Royal Mysteries

What are your favorite/most intriguing royal mysteries? I'm talking about the big ones like where is Cleopatra, who killed the Prince's in the Tower, who killed Henry Darnley....how the heck was Louis XIV born after all those years?

What happened to all the Russian jewels and treasures after the Bolsheviks came into power? I know some turned up, but a lot did not.

Did the twins born to Bothwell and Mary survive, spirited out of the country by a courtier, lady Mar? There are rumors that this happened. Years ago I posted on a site dedicated to Mary, and there was a poster who claimed he was descended from one of the twins. As I recall he had quite a bit of backup evidence. Perhaps the twins survived but their identity was closely guarded because of the disaster that befell their parents. Their guardians may not have wanted them to ever have a public life.

I've always been fascinated by that!
It would have had to be someone instantly recognizable, or why the mask?

And in those days, who was instantly recognizable, other than the king?
And why was his identity so secret?

Who killed those poor unfortunate Princes in the Tower.

Who ordered the brutal Massacre of St Bartholomew's Day 1572.

Oh good lord that is a good one. Man it's horrible that we will never find out what that was about.
