Richard III A good overview of the reign of Richard III from Britannia.com.  Information about the much debated and discussed King. Further links also available.
Richard III society The homepage of the Richard III society.  Excellent source of information although keep in mind the purpose of the society - that history has misjudged King Richard (e.g. they think he did not murder the Princes).
The Yorkists From the Queen's website, an official summary together with interesting images, of the Yorkists Kings of England - Edward IV, Edward V and Richard III.  An ideal place to start further research.

The Wars of the Roses For background information and further detail, a really good site to examine the wars that tore England apart.  Some magnificent family trees and in depth analysis
Path of the Crown Excellent diagram clearly depicting the path of the crown through the Wars of the Roses.  Further sections of this site will also prove useful for research.

Were the Princes in the Tower murdered? From the Richard III society American branch an extensive analysis of the deaths of the two Princes.  
Princes in the Tower Part of the Richard III society pages focusing on what they believed happened to Richard III's two nephews.  Detailed and text heavy analysis.
