Also known as Her Majesty's Royal Palace and Fortress, The Tower of London was one of the many castles built as part of the Norman Conquest of England. It has been extended several times in the past and has always played a major role in English history. For some time, the Tower was used as a prison. Many notable figures were imprisoned here, including Sir Walter Raleigh with his wife Elizabeth Throckmorton, Guy Fawkes, Anne Boleyn and even Elizabeth I. Besides this, the Tower was used as an armoury, a treasury, a menagerie, the home of the Royal Mint, a public record office, and the home of the Crown Jewels of England.
