Sir Walter Raleigh's cell in the Bloody Tower at the Tower of London.⠀

Wonderful recreation by the curators at the Tower of London, using the collection to bring this story to life for visitors. .⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Raleigh was arrested on 19 July 1603, charged with treason for his involvement in the Main Plot against Elizabeth's successor, James I, and imprisoned in the Tower of London. He remained imprisoned in the Tower until 1616. While there, he wrote many treatises and the first volume of The Historie of the World about the ancient history of Greece and Rome. His son, Carew, was conceived and born (1604) while Raleigh was imprisoned in the Tower.Raleigh was beheaded in the Old Palace Yard at the Palace of Westminster on 29 October 1618. According to biographers, Raleigh's last words (as he lay ready for the axe to fall) were: "Strike, man, strike!"⠀

Painting of the Two Princes from the Tower. Unsure of artist and dates but will find out and update!⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Bones thought to belong to the princes were discovered in 1674 when a staircase leading to the White Tower was demolished. The bones were later removed to the Henry VII Chapel at Westminster Abbey at the command of Charles II. Richard III was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 by the Lancastrian Henry Tudor, who ascended to the throne as King Henry VII.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
.⠀
According to legend, the Bloody Tower is haunted by the ghosts of the two princes. Guards in the late fifteenth century reported that passing the Bloody Tower, they sighted the shadows of two small figures gliding down the stairs still wearing the white night shirts they had on the night they disappeared. They were said to stand silently, hand in hand, before fading back into the stones of the Bloody Tower.⠀

Blue Monday 💙 despite it apparently being the most depressing day of the year the hubs has had a good day so far. We went to Hampton Court Palace and the rain cleared long enough for us to see the stunning gardens and lake. Off for dinner shortly to conclude #stewfest 🤷🏻‍♀️
