Renovation reveals Henry VIII mural

Most people renovating their homes find 1970's wallpaper, but a couple in Somerset, England, peeled back their old wallpaper and found an early painting of King Henry VIII.

The monarch is seated on his throne wearing a crown and holding a scepter. The image probably dates to the 1530s. At the time it was the home of Thomas Cranmer, who later became the Archbishop of Canterbury. He may have commissioned it as an expression of loyalty to the king.

The image may be the only known surviving wall mural of Henry VIII in existence. [photo]
