    • Olmec: One of the most famous and talented painters of all time was the artist Hans Holbein. He painted much of the Nobility of Europe, including the notorious Henry VIII, the ruthless Tudor King of England. Henry had six wives. He divorced two, did away with three, and one passed on somewhat mysteriously. Not exactly the ideal husband. Legend has it that after Holbein completed the portrait, King Henry was furious.
      Henry VIII: How dare you make me look twice as fat as I am. The way you've painted me, I look like Henry XVI. And my face. I suppose you liked my chin so much, you painted two more just like it.
      Olmec: Holbein stood steadfast.
      Holbein: I paint what I see. I can do no less and no more.
      Henry VIII: I will throw you in irons. Boil you in oil. And that's just the good news.
      Holbein: Well, of course, maybe I can do a little better.
      Olmec: Holbein relented, and began painting a new, more flattering portrait, which still hangs in England's Royal Palace. The old painting disappeared for years, until it mysteriously made its way to The Temple. Your task is to find The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein and bring it here.
      Kirk: Thank you, Olmec. Tell us, where is this Portrait of Hans Holbein?
      Olmec: The Missing Portrait of Hans Holbein can be found in The Chamber of the Sacred Markers.
