LONDON—Researchers on Monday said the long-lost remains of King Richard III have been found and identified—after sitting under what is now a parking lot in the English Midlands for more than 500 years.
The findings appear to solve a centuries-old mystery involving one of England's most-storied rulers, who has remained in the public fascination through a Shakespeare play and Hollywood movies.
King Richard III was the last English king to die in battle. A painting of the King by an unknown artist from the 16th Century hangs at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
