Spectacular Introductory Offer to an exciting new series . . .
KING RICHARD III. His evil reputation may well be the greatest hoax of all time. But hero or villain, his death in battle at Bosworth Field marked the end of the War of the Roses -the series of bloody clashes between the houses of Lancaster and York over the crown.
KING HENR Y VIII. Anne Boleyn, the second of his six wives, laughed when he locked her up in the Tower and sentenced her to be beheaded along with five men accused of having been her lovers. She thought her royal husband was only testing her. He wasn't.
KING CHARLES I. ‘7 fear not death," he said, when Cromwell sentenced him to die. He kissed his children goodby, forgave his executioner, and tucked his long hair up under his cap so it would not deflect the axe. Cromwell called his death “a cruel necessity.”
Come, walk with Kings.
Come, walk with Kings and let the ancient gates of London’s Tower creak shut behind you.
Walk with King Edward III as he sallies forth from his Tower cell to avenge the murder of his father, and seize the kingdom from his mother and her lover.
Walk with the boy-king Richard II as he faces 100,000 rebels on Tower Hill and refuses to surrender his jewelled sword to Wat Tyler.
Walk with King Henry V as he hurries through London, pawning the Crown Jewels to raise money for an invasion of France-that would result in his astonishing victory at Agincourt.
In short, adventure through nine tumultuous centuries of British history, and meet not just Kings and Queens but also the rogues and rebels, Tyrants and traitors and revolutionaries who swirled around the magnificent, forbidding TOWER OF LONDON.
