White Tower of London History  
     

Officially known today as "Her Majesty's Palace and Fortress, the Tower of London" the Tower is certainly one of the most famous and intriguing buildings in England. Built on a site at the eastern edge of the Roman city of London on the north bank of the River Thames, for over 500 years, the Tower provided a home for the monarchy and a base of its power.

JP EDITIONS' version of the White Tower is an historical one ... circa 1547 ... at the end of the reign of King Henry VIII. The Tower at that time included several significant architectural features later changed or removed. The most significant of these were probably the powerful twin-towered Gatehouse and the smaller Norman style windows ... both keys to the defense of the Tower in earlier times.
