View of Henry VIII's Nonsuch Palace in Surrey[ now destroyed] after Georg Hoefnagel for Braun & Hogenberg; above the Latin tag Fulmen Ex Pelvi. Below a moral text by the poet Daniel Meissner.
Built near Henry's favourite hunting ground, numerous animals are depicted in the foreground.

Nonsuch Palace in Surrey was perhaps the grandest of Henry VIII's building projects. It was built on the site of Cuddington, near Ewell, the church and village having been destroyed and compensation paid to create a suitable site. Work started on 22 April 1538, the first day of Henry's thirtieth regnal year, and six months after the birth of his son, later Edward VI. Within two months the name Nonsuch appears in the building accounts, its name a boast that there was no such palace elsewhere equal to it in magnificence. Construction had been substantially carried out by 1541, but it took several more years to complete. As the Royal Household took possession of vast tracts of surrounding acreage, several major roads were re-routed or by-passed to circumvent what became Nonsuch Great Park.

The palace was designed to be a celebration of the power and the grandeur of the Tudor dynasty, built to rival Francis I's Château de Chambord. Unlike most of Henry's palaces, Nonsuch was not an adaptation of an old building; he chose to build a new palace in this location because it was near to one of his main hunting grounds. Built at vast expense because of its rich ornamentation it is considered a key work in the introduction of elements of Renaissance design to England. Dark impression; light stain below plate mark
