The "Curtain Wall," of great antiquity, is pierced by the windows of the Lieutenant's Lodgings, now called " The King's Hons.e," and one of these windows lights the Council Chamber, where Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators were tried and condemned, 1605. The Tmitors' Gate (PI. IV), with St. Thomas's Tower, is now on our right. Observe the masonry which supports the wide span of the arch. This gate, when the Thames was more of a highway than it is at present, was often used as an entrance to the Tower. St. Thomas's Tower was built by Henry III, and ce:mtains a small chapel or oratory dedicated to St. Thomas of Canterbury. In later times it was found convenient as a landing place for prisoners who had been trie·l at Westminster; and here successively Edward Duke of Buckingham (15�1), Sir Thomas More, Queen Anne Boleyn, Cromwell Earl of Essex, Queen Katharine Howard (1542), Seymour Duke of Somerset (1551), Lady Jane Grey, the Princess (afterwards Queen) Elizabeth, Devereux Earl of Essex (1601), and .Tames Duke of Monmouth, passed under the -arch on their way to prison or the scaffold. Opposite is ·. . The Bloody Tower (Pl. III). Under this Tower we enter the inner ward. It dates from the reigns of Edward III and Richard II, and was called by its present name as early. as 1597, being popularly believed to be the scene of the murder of Edward V and his brother the Duke of York, as well as of Henry VI. It was originally known as the Garden Tower, as its upper story opens on that part of the parade ground which was formerly the Constable's Garden. Here Sir Walter Raleigh was allowed to. walk during his longimprisonment,andcould sometimesconverse over the wall with the passers-by. Observe· the groove
