The Tower of London has also been the infamous setting for stories of royal tragedy and death. During the Wars of the Roses, Henry VI was murdered here in 1471 and, later, the children of his great rival Edward IV - the Princes in the Tower - vanished within its walls in 1483 Elizabeth and Edward did see each other years before his death. After their wedding in 1937, Edward and Simpson lived in France and rarely came back to England King Edward VIII leaped into financial uncertainty the moment he signed the Instrument of Abdication on December 10, 1936.

Dudley did not make himself Lord Protector, and in fact encouraged Edward to proclaim his majority when he reached the age of 16. Unfortunately, Edward's health was failing, and by early 1553 he was dying Edward VI's untimely death at the age of fifteen has given rise to the rumour that he was always a sickly child.

This was an attempt to keep England a Protestant nation, as Jane was a Protestant, and Edward's sister, Mary, the next in line to the throne, was Catholic. Edward VI died of tuberculosis in 1553
Bertie, as he was known, was the second son of the King George V. The King's eldest son was Prince Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David who'd always been known to friends.

The Witan may have been involved in the succession because Edward the Confessor did not have a direct heir. Harold was Edward's brother-in-law. Some say it is a myth that the Witan or Witenagemot was involved. Rather, people say, Harold was the true power in England and simply took the throne Richard II became King of England after the death of his grandfather, Edward III. Tragedy struck England when Richard's father, the Black Prince, was struck down with dysentery in 1376, predeceasing his father by one year. Since Black Prince had an heir, the crown did not pass to any of his younger brothers
