My weekly public (free) patreon post now up and ready to be looked at. Link above.

Several images but in many ways this is the most wonderful. It shows Henry VII of England and his three surviving children grieving for the death in childbirth of Queen Elizabeth of York when her son, the future Henry VIII, was only 11. Henry can be seen dressed in green sobbing into his mother’s bed at the upper left with his sisters Princesses Mary and Margaret below. 

Should you be interested in and can afford to help support my work please check out what’s available at the various levels.

Last post in this books of hours series. A new spring series starting a week from today. Sarah.
