The single most fake-looking Tudor portrait ever

Showtime's miniseries "The Tudors" chose the "I could snap your neck in a second" pose for their iconic image of the English King Henry VIII. Suffice it to say that the real King Henry VIII would have never been caught dead being painted in the ready-to-throttle mode; his real preference was for the "package shot" (notice the conspicuous absence of a "muscle shirt" in the historical portrait).
