Professor Kendall was an historian who specialized in the English Renaissance period. He's perhaps best known for his authoritative biography of King Richard III, published in 1955, which helped to rehabilitate the reputation of this much-maligned monarch.

Richard III has been enshrined as one of the must-read Monarchical biographies. Mr. Kendall's treatment has been satisfactory to me, and I must remark that the Shakespeare treatment , is a work I read about five times. Like Edward II, Richard suffers from his spectacular dethronement in the interests of the development of England as we know it. He could well, if he had managed the battle of Bosworth better, have set his mark on the Tudor period as well as Henry VII did.
