Well, there's We Speak No Treason by Rosemary Hawley Jarman. It starts out in the reign of IV then comes to center on Richard III. It's good historical fiction that I read long ago.

The only one I know of with a glorious Richard III reign is the one with a sherlock holmes-esque figure who is accompanied by a forensic wizard, and I am totally blocking on the author and the name of the series, but I know that they're excellent.
