I just finished reading “The Life and Death of Anne Boleyn” by Eric Ives and there’s a sentence that annoys me a little,p359: “There the clothes were removed-the Tower claimed its perquisites even from a queen” . I don’t really understand why Anne’s clothes were removed ? But also if the Tower claimed them as “perquisites”,what did they do of Anne’s clothes,did they keep them or destroyed them ? Sorry if my questions appears quite trivial and morbid but I can’t imagine a Queen being buried without clothes but also without proper burial,it’s just so disrespectful !
