Abstract
Ascending to the throne of Richard III in the treatment of the Second Continuation of the Croyland Chronicle is presented in a perverted historical outlook. The author consciously ignored severe and sometimes unlawful activities of Woodvilles directed on the removal from the power of the Duke of Gloucester. Thereby the Croyland Anonym acted as one of the first of the Tudor’s apologists. Numerous chronological and factual inaccuracies in the text of the source leave little doubt that the creator of the narrative did not stay in London in April-June of 1483 and composed the chronicle relying on the rumors that have been circulating outside the capital.
