Edward and Richard were the young children of Edward IV and Elizabeth Woodville in the 15th century. Edward V stood to take the throne but both princes were considered illegitimate after an Act from Parliament saying Edward IV and Elizabeth's marriage was invalid and Richard III took the throne in his nephew's place. Both boys were never seen again after 1483. Years later, small skeletons were found underneath the stairs of the chapel in the White Tower, the main keep of the Tower of London.
