Henry VII (reigned 1485 - 1509) (T115)
Artist: Unknown Netherlandish artist
When Richard III fell at the Battle of Bosworth, his crown was picked up and placed on the head of Henry Tudor. He married Elizabeth of York and so united the two warring houses, York and Lancaster. He was a skillful politician but avaricious. The material wealth of the country increased greatly. During Henry’s reign playing cards were invented and the portrait of his wife Elizabeth has appeared eight times on every pack of cards for nearly 500 years.
All prints come with a preservative coating to prevent fading and wear, are mounted on card, framed in a gold ornate frame and labelled on the reverse with the original painting name, the artist name and the date of the original painting (where available).
