Henry IV of France

My contribution to “The Royal Challenge” Collaboration – Please meet Henry IV of France, also called Good King Henry or Henry the Great.

This man had a very interesting history, being the first French monarch from the House of Bourbon. He was raised as a Catholic but he also had Protestant inclinations, too (his mother had a little guilt in this regard). During the years of his reign he was considered an usurper by some Catholics and a traitor by some Protestants. Because of that, Henry had to survive 12 assassination attempts throughout his lifetime. However in 1610, a Catholic fanatic named François Ravaillac was finally able to fatally stab him.

400 years later, Philippe Froesch, a cranio-facial expert, reconstructed Henri IV’s face based on the king’s skull. (See the main inspiration photo).
Based on the main inspiration photo and on different portrait-paintings of the King, my Good King Henry came up. This is the way I see him – this is my reconstruction :)

Many thanks to Raquel Garcia for this opportunity!
