Check Out These Historical Figures!

Thanks to LizzyJ over at Historically Obsessed I was led to this awesome website that I wanted to share with all of you as well. George Stuart made these incredible likenesses of many historical figures. The website breaks the figures down into categories including English and French Royalty to American Revolutionaries and many others in between. There is quite an array of Tudor members included as well.

I wanted to share this image that I found from the website of Catherine de' Medici.

I don't think this is too flattering of an image, but maybe I just made her look fabulous in my head, haha.
Here is the link to his website: The Historical Figures of George Stuart.

Enjoy and leave a comment telling what some of your favorites were!
