A Portrait of James Il's 'Husband' Has Reappeared in Glasgovw I desire only to live in this world for your sake the king wrote to him BY NATASHA FROST SEPTEMBER 25 2017 A LOST PORTRAIT OF THE man whom English king James I referred to as his husband sweet heart and the one he loved more than anvone else has emerged from conservation work and been authenticated after having been mistaken for a copy for centuries the BBC reports George Villiers the first Duke of Buckingham rose to prominence in court after catching the king's eye at a hunt This 17th-century painting of him now known to be by the Flemish great Peter Paul Rubens had been concealed by layers of dirt as well as later improvements In the painting Villiers is depicted wearing an elaborate lace collar and a sash He was known for his good looks and had been described as the handsomest-bodied man in all of England with a lovely complexion James I lavished attention and care on him and called him Steenie after St Stephen who was said to have had the face of an angel However whether Villiers and James I were lovers in the modern sense of the word has been a source of some contention In their letters James I states how he wept so profusely at their parting that I can scarcelv see to write But scholars have argued that such sentiments are not atypical of male friendship in the 17th and 18th centuries The rumors flared up upon the 2008 discoverv of a secret passage in one of the king's homes linking their bedchambers squidsticks King James I *builds secret tunnel connecting his room to the room of a man he calls his husband* Historians it’s very hard to tell what kind of relationship they would have had let’s not look at this through a 21st century lens Meme
