Yale of Beaufort

With the body of a goat, tusks of a boar and tail of a lion, the Yale of
Beaufort is one of the most peculiar of the ten heraldic guardians
chosen by Henry VIII to guard Hampton Court Palace.

Moat Bridge

Closely associated with the powerful Beaufort family, the Yale of Beaufort on the moat Bridge was presented holding the Arms of Jane Seymour to reinforce her authority and influence as the king’s new wife.

The yale is also linked to the title of Somerset, which Jane Seymour’s brother Edward held as Duke. It is thought that Henry VIII also chose the yale as a Queen’s Beast to honour her brother.

Portrayed as a strong defender, the Yale of Beaufort is one of The Queen’s Beasts. It has a crown collar, signifying royal ownership, and the chain around the tusked body demonstrates how the powerful creature has been tamed.
