Week 12 – The Princes in the Tower

December 6, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’m sure students have learnt much from the section on the French Revolution. We are having a test on Thursday on all work completed on this topic. The next section of work will cover English History and we’ll be doing a short project on the Princes in the Tower.

One of the biggest mysteries in English History is that of Richard III and the Princes in the Tower. It centres around the “disappearance” of the uncrowned 12 year-old Edward V and his younger brother Richard, Duke of York. At the heart of this investigation lies the question, did Richard III, their “wicked” uncle, have the boys killed so that he could seize the throne for himself? Or was another suspect to blame? Read the stories from the links below and see what you think.
