Just some notes of interest while I work on the upcoming episodes! Eleanor’s visions of what might have happened and who might have been responsible for the disappearance of the princes in the tower is inspired by my fascination… ok, obsession… with this mystery! In trying to incorporate this into my story line, I have spent a great deal of time researching the story, the events leading up to it, and some of the consequences and outcomes for those in any way involved in it. It is one of the few remaining real unsolved mysteries left in history! My research has provided a number of suspicious people who haven’t been associated with the event previously? Some of them may not have been involved in the actual event… and, there is doubt even as to what specifically the actual event was as no bodies have ever been truly identified and proven to be those of the missing boys. Because of this, I have been able to weave the disappearance of the princes into my story without destroying too much of the actual history of the events!
Some of my recent research included an easy read, but still quite interesting book by Mark Garber. In his book, ‘Cold Case Reopened’, he provided me with some new information and some additional theories on who might have been involved and how might have benefited them. The book is not from a historical view point, but a police investigator’s and profiler’s. His added information helped me to think outside the box and come up with my own somewhat plausible story of what might have taken place, who might have been involved and what their benefit or motive might have been.
It will take me a bit of time to get it sorted out and put together, but hopefully it will be worth it! I have found an interesting connection that will lead us back to Anne and her demise eventually?
