This is the death mask of England's King Henry VII (the father of King Henry VIII), who was the first Tudor monarch and reigned from 1485 to 1509. It is said to be the finest death mask in existence. It's also unusual in that his eyes are open.
Hunting Sword used by Henry VIII. Hunting was viewed as "an essential mark of a gentleman and...was valued as a test of courage, strength, and agility..." (Tudor England: An Encyclopedia, 327). It became a main "pastyme" of the Tudor monarchs, especially Henry VIII. Bows and arrows, crossbows, and even guns were used when hunting. Another weapon yielded was the hunting dog.
Coronation portrait of Elizabeth I. She wore her hair loose probably to prove to the masses as she rode through the streets, on her way to her coronation, that she was Henry's daughter (he was well-known for his red hair), and therefore not a bastard as had been alleged during her mother's time. She was 26, already tested by many plots, an imprisonment and threats against her life. Yet she persevered and became England's most successful and famous monarch.
