Catherine of Aragon came from Spain to marry Henry’s brother, Arthur.Arthur soon died, however. Henry and Catherine married in 1509.
Catherine of Aragon had one child, a daughter, who would reign as Mary I (also known as “Bloody Mary”).
Henry’s first marriage was also his longest, lasting from 1509 until 1533.
Desperate for a son, Henry sought an annulment, claiming that the marriage was invalid because Catherine had been married to Arthur. When the pope refused, Henry broke with the Catholic Church, declared himself head of the church in England, and arranged for his own annulment.

With heavy hearts, we’re raising the drawbridge up.

Guarded by the famous Beefeaters in their distinctive dark blue and scarlet uniforms, the Tower of London is also home to resident ravens. Legend has it that if the ravens ever leave, then the castle and the kingdom will fall.

"Of course we’ll be taking good care of the ravens in your absence. They’ll be safe in the fortress until we see you again..

The prisoner who escaped from the Tower of london.

Gerard's most famous exploit is believed to have been masterminded by Nicholas Owen. With help from other members of the Catholic underground, Gerard, along with John Arden, escaped on a rope strung across the Tower moat during the night of 4 October 1597. Despite the fact that his hands were still mangled from the tortures he had undergone, he succeeded in climbing down. He even arranged for the escape of his gaoler (jailer), with whom he had become friendly, and who he knew would be held responsible for the jailbreak.

The Palace of Placentia greenwich south east london during Tudor times..

Birth place of Henry VIII and Henry VIII would go on to make the Palace of Placentia his primary royal palace, and often threw huge parties, banquets and jousting matches in its grounds. The Christmas party that Henry threw in 1516 went down in legend, as this was the first masquerade party ever seen in England! As was written at the time:

The King this year kept the feast of Christmas at Greenwich, where was such an abundance of the viands served to all corners of any honest behaviour as hath been few times seen.”

You might wonder how it would feel to be Henry's chief advisor. "Bad." That's how it would feel. Because you'd know that you weren't living up to your full potential. If you wanted power, acclaim, and political gravitas in the court of King Henry VIII, there was one job for you. And it was gross.

Guy Fawkes

Imprisoned at the tower of london

Fawkes was brought to the Tower of London to be imprisoned and interrogated. Sir William Waad, Lieutenant of the Tower, led much of the interrogation in the Great Hall of the Queen's House, a 16th-century timber-framed building.

Guy Fawkes was put on the rack for 2 days and 2 nights until he confessed to the charges of treason attempting to blowing up the Houses of Parliament.

Guy Fawkes was tortured so brutally that he could not sign his name on the confession documents.

The half timbered Queen's House, which faces Tower Green, was built in around 1530, in the reign of King Henry VIII, in a very different style than the rest of the Tower of London.

Henry VIII probably built the Queen's House for his second Queen, Anne Boleyn, who was executed soon afterwards. Anne is said to have stayed there prior to her ex*****on on nearby Tower Green, ironically imprisoned in the same lodgings that she stayed in before her coronation in 1533. Ann'e lodgings had become uninhabitable by the end of the sixteenth century and were demolished by the end of the eighteenth century. The present Queen's House is not where Anne was imprisoned as these apartments were not built until around 1540, at least 4 years after Anne Boleyn's ex*****on.

There are seven ravens at the tower of london. Poppy is the new addition. 2019

The other ravens are called Jubilee, Harris, Gripp, Rocky, Erin, and Merlina.

It is said that the kingdom and the Tower of London will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress. ... Charles II is thought to have been the first to insist that the ravens of the Tower be protected after he was warned that the crown and the Tower itself would fall if they left.
