|Legend||HENRIC VIII DI GRA REX AGL Z FR|
|Full text||HENRICVS VIII DEI GRATIA REX ANGLIAE ET FRANCIE|
Translated from Latin: Henry the eighth, by the grace of God, King of England and France.
This legend was displayed on the coinage of King Henry VIII 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.
