On this day in history, 18th March 1554, the twenty year old Lady Elizabeth was escorted to the Tower of London and imprisoned there.
Can you imagine her terror, being taken to the place where her mother was imprisoned and executed?
You can read all about it in my article “The Imprisonment of Elizabeth”.

did mary throw her in the tower of london?
if she did why?
if she didn’t then who did? and why ?
Mary did indeed throw her in the Tower of London.
She did this because she was lied to by Sir Thomas Wyatt, the leader of the rebellion against Mary to try to over throw her. A letter is thought to be intercepted between Elizabeth and Wyatt. That is why she ended up there in the first place.
