King Richard III to be burried in Leicester Cathedral

King Richard III
Officials have finally decided on the re interment details for the remains of the 15th-century English ruler King Richard III.

His remains will be laid to rest on Thursday, March 26, 2015, in Leicester Cathedral during one of three services to honor the English king.

The king's remains, which were found under a parking lot in Leicester, England, in 2012, will be placed in a tomb made of Swaledale fossil stone and black Kilkenny marble crafted by Michael Ibsen, a descendant of King Richard III's sister Anne of York.
