It features a scene from Richard III by William Shakespeare, from Act IV, Scene II, when the king says: “When last I was at Exeter, the mayor in courtesy show’d me the castle, and call’d it Rougemont: at which name I started, because a bard of Ireland told me once I should not live long after I saw Richmond.” page 3
