They were imprisoned as children in the Tower of London by Richard III (their brother) on the grounds of illegitimacy. They were later smothered with a pillow as they slept.



It's thought their father, Edward IV who was born out of wedlock, making that line (including Richard III and the current queen) illegitimate heirs to the throne.

I think I've got that right.

You might enjoy this documentary, Ro.
