Edward I of England
1911 / Daniel Chester French / Cleveland
Full figure portrait of Edward I dressed in robes with a shaft in his left hand standing above the courthouse entrance. Edward I was an English monarch who restored a peaceful Royal Authority to the Isles and established Parliament as a permanent institution. His far-reaching reforms to the English political and judicial systems by way of Statutes were famously effective, and laid the essential groundwork for much of his progeny.
