The only other exceptions are the boy-king, Edward V, one of the ‘Princes in the Tower’ who was murdered before he could be crowned, and Edward VIII, who abdicated in 1936 to marry the American divorcée Wallis Simpson. The coronation chair, dating from 1298, on which every subsequent crowned monarch sat, can be seen at the Abbey, while the first monarch to introduce English into the coronation ceremony, Elizabeth I, also gave the Abbey its special status as a ‘Royal Peculiar’, answerable directly to the monarch.

There are also notable portraits of her favourites. Two of the many portraits of Elizabeth’s favourite, Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, are here: one from 1575, the year he last wooed her [see KENILWORTH CASTLE], and a Hilliard miniature from 1576. In the portrait, Leicester wears the somewhat effete clothing of the Elizabethan male: a figure-hugging doublet in red and gold thread, and short, wide breeches, with his legs unabashedly on show in silk stockings. Another of Elizabeth I’s favourites, Sir Christopher Hatton [see KIRBY HOUSE], is depicted in a Hilliard miniature from 1581, as is the upstart Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, who has also been painted life-size by Gheeraerts.

Edward the Confessor first founded an Anglo-Saxon abbey here in 960, and the present abbey dates from 1245 when it was built by Henry III to house Edward the Confessor’s shrine. The pointed arches, flying buttresses and rose windows are typical of the French-inspired Gothic style that was fashionable in thirteenth-century architecture, and nearly every addition to the Abbey since — including the eighteenth-century West Towers by Nicholas Hawksmoor — have copied the thirteenth-century original. The one exception is the beautiful sixteenth-century fan-vaulted Lady Chapel in the east end of the Abbey behind the High Altar, which was built by Henry VII after the death of his beloved wife, Elizabeth of York, in 1502.
