GREETINGS CARDS THE TOWER MENAGERIE

£3.25

During the reign of King John (1199-1216) a host of exotic animals began to arrive at the Tower of London. These gifts from foreign nobles created what became known as The Royal Menagerie. Over the years the animals included: a polar bear from the King of Norway, an African elephant from Louis IX of France - arriving at the Tower by boat, a cannonball-throwing baboon and a pair of ostriches which, like most of the creatures at the Menagerie, were the first of their kind ever to be seen in Britain.
