Though, the same dialogue can be used to describe Richard III, who just like Stannis declared that he was the rightful heir to the throne. The most common link that most historians find between these two pieces of literature is between the characters of Tyrion Lannister and Richard III. However, I believe that George Martin has knowingly or unknowingly based Stannis’ character on Richard III. Both characters show that they are not afraid to take extreme measures in order to secure the throne. When considering the strong similarities

The actual Richard II and the Richard III of literature are two distinct people—at least they are today. When the histories that covered the War of the Roses, including the story of Richard III’s rise to power, were first made, the historical version was much closer to the version found in history. This is, partially, due to the fact that the histories coincided with the moment the Tudor family gained control, marking a new chapter in the history of the British monarchy, and it was at this point that the Tudor Myth became cemented in history.

Richard the Third was a power-hungry tyrant, willing to do whatever it took to become the most powerful man in the land. He lied, schemed, and ran down anyone who stumbled across his highway to fame and fortune. His exploits, though morally deplorable, were highly successful for him up until his fateful end. Many of his actions were taken straight from Niccolò Machiavelli’s The Prince, which is famous for its hard-hearted philosophies on achieving power and ruling. Richard followed Machiavelli’s advice in that he was ruthless and careful to cover his tracks, but he failed to heed one of his warnings: he made himself unpopular.
There is a clear pattern throughout history of propaganda, myths and contemporary sources clouding the true reality of events. Richard III is seen to be one of England 's most disputed kings; a monarch who brings with him a legend of negative connotations. There are seen to be many arguments as to whether or not the mischievous king was subject to be condemned by his 'black legend ' or fits the description issued by keen Richard III adversaries. These sceptics see Richard depicted under the 'black ' legend which in turn imply that he was the murderer of his own nephews in the tower, murderer of his wife, Anne and wrongfully deposed Edward VI among many more brutal monarchical actions. However, on the flipside the White Rose Richard society base his life around the ideologies that there is little evidence to suggest the his blackened reputation, that historical facts have been clouded by Tudor propaganda and superstition and that fundamentally that Richard 's methods were no more or less brutal than his contemporaries.

Shakespeare 's adaptation of Richard in his plays "Richard III" and "Edward VI: Part III" illustrates him as a deformed Machiavellian brother, who was summoned

Public sentiment over such things as the scandal surrounding the princes did have an effect over the rule of Richard, but there are many other underlying aspects that could have extended Richards rule, and changed the way history looks back on him.
