Nonsuch Palace

Post by sujin007 on Sat Nov 17, 2012 1:26 pm

Henry VIII, a man of great appetites and jealousies, could not bear the thought of being considered a lesser monarch than his continental rivals.

The palaces he inherited were rather dingy affairs, and so he decided to build a palace of equal status to that of the King of France.

This palace was designed to be the jewel in crown of Renaissance architecture; no building would be its match in all the world.

Henry therefore decided to name it Nonsuch. The cost of the building was absolutely ruinous, and the results did not equal Henry’s grand desires.

Though it was the grandest house in Britain, few of Henry’s successors were particularly attached to it. Charles II gave it as a gift to a mistress.

When she fell on hard times due to gambling debts, she sold off the house to be used for building materials. Today, nothing remains of the palace, except the fragments imbedded within other buildings.
