London, 2015: The Tower of London - The Exhibition

The Line of Kings exhibition was first put together between 1688 and 1692 
and it's still going strong today.
Around 1688 the Board of Ordnance decided to create an exhibition promoting the Stuart monarchy. 
The Ordnance were mainly concerned with arming the army and navy, 
but they also provided pageantry to promote kingship. 
They created an exhibition called the Line of Kings. 
It featured royal armour and life-sized wooden horses and wooden royal figures 
made by Grinling Gibbons and several of Britain’s best woodcarvers.
