Should the remains of King Richard III be interred at Leicester or York?

It seems that the row over where the recently discovered remains of King Richard III of England should be re-interred, is escalating. As the last king of the House of York, some feel he should be returned to Yorkshire and be interred at York Cathedral. Others say that he should remain where he fell 500 years ago... show more It seems that the row over where the recently discovered remains of King Richard III of England should be re-interred, is escalating. As the last king of the House of York, some feel he should be returned to Yorkshire and be interred at York Cathedral. Others say that he should remain where he fell 500 years ago at the Battle of Bosworth, and be re-interred at Leicester Cathedral. It is common nowadays for the body of a soldier to be returned to his loved ones and his native land, but that was not the case in the time of King Richard III, and, despite having living descendants, he does not actually have loved ones who personally remember him. Is it possibly the case that both Leicester and York are just trying to capitalize on his remains? After all, Richard III's tomb is sure to become a huge tourist attraction wherever it is. So who is correct and where would you re-inter him?
