Thomas More - a public servant who from 1518 served on Henry VIII's Privy Council and later became Lord Chancellor - wrote his History of King Richard III between around 1513 and 1518.

More's account - which dramatised conflicts, provided descriptions of both body and mind, and looked for causes as well as recording facts - was popular and was incorporated into the work of other chroniclers, including Holinshed and Stow, as well as influencing dramatists such as Shakespeare.

The work survives in English and Latin versions, both unfinished, with some variation in detail between the two. More borrows freely from other Tudor accounts of Richard's reign, such as those by John Rous and Polydore Vergil, and adds original detail from direct testimony.
