There aren't any contemporary drawings of Anne at her execution but we know from contemporary written sources that Anne was dressed in a robe of grey or black damask trimmed with ermine, with a crimson kirtle underneath and an English style gable hood (Imperial Account, quoted in Eric Ives). The Spanish Chronicle says she was in a robe of damask with a red damask skirt and a netted coif over her hair. A report in Letters and Papers describes her as wearing a "short mantle furred with ermines", an English gable hood and then a linen cap for the actual execution, along with a blindfold. (LP x.911)
