Christmas with Henry VIII

My mother and sister made a trip to the UK last year and the absolute coolest souvenirs they brought back were a set of Christmas tree ornaments with Henry and his six wives. I'm not sure where exactly they were purchased, but I think it was a gift shop at either the Tower of London or Hampton Court.

Here's Henry: (he's sure no Jonathan Rhys-Meyers)

(In the course of googling to try to confirm which wife was which, I found that they are for sale as a set and individually. If you'd also like to have an English-themed Christmas tree, you can! The set seems to be different than the individual ones.)

Elizabeth I is mine! The 4% (redheads) have to stick together.
