    The guardians of the Tower

    There are nine ravens at the Tower today. Their lodgings are to be found next to the Wakefield Tower.

    Legend says that the kingdom and the Tower will fall if the six resident ravens ever leave the fortress.

    It was Charles II, according to the stories, who first insisted that the ravens of the Tower should be protected.
