From the Collection: Portrait of Henry VII of England

Probably after Meynnart Wewyck, “Henry VII of England,” 1504/09. Bequest of Catherine Jean Quirk, M1989.63. Photo by P. Richard Eells.

English history can appear to be a long list of kings and queens with the same names. The queen that most of us are familiar with today is Queen Elizabeth II. The first and only other Queen Elizabeth ruled from 1558 to 1603.
