While King Charles I isn't winning a lot of votes for 'Top Monarch', we can't deny the man had taste. During his reign he stashed away expensive, fancy clothes, furniture, and art.
It's this collection that now takes its place at the Royal Academy. See over 100 works of art spanning classical sculptures, Baroque paintings, amazing miniatures, and magnificent tapestries.
This stunning exhibition demonstrates the indelible impact Charles and his taste in art had on England at the time. A must for history buffs and art fans everywhere!
