Question from Gervase - Tudor death masks

I know they made a "death mask" of Elizabeth I, and I was wondering if anyone knows if Henry VIII,or Anne Boleyn, also had a "death mask" made of them or perhaps these masks were only accepted in the era of ElizabethI?

  1. The one "death mask" for Elizabeth that I know of is actually a funerary effigy, not an actual death mask. For the difference, see the related thread linked by Lara.
