Richard III Characters

Lord Mayor of London is one of the chief officials of the country, whose recognition of Richard as King is key for his coup to succeed. 

He is sent for so that Buckingham and Richard can justify Hastings’s execution to him, which they easily do. He does not realize that he is being co-opted into becoming a part of Richard’s plot, but is slowly convinced to come with his aldermen and ask Richard to take the throne. Whether he does so out of genuine conviction, out of opportunism at seeing which way the wind is turning, or out of fear, is unknown.
