Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian TsarsArmour, textiles and an extraordinary display of silver are among more than 150 objects in Treasures of the Royal Courts: Tudors, Stuarts and the Russian Tsars, a new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum which opens on 9th March 2013. Riches from the royal courts from Henry VIII to Charles II and from Ivan the Terrible (Ivan IV) to the early Romanovs are gathered together from several state collections to create a narrative. At the heart of the exhibition, which marks the 400 year anniversary of the Romanov dynasty, is a showcase of spectacular British and French silver given to successive Russian Tsars. Some would have been melted down for money had they remained in Britain or France.
