"... Richard III has been portrayed by some historians and artists — including a certain bard from Avon — as being 'crook-backed' and 'hump-backed' and walking with a limp. Some experts theorized that his condition might have made physical exercise difficult.

"The new scans, however, are evidence that the monarch was the victim of Tudor propaganda that was later perpetuated by Shakespeare. At the time of Richard III's reign (1483-1485), physical deformity was considered to be a sign of an evil nature. The spin doctors of his day likely played up the king's mild mis-alignment to encourage a villainous image."

Of course, a Tudor was on the throne when Shakespeare was penning his plays.
