After Henry took his dead brother Arthur's bride the foundations were laid for one of the most spectacular reigns in English history.

By the time of his death, he had married six times.

This is where King Henry VIII was enthroned in 1509. Since 1308, when it was commissioned by King Edward I, all but two monarchs have been crowned in the chair. This image was taken in 1987 when the Stone of Scone was still there.
