KIng Henry VIII Jigsaw
A 250 piece wooden jigsaw puzzle produced exclusively for the National Portrait Gallery by Wentworth Wooden Puzzles.
This portrait shows Henry VIII in his mid forties when he had already begun the process of dismantling monasteries and religious house and had executed his second wife Anne Boleyn and the Bishop John Fisher. The portrait derives from a type established by Hans Holbein the Younger, held in the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid. However, this version painted on copper by a later artist may date from the late-sixteenth or early-seventeenth century.

Henry VIII succeeded his father Henry VII to the throne in 1509. He is well known for his six marriages, and for ordering the dissolution of religious houses which took place between 1535-39. Aided by his ministers, Cardinal Wolsey and Thomas Cromwell, his reign was characterised by ambition abroad and ruthlessness at home, firmly establishing the Tudor family as the ruling dynasty in England. His quest for a male heir and a divorce from his first wife Katherine of Aragon, led to his establishing himself as head of the Church in England in place of the Pope in 1535.
