The Historical Story of the Four Thieves
The thieves were actually spice traders and merchants who imported spices, including cinnamon and clove from India. When the Black Plague hit, all international shipping and trade was closed down. Unable to do business, these spice traders quickly ran out of money and had to find a way to support themselves. Since people in the communities were afraid to touch the dead bodies, they decided to loot the homes and bodies of the plaque victims. They would take clothes, jewelry, pots and pans, or whatever they could find, and then barter with them for food and money. They believed they wouldn’t get sick if they rubbed vinegar, oils, and certain spices all over their bodies. They were able to set up a very lucrative pawn business. Until the King found out that is.
When the King heard about the story of the thieves he wanted to know their secret recipe. He sent his Constables out to capture them. Four of the thieves were caught and brought before the King. He gave them a choice to either share their secret formula of immunity or be burned at the stake. The four thieves decided to share their secret formula with the King of course.
The King immediately posted the thieves secret formula all over the town.
Hence the story of the four thieves. There is an account of the Thieves Story recorded in the Royal English Archives.
