To ensure the (3)   (protect) of these birds Charles II ruled that there should always
be at (4)   (little) six ravens inhabiting the Tower.
One of the first (5)   (describe) of the Tower of London’s ravens appeared in a novel
by a Japanese writer, The Tower of London. He wrote that those executed in the Tower were
turned into ravens. It is a fabulous dark story that adds to the (6)   (magic) of the place.
Today, the ravens are (7)   (register) as ‘soldiers’ of the Kingdom, and, thus, can be
