Madame Tussaud's- Princes in the Tower

Here at Madame Tussaud's is King Edward V and Richard of Shrewsbury being "protected" in the Tower of London by their uncle Richard Plantagenet. Nobody saw them alive again and Richard Plantagenet took control of the crown and became the infamous Richard III. These are some pretty cool figures, but their situation is so sad that they should belong in the Chamber of Horrors. That English history has some crazy stuff in it. Nice detail in the wax figures, great costumes and a well designed set makes this scene top notch. The scene appears to be based on the painting by Hippolyte Delaroche.
