The Elevation of the Queens House to the Park at Greenwich Invented by Inigo Jones 1639...

Plate 15. See PAH3292 another copy. The Queen’s House, Greenwich, was commissioned by Anne of Denmark, wife of James I. James was often at the Tudor palace of Placentia, where the Old Royal Naval College now stands - it was as important a residence of the early Stuart dynasty as it had been for the Tudors. Traditionally he is said to have given the Manor of Greenwich to Anne in apology for having sworn at her in public, after she accidentally shot one of his favourite dogs while hunting in 1614.
