Engraving 1:
After William Hamilton (c. 1868)
Robert Vermaat

Vortigern and Rowena

Steel Engraving from The History of England, by David Hume and William Cooke Stafford. Published by London Printing & Publishing c. 1868.

Overall Page size is 11" by 7.1/2"

printed on Heavy Quality Paper/Card


This is an engraving after the original painting by William Hamilton, which was commissioned from Hamilton by Robert Bower to be engraved for his illustrated edition of David Hume’s History of England. The main difference between this copy and the original is of course the mising person of the future father-in-law, hengist, whose position directly behind Vortigern is suddenly empty.
