Note to self

Or else I'll forget:

There have been three King Richards of England. Two of the three were deposed by a Henry. Both Henrys engaged in a certain amount of propaganda and suppression of varying degrees.

Does the name Richard appear again as the name of a King's Son? Is this deliberate choice? Granted the heir is most often named for his father or his grandfather (and quite often it is the same name), but there is usually more than one son.
