ALIVE AND WELL IN CANADA - THE DNA OF RICHARD III


 

In 2003, in a quest to help identify possible remains of Margaret of York, Duchess of Burgundy, John Ashdown-Hill began a search for a living individual who carries Margaret's mitochondrial DNA - and that of her brothers, King Edward IV and King Richard III.

A living descendant of Margaret and Richard's eldest sister, Anne of York, Duchess of Exeter, was finally located in Canada, whose DNA is currently being used in an attempt to identify to remains found in Leicester as those of Richard III.

An attempt is also under way to identify the mtDNA sequence of the 'Princes in the Tower'.
