Henry VII - Henry VIII's Dad

By SlowSong
A bust of Henry VII taken at the V&A in London for an earlier challenge. The b/w gave it a spooky look.

Henry VII died at Richmond Palace on 21 April 1509 of tuberculosis and was buried at Westminster Abbey, next to his wife, Elizabeth, in the chapel he commissioned. He was succeeded by his second son, Henry VIII (reign 150947).
