Talent helps ... a lot

Hans Holbein, a German, painted at least half - Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, and Anne of Cleves - of Henry VIII's six wives.  Thomas Cromwell was Holbein's patron during his time in England.  Holbein was clever - and talented - enough to avoid disfavor when Cromwell and other reformers fell from Henry's grace.

And, Hampton Court was originally Cardinal Wolsey's palace.
