Henry VIII, King of England - Lucas Horenbout

A miniature of Henry VIII c. 1526 by Lucas Horenbout. In the Louvre Museum, Paris.

This portrait is a fine example of the profile likeness taken when Edward was about nine years old, on the eve of his succession as King.

A larger example, thought to be from Scrot’s studio, is in the National Portrait Gallery, Lo...

This miniature represents Elizabeth I, the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, who reigned from 1558 to 1603. She wears a red and white rose, the traditional symbol of the Tudors, under whom the competing claims of the Houses of Lancaster (represented by a red rose) and of York (a white rose) were united. The dress worn by the sitter has been dated to around 1560, just after Elizabeth became Queen.

King Henry VIII (1491-1547) This earlier image, by contrast, was not painted to commemorate the strength and triumphs of the Tudor dynasty but to record a truthful likeness of the young king. It shows Henry just after he had started to grow a beard, which seems to have caused some comment.

Portrait of King Henry VIII (1491-1547) circa 1535.  It was most probably painted whilst the King was still married to Anne Boleyn,  and is, therefore, an intriguing glimpse of the man, who had at first courted her in the early years of the decade and married her officially in 1533, before becoming disenchanted by her failure to produce a living son.
