Edward & Richard ~ the 'Princes in the Tower'. These two boys were, in fact Edward V (uncrowned king of England) and his younger brother Richard, the only two surviving sons of the late Edward IV. History (and the Tudors) tell us that the boys were murdered some time after 1483 while resident in the Tower of London, and give the likely culprit as their uncle, King Richard III.
