What is the Lion of England?

The Lion of England Tudor beast
The Lion of England Tudor beast

A brave and ferocious lion has featured on the shield of England for as long as it has existed.

The lion represents English courage, strength, dignity, and pride – traits that no animals native to the country at the time seemed to possess.

The Lion of England assumed royal beast status in the early twelfth century during the reign of Richard I (1189–99), when heraldry was formally established. Used by Henry VIII as his dexter supporter, which means it appears on the viewer’s left-hand side, the Lion of England remains an iconic heraldic symbol to this very day, and perhaps in modern times is more representative of Britishness rather than Englishness.

One of the first beasts to flank the parapets of the Moat Bridge of Hampton Court Palace, the crowned lion supports a shield bearing the impaled arms – a combination of two coats of arms – of Henry VIII and Jane Seymour.
