THE ROYAL TUDOR BEASTS
The Royal Tudor Beasts Collection
When the House of Lancaster overcame the House of York following the Wars of the Roses, a formidable dynasty was born. Henry VII, following his matrimonial union with Elizabeth of York to unite the houses, was keen to emphasise the legitimacy of his reign.
Ten stone beasts line the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace representing the lineage of Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour. Consisting of real beasts and mythical creatures, we honour the heraldic symbols of one of the nation’s most powerful dynasties in The Royal Tudor Beasts Collection.
A Powerful Union
A regal collection exploring the powerful Tudor dynasty and the famous union between Henry VIII and his third wife, Jane Seymour.
