Selby Abbey in Yorkshire was reputed to be the birthplace in September 1068 of the future king Henry I.

Read the article. The quotes (IMO) lead one to believe that the artwork somehow should not have been found there. As if it had been previously been stolen or appropriated in the past. There is no hint of that in the article. In fact the Raphael is mentioned as previously not known.

Castle Rising



Two years after Henry I's demise, his widow, Queen Adelaide of Louvain, married William d'Albini, the Earl of Arundel. He built Castle Rising in Norfolk to mark his promoted status as consort of the Queen of England.

Memo to V and A - please sell oversize prints, because that's an excellent print and a desirable format to scale up in size. I have a wall in mind...
