Princes in the tower by emmav Princes in the tower by emmav
One of my favourite historical stories, and one of the saddest. I listened to some emo-film soundtrack whilst colouring this and my mind reeled with the reminder of how many sacrifices have been made in this country's past to get us where we are...many of them unwilling.

Kate Brown did a fab comic based on the story in the first Best New Manga anthology (or was it the second?). It's a desperately sad point in our history...and still unsolved in my eyes.

Aye, who knows the truth of what happened? But either way, their story is very sad.

I cried when I watched the Kuroshitsuji episode about them (16). ;O

This is so beautiful!

I have that book, and the section about these princes is my favourite bit. I wish there was a longer section, i'd have really liked to ready further :(
