Richard was buried hastily at the time. He remained buried for 427 years, and his resting place was lost. Then, in 2012, during an archeological dig in a car park in the city of Leicester, his remains were found.
Today, 3 years later, and 430 years after his death, his remains have been passed into the care of Leicester Cathedral, where he will be reburied in Thursday. His casket was taken through the city on a gun carriage. The streets were lined with hundreds of people.
Today is very strange. The past and modern days are meeting. Despite the time that has passed, it remains that this man was once the king. the moment has been very solemn, and even quite moving.
King Richard III, 1452 - 1485.

It is normal to label your defeated enemy as a villain. This is what the Tudors did to Richard 3. It takes a long time but usually the winning side forgives. Napoleon ashes were move to Paris To Les Invslides. King Charles 1, and Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary and even Cromwell are buried in Westminster Abbey.
I wonder if Hitler remains are ever found will he be bury someday..

I have done some research. It appears Hiller body was burnt several times and his ashes thrown in a river. It might still be possible to retrieve the ashes but I do not think anyone would want to at the moment. Hitler's parents grave has been moved as some Nazi supporters were visiting it. There are also some graves of German leaders in Munich. Those who were not war criminals had head stones.
So it is possible to rebury a German hero. But I doubt it will take place this century.
