In 2012, archaeologists discovered Richard‘s bones under a Leicester parking lot. After his death in 1485, his burial place had been forgotten.

In case you didn’t know, Benedict is the king’s third cousin, 16 times removed!

    All Cumberbatch family are talented but no relation what so ever even by Wanda his mother to my family Nevil. As a titled British man I offered DNA but was ignored as my estates are in Europe where I seem to live most of the year now.I have a house in England too but as only forty three people really have deep connections with Richard I was shocked to see Cumberbatch as his family are no relation what so ever no matter what the news says. I have all the papers and rolls. The marriages from Geoffrey of Anjou down to me through out and no one can argue not even the Royal heralds. If Richard Burton was still here he would have been the one chosen.Fame as an actor seems to open doors locked to an Earl.
