    black was for the wealthy so that is no indication of color preference…if you do some fabric research of the time period you can see what fabrics or colors were typical to show rank or wealth and what might have been more of a preference….

    and purpel was to show she was royalty no matter what the catholic people say

      What do “Catholic people say?” It’s common knowledge that purple symbolized royalty, and the Catholic Church has never said otherwise.

      She was known to wear yellow in a sense to celebrate the death of catherine of aragon. She was said to be happy that day and chose to wear yellow it being a bright joyful color.

        Hi Tab,
        The contemporary sources actually differ regarding who wore yellow that day – see https://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/8-january-1536-joyful-yellow-triumphant-parading/ for more on this.

    I read somewhere that her favorite color was green.

    1. Kate says:

      Actually, now that I think of it, I think it was green. I remember reading something online saying, “Anne’s favourite colour was green.’ Yellow and green can look the same anyway. Lol.
