Storyline

Edward Tudor, the Prince of Wales, and Tom Canty, a poor London beggar, are both the same age and were even born on the same day. The two happen to run into each other and notice that they look enough like each other to be twins. The resemblance is even more amazing when they switch clothes, making it almost impossible to tell them apart. Unfortunately, that's exactly what happens when Edward is thrown out of the palace when he is mistaken for an actual beggar, and Tom is treated in a manner that befits a potential King of England. At first the boys have fun with the situation, but the fun soon ends when they realize that they can't go back to their real selves, since no one will believe that they actually are who they say they are. Matters get even more complicated when King Henry VIII suddenly dies, and the Prince of Wales must take his place on the throne. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com
