PRINCE HENRY, Prince of Wales (1594-1612) was a highly cultured and charming son of James I. His titles were Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Stewart of Scotland. He was a devoted Protestant, and had he not died in 1612, being succeeded by his younger brother Charles I, the entire course of British history would have been different. His charm and elegant easy manner was a complete contrast to the “Right of Kings” demeanor of his younger brother Charles who faced the executioner’s ax at Whitehall on order of Cromwell. If only Henry had lived……. This is going to be a fascinating exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. I love London and all its many magnificent exhibitions year after year. FABULOUS.
