King Charles Wants to Solve the ‘Princes in the Tower’ Murder: ‘After 539 Years We’ll Finally Know What Happened to Them’ | Property

PropertyBritain’s King Charles shrugs his shoulders in a hurry to investigate a 539-year-old murder case. For centuries, people have wondered about the identity of the two boys in the Tower of London, whose bones were found. A DNA test should now show whether it really is about the two missing princes: Edward and Richard. They were to be killed by their uncle, who wanted the crown for himself, and was not afraid that his hands would get dirty because of it.

The Queen refused to allow the boys’ remains to be exhumed for a DNA test, but her successor believes otherwise. Charles wants to solve this murder case, and give the detectives the green light to get to the heart of it all – literally.

It all started with the mysterious disappearance of two young princes. Children of King Edward IV: Edward V was twelve years old, and his younger brother Richard was nine, when they seemed to smoke. Wonderful, because Edward V was king of Great Britain for a very short period, from April 9 to June 25, 1483.

their uncle betrayed them

The problem was that their uncle, Richard, Duke of Gloucester, wanted the crown for himself. So he claimed that his brother’s children were bastards, and had been locked up in the Tower of London, hunting down traitors. Their mother Elizabeth Woodville protested this vigorously, knowing full well that all of her children were indeed her husband’s offspring.

But the duke did his duty. He found a certain character Eleanor Butler, who claimed that the late king had promised her to marry her at first. This questionable promise eventually became binding, automatically making all of his other marriages illegal. In addition to seeing Elizabeth, who has been by his side for life, and her two sons – the only two boys she has ever had out of ten – now disappear behind bars. Richard won the battle and became known as King Richard III.

The two boys were kept in the cold tower, where they had to endure long, boring days with each other’s company just to pass the time. Today hundreds of paintings of young princes can be found, all allegedly in the tower. This is the last place they were seen alive. They were last seen in the summer of 1483, when they were allowed to play together outside in the garden of the Tower of London. Then they disappeared forever.

Shakespeare

Although history books cannot explain what happened to the princes, the general consensus is that their uncle killed them. This idea was also prevalent among the people, as evidenced by a play called “Richard III”, by William Shakespeare, who portrayed the king as a murderous madman. Respected historians Polidor Virgil and Sir Thomas More attribute the assassination to the ambitions of Richard III. They said he had the most motivation, as well as the best access to the boys. Rumor has it that Richard himself or some of his associates suffocated with pillows in their sleep.

to flee?

Although there is a good chance that the princes will actually be killed, there are many rumors circulating. Some say they escaped. However, Edward V is said to have contracted tuberculosis before he was imprisoned in the Tower, so his younger brother Richard was the only one who survived. Amazing: at least three men impersonated Richard a few years later, hoping to take the throne. But this is strange, given that the men who assaulted the throne would be better off appearing as heir to the throne Edward. So it appears that Edward died was seen as a “general truth” among the British people, and that only Richard was able to escape.

According to other stories, both were alive, only to pretend that they were simple construction workers, who had nothing to do with the royal family. Philippa Langley, historian and leader of the Lost Princes Project, believes there is evidence that their mother, Elizabeth, made a deal with Richard III. A deal that allowed Prince Edward to acquire a new identity under the name John Evans. Notably, a tomb for John Evans was also built in the local Caldridge Church. The face of his statue stares directly into the stained-glass window depicting the young Edward F. Langley thinks it’s no accident. “It was the same person, he had survived to become a commoner. The deer was incorporated into the Edward V stained glass window. John Evans was a supervisor of the nearby deer park. All references are to him.”

Most likely, their bodies were buried under the steps of the Tower of London, where many bodies – including those of two children – were exhumed in 1600. Also at Windsor Castle, the bodies of two boys were found in 1700, which could have been princes.

In total, there are about six bodies, three groups of two, that could belong to the missing princes. Tracy Borman, director of Historic Royal Palaces (the organization that runs the royal family’s palaces), believes Charles wants the case resolved. He is ready to reopen the royal vaults where the bodies are stored. Through a DNA test, we can then tell which bodies belonged to Edward and Richard. This way we know once and for all what happened to them.”

Their alleged killer had already tasted the vine. Less than two years after their disappearance, in 1485, Richard III was killed during the Battle of Bosworth. The final and decisive battle of the so-called War of the Roses. From that last battle, the Tudor house was born. Henry VII took on Richard III and won. He seized power and went on to found the well-known Tudor dynasty, of which his son Henry VIII became the most famous king.

Richard III was buried without much fanfare near Leicester, only surprisingly found in 2012, under a parking garage.
