Henrietta-Maria and dwarf, Sir Jeffrey Hudson J900214

MARBLE HILL HOUSE, Richmond-upon-Thames, Greater London. " Queen Henrietta Maria and the Dwarf Sir Jeffrey Hudson" after Sir Anthony VAN DYCK (1599-1641). Henrietta-Maria (1609-69) was daughter of Henri IV of France and wife of Charles I of England. Sir Jeffrey Hudson (1619-82) is recorded to have been only 18 or 19 inches (46cm) tall at the age of 30, unusually with no hint of disproportion or distorted physiognomy. He is later reported to have doubled his height. In 1626 he was served in a pie to the royal couple and soon afterwards entered the service of the queen. After a life of adventures, including military service, a duel, exile, slavery, and imprisonment as a Catholic, his death is unrecorded
