The Murder of The Two Princes at The Tower (2000) by Stephen B Whatley

The Murder of The Two Princes at The Tower (2000) by Stephen B Whatley
Part of the bloody history of The Tower of London, that artist Stephen B Whatley would not have chosen to paint independently; this subject is a potent part of the story of Her Majesty’s Tower of London, for which this was one of a series of 30 paintings commissioned from the artist in 2000.

The two princes were the sons of King Edward IV (1442-1483) – namely, the uncrowned Edward V and his brother Richard, Duke of York. It is commonly believed that King Richard III (1452-1485) ordered the deaths of his nephews.

According to the Chancellor of England, Sir Thomas More (1478-1535), who wrote of ‘the dolorous end of those babes’, their murder was carried out by two assassins who smothered the princes in their bed. They were reputedly murdered in The Garden Tower, later renamed The Bloody Tower (on this account) – and buried in the precincts.

In 1674, when workmen were demolishing a stone staircase on the south side of The White Tower, they found a chest containing the skeletons of two children. None doubted at the time that the remains were those of Edward IV’s sons; and by order of Charles II they were re-interred in The Innocents’ Corner in Westminster Abbey, London.

This painting was partly inspired by a black and white reproduction of an imagined painting by James Northcote, from about 1790. The entire series of 30 paintings are now permanently reproduced throughout the main walkway to Her Majesty’s Tower; and many of these vivid works – including |Stephen’s paintings of The Bloody Tower and The White Tower -can be seen on this site; just type in ‘Tower of London’ into the serach box of this site.
