Many places that were built do not survive. There are two men that I feel particular chagrin about not covering in any depth — Thomas Cromwell, Earl of Essex and Edward Seymour, Duke of Somerset — but there had to be something to see. Christopher Marlowe, another fascinating character, was murdered by Ingram Frizer in a lodging in Deptford: but where is that now? This is fundamentally a book about where history happened. For several years, I was a curator at Hampton Court Palace and one of the things I grasped while working for Historic Royal Palaces was the value of telling ‘history where it happened’.
The portrayal by William Scrots in 1546, in its original frame, is shown in a distorted, stretched perspective (called an anamorphosis — the skull at the bottom of Holbein’s Ambassadors from 1533, next door in the National Gallery, is a famous example of this technique). If you stand at a certain angle and look down the viewfinder, you can see Edward in proper perspective. Perhaps the painting was designed to amuse the soon-to-be boy-king, as well as show off Scrots’s skills. Edward’s portrait of a year later is a much more regal affair: he looks just like a little version of Henry VIII in Holbein’s cartoon.

More famous prisoners include Sir Walter Ralegh, gaoled three times in the Bloody Tower (as the Garden Tower was renamed after the murder of the Princes); Sir Thomas More [see LINCOLN’S INN], Bishop John Fisher and the poet Sir Thomas Wyatt the Elder who was interned in the Bell Tower (sadly, not open to the public).
