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.

Hasn’t it been established that he had solid alibis for each of the murders, and that the rumours against him are ones that really can’t be substantiated in any way?

The only reason the idea keeps on being supported is because it makes for a good headline, not because it’s actually plausible.

What was the source of Grigori Rasputin's amazing power to heal/relieve the suffering of Tsarevich Alexei, the unfortunate only son of Russia's last Emperor?

People have speculated that it involved hypnosis, but the serious crisis at the Spala Poland hunting lodge-the one that nearly killed Alexei-took place when Rasputin was in disgrace and many thousands of miles away from the child. He could not have hypnotized him.

But the starets reassured Alexandra via telegram that her boy would escape death from his hemophilia attack and sure enough within 24 hours he began to recover.

Since there are no eyewitness accounts, the better question is what reason is there to believe QV and JB were lovers?

I want to know who ordered the murder of the two Princes in the Tower?


Did Henry VIII feel guilt EVER? I am talking about Thomas More, Anne Boleyn and Katharine Howard. Keeping Princess Mary from Catherine of Aragon? Any of it?


Did Henry II say, Who will rid me of this tiresome man...innocently? Or did he know that his knights would kill Beckett?


Did they really swaddle in a baby, or was the Old Pretender REALLY the son of James II and Mary of Modena).

The theory was presented in a biography of his father in 1962 and at the time it was widely disputed. The prince had alibis for all the murders. It was also blamed on syphilis and there was no evidence the prince ever suffered from it.

I would like to know more of the circumstances surrounding the death in an air crash of Prince George, Duke of Kent in 1942, including the trip to Iceland he and the crew were embarking on at the time.
