Part of Henry VIII’s birthplace discovered

1 post in this topic

Workers at London’s Old Royal Naval College were prepping the site of a new visitors center for the Painted Hall, considered the Sistine Chapel of England, when they unearthed something equally incredible: two rooms from the Palace of Placentia, reports Giles Broadbent at The Wharf.

Built in 1433, and later known as Greenwich Palace, the palace is the birthplace of King Henry VIII and his daughters Mary I and Elizabeth I, and was considered one of the most luxurious of the Tudor-era palaces.
