|Tower of London|
Now, some would bring up the Princes in the Tower at this point, but being in the camp who sees Richard III as innocent, we’ll not go down that route too far. But let’s not forget the convenient ‘death’ of Henry VI, the traditional place of his assassination today marked with a plaque set into the floor. The man accused of his murder? Um, well, moving on… Nothing to see here! He’s my leading man after all, and we have to stand by our man, don’t we?
Let’s stick to the mayhem…
For six hundred years, the Tower was home to the Tower Menagerie, with the first royal lion kept there in the early 13th Century. In 1235, three leopards arrived from the Holy Roman Emperor to Henry III, and in 1251, a polar bear. Plenty of mayhem here, as the beast was regularly allowed to fish in the Thames at the end of a rope. Crazy then, but imagine if we tried it now.
