On January 30th 1835, Richard Lawrence attempted to assassinate Andrew Jackson. He fired two pistols, both of which misfired.
Lawrence claimed that Jackson had stopped him from becoming King of England, and was declared insane.
Richard III is probably the most controversial king in English history, but in this quiz I have concentrated on some of the facts about Richard's life rather than on the many different theories about him.
