I've never seen a pic of Katherine de Valois, come to think of it!  :o

There's her wax funeral effigy in Westminster Abbey. Can't find a picture of it though.

Katherine has got a bit of a squint going on there ;D
Its a lovely brass-rubbing of Edmund isn't it! He certainly didn't pass on his good looks to his son but thats the Yorkist in me I guess :P ;D

I may as well join in the insulting of Katherine de Valois and say she looks . . . atrocious.  ;D
