Richard III wasn't really a hunchback but exaggerated by Shakespeare
History suggests that Richard III was the most celebrated hunchback but it is found that his disfigurement was forcefully misrepresented by Shakespeare.
Researchers suggest that his skeleton scans revealed, he just had a slight deformation that would have scarcely influenced his appearance or ability on the field of fight. Rather, a 3D reproduction of his spine demonstrates 65 to 85 degrees of 'scoliosis', or sideways twisting of his spine to the right. The condition, which would have created in his initial teenagers, implies he was a long way from being a hunchback.
Experts say that the infamous portrayal by Shakespeare of a 'hunchback amphibian', a Machiavellian villain who had a deformed back, a limp and shriveled arm, was probably an endeavour to darken his notoriety.
It is true that one of his shoulder was somewhat higher than the other along with a short torso in comparison with his arms and legs, there is no confirmation he strolled with a limp.
His spine which had a well balanced curve could have been hidden by a great tailor and armour which was custom built for him.
