The infamous Tower of London. It was here that the two younger brothers of Princess Elizabeth were murdered. Since Elizabeth was the oldest daughter of Edward IV, she became heiress to the throne. Her father had negotiated with several men to marry her but it had not happened, leaving her unmarried at the time she became the next in line to receive the crown. Since her father, King Edward IV was dead, the King in power when her brothers were murdered was Richard III, whom even he contemplated marrying her. But Henry Tudor and Elizabeth asked Parliament for permission to marry, which they did in early 1486. It was almost two years later when she was crowned queen.
