The Tragedy of Richard the Third
William Shakespeare

A historical play, believed to have been written circa 1593, and which was entered into the Register of the Stationers' Company on 20 October 1597. The play depicts the Machiavellian rise to power and subsequent short reign of King Richard III of England. The historical inaccuracies in the play can be attributed partly to Shakespeare's sources, such as Holinshed's Chronicles, and partly to artistic licence.
