 Quoting: ravenstoleavethetower 1370380


According to popular belief, Charles II of England (reigned 1660-1685) once heard a prophecy
that if ravens left the Tower of London it would “fall,” so he ordered that the wings of seven
ravens in the Tower be trimmed. Until recently, this claim was not challenged even in scholarly
literature. Th ere are, however, no allusions to the Tower Ravens before the end of the nineteenth
century.

The ravens, today meticulously cared for by Yeoman Warders, are largely an invented tradition, designed to give an impression of continuity with the past.

This article examines the few known references, both graphic and textual, to the Tower Ravens through 1906.
