- Not available
A guide to the armours and weapons of Henry VIII in the Royal Armouries collection, together with pieces from other collections in Britain and abroad. The armours of King Henry VIII stand as a lasting monument to the sheer physical size of the monarch who stands like a colossus over the making of modern Britain. Yet the armours and weapons of the King also bear witness to the King's involvement in European politics, his alliances and wars with other heads of state such as Francois I of France and the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I. They also illustrate his interest in the latest military inventions, as well as his patronage of some of the finest artists and craftsmen of his day.
