Description

This portrait of King Richard III was created in the 16th century, long after his reign, between 1483 and 1485. His grand status is accentuated by his clothing and jewelry. The ring he wears, on the third finger of his left hand, symbolizes love and commitment. In the portrait, he is shown playing with the ring, which some researchers believe symbolizes his eagerness to remarry after the death of his wife Anne, in March of 1485.
