"The skull was in good condition, although fragile, and was able to give us detailed information," bioarchaeologist Jo Appleby, who led the exhumation of the remains in 2012, said earlier this year.
Clues coaxed from the skeleton may shed "a new light" on the physical description of Richard III as a humpbacked man with a "withered arm," which was used to support history's evil image of him, Professor Lin Foxhall, head of the University of Leicester's School of Archaeology and Ancient History, said then.
One immediate discovery was that the skeleton does not have a "withered arm" as depicted by Shakespeare, researchers said.
While not humpbacked, Richard III did suffer from the "severe scoliosis" that appeared to start around the time of puberty, they said.
The king will finally get respect next year.
His remains will be reburied in Leicester Cathedral, close to the site of his original grave.
