The Bloody Tower This tower dates from the reign of Edward III, and Richard II and was called by its present name as early as 1597. It was originally known as The Garden Tower.
It is widely assumed the Plantagenet King Richard III killed his nephews here in the summer of 1483 after their father, Edward IV, died. The two brothers were the only sons of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville surviving at the time of their father's death in 1483. Twelve-year-old Edward V, expecting his coronation, was taken to the Tower of London along with his nine-year-old brother Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York.
