|Legend||HENRIC DI GRA REX ANGL Z FRA|
|Full text||HENRICVS DEI GRATIA REX ANGLIAE ET FRANCIE|
Translated from Latin: Henry, by the grace of God, King of England and France.
This legend was displayed on the coinage of King Henry VII of England. By long standing tradition, it is in Latin language and not in English. The legend reflects the king's claim to the throne of France (which he did not actually rule).
The legend is inscribed in Medieval style which differs very much from modern Latin letters.
