Henry, Prince of Wales (1594-1612), Eldest son of James I
Sitter associated with 41 portraits
The eldest son of James I and Anne of Denmark, Henry was by all accounts a remarkable prince, intelligent, learned, excelling in feats of arms and an informed, enthusiastic patron of the arts. A fervent Protestant, Henry took an avid interest in foreign affairs and highly approved of the choice of Frederick, Elector Palatine as a husband for his sister Elizabeth. He died suddenly, probably of typhoid, at the age of eighteen, when the preparations for this marriage were already in hand. Devoted to Elizabeth, his last words are said to have been 'where is my dear sister?'.
