The last prisoner to be held in the Tower of London was Rudolf Hess, the deputy leader of the Nazi Party. He was held there in 1941 after parachuting into Scotland in a renegade attempt to brook a peace with England. Hess was held in the tower for only four days on the orders of Winston Churchill, before being transferred to a regular prison for the remainder of the war.
