Since the reign of King John (1199-1216) monarchs had kept exotic beasts at the Tower. However, by 1831-2 it had become impractical to keep the menagerie here and it was moved to Regent's Park to establish London Zoo.
The animals were gifts from foreign rulers and were kept for the monarch's amusement. In Elizabeth I's reign (1558-1603) visitors were allowed in to see the queen's lions, tiger, wolf, eagle and porcupine! In 1622, James I had platforms built so that he and his courtiers could watch the beasts fighting in the Lion Tower.
