The former corpse and monarch is set to involve himself in the 21st Century by joining various social media.

The king was resurrected by royalist necromancers in 2012 but has maintained a low profile since his return to life.

Richard III was king of England from1483 until his death in the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485. His short reign was riddled by controversy, with many speculating he committed many atrocious acts including: arranging the murder of his brother Clarence, and imprisoning his nephews in the Tower of London.

Those who are loyal to the king continue to assure the public that representations of Richard III as a cunning killer are exaggerated and falsified. A member of the king's PR team said: 'Richie-as he likes to be called now- just wants to really get to know the people he rules…used to rule.'

'It's our hope that the people of Great Britain and the world will interact with Richie on social networks, such as: FacePage, Chirper, KwikPic, and Blogbee. If they do not respond to Buddy Requests we cannot promise they will survive the coming winter of discontent. The king was dead, long live the king.'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
