Accepting facts is sometimes difficult. For instance, how could a man like Henry Tudor (who was vile on the outside and inside) leave to posterity a thing of such immense beauty as the his chapel in Westminster Abbey? No doubt he screwed every groat from his architect and stonemasons. They may have wondered if they were paying him! (OK, OK…I’ll stop Henry-bashing) But even so, I think the chapel is the only GOOD thing he ever did!
But this article isn’t only about Henry, for it deals with other monarchs who had influence on the great abbey. There are some wonderful photographs and interesting stories. Well worth a read.
