We asked you: "Which monarch's artefacts would you most like to own?"
The answer was a resounding victory for Henry VIII.
· Henry VIII 27%
· Elizabeth I 17%
· Charles I 11%
The result is a testament to the enduring fascination with Henry - whether it's his six wives, his break from the Catholic Church, or the really important stuff, i.e: the ongoing debate on whether he did actually compose Greensleeves. (He didn't).
Collectors with an eye on selling for a profit in the future will also be interested to see the popularity for Henry's daughter Elizabeth I, who presided over the country during the Spanish Armada.
Charles I remains, for now, the only British monarch to be executed. His demise brought in 11 years of interregnum in the country, spearheaded by Oliver Cromwell.
