El pasado año, los restos mortales de Ricardo III, quien gobernó de 1452 a 1485, fueron encontrados en Leicester, en el centro de Inglaterra.

Ahora los expertos universitarios aseguran por estudios practicados en los restos del esqueleto de Ricardo III que éste padecía de una infección intestinal a causa de los parásitos.
