The Dulwich Picture Gallery

The Dulwich Picture Gallery in South London has a most fascinating set of early 17th century royal portraits assembled by the English actor Edward Alleyn (1566-1626).

This batch of kings and queens, includes a portrait of Anne Boleyn. As the mother of Elizabeth I, she was generally the only one of Henry VIII's six wives - and usually the only Queen Consort - to be included in such collections.
