I was the son of King Edward the Fourth and Queen
Elizabeth Woodville. I was born at a time when different families were fighting to rule over the
country. When I was just 13, my father died and I was made King. My mother's family and my uncle's
family hated each other.
My uncle, Prince Richard, arrested my mother's family and had some of them
killed. My younger brother and I were kept in the Tower of London. My uncle said he would look after
us, but then he said my parents were not properly married and I could not be King. He made himself
King Richard the Third.
Nobody is exactly sure what happened to my brother and I. We never
came out of the Tower of London. We were probably murdered. Two years later, King Richard
was killed in battle by a man called Henry Tudor. He became King Henry the Seventh, the
first Tudor King.
