Because lots of people seemed to still have interesting things to say when the other thread got full up. And also because I think I want to have a threesome with Lord Stanley and Margaret Beaufort.

Well, as a biologist, I feel that it's me who should be in charge of the cloning. wink

<thinks: He won't fancy her in a labcoat.>

Some men like girls in labcoats and geeky lab glasses, at least I like to believe they do.

If he could be cloned then maybe we could all have one!

are we talking about the real RIII, or Aneurin?!

"are we talking about the real RIII, or Aneurin?!"


Tiredemma Mon 02-Sep-13 13:42:16

just thought I might brighten the day with this

Gracelo Mon 02-Sep-13 13:47:34

Which one would you prefer *Tiredemma"? Easier with Aneurin, his DNA will be in a better shape.

I can see a business idea developing.

Tiredemma Mon 02-Sep-13 13:50:32

I prefer Aneurin in all honesty. But he must be dressed as R iii at all times. Im afraid that would be a dealbreaker for me.

Gracelo Mon 02-Sep-13 14:12:58

I'm sure you can dress him up any way you like.

TunipTheUnconquerable Mon 02-Sep-13 15:10:56

We could use Aneurin to fill in any gaps in the real Richard, like the way on Jurassic Park they used tree frog to fill in gaps in dinosaur.
I am sure they are practically identical anyway.

LadyEnglefield Mon 02-Sep-13 18:14:18

I was going to suggest one of each but I quite like Tunip's idea o mixed DNA.

Gracelo Mon 02-Sep-13 19:27:24

Tunip's idea is brilliant. I get the lab ready. Who is getting the DNA samples?

TunipTheUnconquerable Tue 03-Sep-13 08:39:12

We'll give it some thought smile

Tiredemma Tue 03-Sep-13 08:41:32

keep me in the loop.

Not so sure I could engage in any act with the 'original' Riii now.......

<hunts down A Barnard)

Roundworm is easily treatable these days.

sunshinenanny Wed 04-Sep-13 14:58:38

Roundworm would be off-putting but maybe that could be sorted out in the cloning mix?

As for A. Barnard maybe we could brainwash the clones into thinking they really were Richard 111

No now I'm Just being sillygrin

TunipTheUnconquerable Wed 04-Sep-13 16:35:08

Oh, they all had parasites in those days. You just have to deal with it. Comes with the territory of fancying historical personages.

When I saw the photo of Woodville, Beaufort and Neville at the bottom of the article I thought the caption was going to say: 'May also have had intestinal parasites.'

Away from aneurin...

I've just been looking up websites to try to find out who Elizabeth Elizabeth Woodvillewww descendants all were and I seem to have found several mentions of Elizabeth of York being married to someone named thomas lumley and having a child named Sybil in 1485 before she had Arthur? Anyone able to help my confusion?

I think...

Thomas lumley was married to a different Elizabeth, edward's daughter by a mistress also called Elizabeth.
