Thomas Blood’s steeling

Originally shared by Ed Pearce

Thomas Blood was a parliamentarian during the English Civil War, who was deprived of his estate at the Restoration. On May 9, 1671, with three accomplices he made an infamous attempt to steal the Crown Jewels of England from the Tower of London. Having befriended the jewel keeper, Blood arranged a private viewing, during which time the men made off with the treasures. They were pursued and captured; but Blood was pardoned by King Charles II, who took him to court and restored his estate.
