Did Anne Boleyn bring French fashion to court?

Posted By on June 4, 2021

In this latest edition of my Fan Q&A series for the Anne Boleyn Files and Tudor Society YouTube channel, I’m answering Jessica’s question “Did Anne Boleyn bring French fashion to court herself or were others involved?”

Anne Boleyn spent six years in France and was described by a contemporary as “native French” in her ways, but did she bring French fashions, such as the French gown and French hood, to the English royal court?

Find out in this video…

Note: On closer inspection, she’s actually wearing a crown in the coronation seating plan. Sorry! However, the queen, which Roland Hui believes to be Anne Boleyn, is wearing a gable hood in the image below. Find out more at https://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/update-anne-boleyn-lady-garter-image/

If you’re interested in asking a question, all you have to do is record a video selfie of yourself asking up to three questions and then send it to me. Find out full instructions and how to send the video at https://forms.gle/PD9pecamz5xxbmML7
