Omg okay so in 1527 Henry VIII was negotiating a marriage between Mary and Francis, the King of France. Francis asked for a portrait of Mary because, you know, he wanted to see what his new wife looked like. Henry obliged, except he also sent Francis a portrait of himself which literally no one had asked for and I find it hilarious. “Oh, you want a picture of my daughter? Sure, but more importantly, here’s a picture of ME”
