King Richard III lives on in our cultural imagination as one of England’s most nefarious villains, particularly for the suspected murder of his two young nephews while they were confined to the infamous Tower of London in the summer of 1483. 

No one knew what happened for certain, even in 1675, when workers found the remains of two children buried underneath a staircase in the Tower. 

Many people assume that these were the long lost princes—but as we'll discuss, there's much more to the story including a scandalous royal marriage, another major suspect, and some wild conspiracy theories.
