Where Is Henry VIII's Tudor Crown?

Where is Henry VIII's Tudor Crown?




The infamous Tudor king’s gold crown was first recorded in a 1521 inventory of his jewels, and it contained emeralds, sapphires, rubies, pearls, diamonds, and gold and enamel figurines of various Christian figures including 3 depictions of Christ, which Henry later had replaced with three kings of England.

It was used by English monarchs until the execution of King Charles the first in 1649, when it was then destroyed — what you see here is a modern replica. However, remarkably in 2017, a man named Kevin Duckett discovered a tiny gold figure, only half an inch tall, which quite possibly belonged to the original Tudor crown.
