Why is Richard III being deified? 

- Making, or treating as if, godlike or divine. What is all the furore around his burial? Why are people from all around the world travelling to Leicester?
Richard III is viewed by history as not only a cruel king but a ruinous one too and one who murdered his two nephews who were no more than children at the time, so why should he be deified. I come back again to the fact of his twisted spine. Something about this somehow gives his bones and him an almost myth like status
