How the Restoration Started (Part 1)

Pictured above is Henry IX, Cardinal Duke of York, great-grandson of Charles I, and the one-time owner of the English Crown Jewels. While Charles II, Henry's great-uncle, was restored to the crown of England, after the Cromewellian revolution, Henry was never crowned King of England. Englands loss though, was a great gain for the Roman Catholic Church, with Henry IX leaving a great legacy of building in Italy highighting the finest in Art and Architecture, brining generations of English Speaking Catholics into communion with Rome.
