From the building and purpose of Stonehenge to the disappearance of the Mary Celeste's crew, there are plenty of things in history that remain unanswered, and possibly never will be fully explained. What are your favourites?
Myself, I've always been interested in the mystery surrounding the death of King Ludwig II of Bavaria (an interesting person while he was alive, too). The official story is that he and his doctor drowned, yet both bodies were found floating with no water in their lungs. Over the years, evidence has supposedly arisen that suggests he may have been shot instead, yet a lot of that evidence has disappeared before it could be verified, and what remains is hardly conclusive. Though this latter theory seems more likely to me, the fact we can't be 100% sure actually makes the whole thing more interesting to me.

The Princes in the Tower is a big one for me. Did they die of natural causes? If not, who ordered their deaths?
