King Henry VIII

Hampton Court Palace was Henry VIII's favourite palace.  The gatehouse shown on the ring is also known today as Anne Boleyn's gate, after Henry's second wife. Work was still underway on Anne Boleyn's apartments above the gate when the King, having tired of her, had her executed.There is something quite cool about the blood red path leading to the gatehouse. A bit of gothic quirkiness that speaks of hidden histories.
