Scientists confirmed that remains unearthed under a parking lot in the city of Leicester (LESS'-ter) in 2012 were those of England's King Richard The Third, who was killed in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth Field. DNA from the skeleton matched a sample taken from Canadian Michael Ibsen, whose family is a direct descendant of Richard's eldest sister, Anne of York. The 17th-generation nephew of the controversial king said he was still trying to process his role in solving a historical mystery. (Historians had spent centuries seeking details of Richard's death and looking for his final resting place.)
