Greetings, Simmers!

In case you hadn't already guessed it, I am totally into history....and am a bit of an Anglophile....

Henry VIII's chancellor, Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, originally built the Palace for himself. However, Henry made the observation that the house was more grand than anything HE possessed.... What do you do? If Henry wants it, you give it to him......



Many Thanks to the creators who made this possible

Kativip - Cradle of Darkness
K8 - Parsimonious
CycloneSue - TSR
HafiseAzale - GoS
Sunni - themedievalsims Plumb Bob Keep
Frances - Sims Design Avenue

There isn't a huge amount of medieval/gothic furniture out there but what you will find

You are simply the best! I really adore your works - furnished or not - your lots are always so wonderfully detailed and made with a lot of passion. Hampton Court - the renaissance part of it you made - is absolutely beautiful. I visit it whenever I'm staying in London, and I prefer the renaissance part, because it is unique. The baroque part is also nice, but we have this style in other palaces too. So thank you very, very much for your elaborate work. Perhaps you might consider to do the Tower of London one day?

Another stunner! That Henry, such a child, always wanted what wasn't his!! (I think you'd make a good Hever Castle too )

Rome wasn't built in a day

It does look nice in neighborhood view.... but, I can't imagine not getting in there to decorate... and then, to play it.

Well, someone was busy weren't they!! heehee. The palace is brilliant. I wish I knew you were doing this because I've tracked down some o the tapestries Henry had commissioned for the Great Hall. Enough goldthread to make the room light up in candlelight. It's in one of those WIP folders on my external drive along with a few other hundred or so LOL. Fabulous job Honey.

I would love to see the tapestries! I'm sure you realize that this is the "stripped down" version on Hampton Court. The original palace that I built tipped the scales at over 200mb. Of course, it was furnished... had an armory and barracks, offices for the steward, etc.... the ladies garden and the king's tournament grounds.....

Wow! Red, I don't know how you do it! I cannot manage to 'see' architecture in such a way as to bring it together Anything Like This! This is just amazing!
Oh - and Lions would be one heck of a deterrent. I'd love to see the look on the face of someone who was going to swim across the moat when he felt the hot breath of the King of the Jungle on his face!

With the royal menageries, it was traditional for visitors to bring food for the critters.... I think it was to avoid being eaten!

Well, then you should upload the full lot to the Keep. I'm sure many would love to see what you did with it, me included.

Every time I see your work, I keep thinking, "She can't possibly top this one!"

Then you go ahead and do it anyway. Excellent rendition of Hampton Court! Even Henry would like to live there right now.

I would think that Henry would like to be living anywhere right now.... if he is aware of the fact that he is no longer grossly overweight.....
