Historical Examples of richard
This Richard of Shakespeare is so far, I submit, almost incomprehensible.
And from this scene to the end of the play Shakespeare enlists all our sympathy for Richard.
Like Hamlet, too, this Richard is quick to suspect even his friends' loyalty.
In the next scene Richard meets his foes, and at first plays the king.
At least to this extent, then, Shakespeare used Marlowe in depicting Richard's character.
masc. proper name, Middle English Rycharde, from Old French Richard, from Old High German Ricohard "strong in rule," from Proto-Germanic *rik- "ruler" (see rich) + *harthu "hard," from PIE *kar-o- (see hard). "One of the most popular names introduced by the Normans. Usually Latinized as Ricardus, the common form was Ricard, whence the pet form Rick, etc." ["Dictionary of English Surnames"]
