Welcome to the website of THE SOCIETY OF FRIENDS OF KING RICHARD III

York was Richard's City After all, it had known him for a long time, from his early days when his parents were its Duke and Duchess, to when he lodged with Warwick for knight training, through to his twelve years office as Lord
of the North. And finally, as king. The poignant entry of his death in the York City Records sums up the city's love, and loss, of their beloved patron. Without doubt, Richard was bred, if not born, a Yorkshireman. That is why the society was formed in 1978, to promote Richard in the North, especially York, something no other Ricardian Society had ever attempted.
