I have finally started to get some lesser known information out there. Over the last few years I have found the gap between what I know, and what everyone else knows has lead to me simply not being able to be able to explain choices I made in my clothing even when I had a number of resources with me. So, here are links to all my info, along with when I published or will publish 🙂

|| Anne of Cleves ||

  • The Holbein portraits (to publish, it’s the last piece before I explain The Hat)
  • The Bruyn portrait (this is the Bernal/Rosenbach portrait, there are many details no one in England would have known about at the time, and only really becomes obvious when you look for the influence on fashion caused by influence of political aspirations and clashes.)
  • Copies of the Bruyn portrait (and why they are copies, because they are obviously so once you know why the Bernal/Rosenbach portrait is the original.)
  • Tryptichon (a good colour image was only just digitised last year, details now viewable confirm the Bernal/Rosenbach portrait and the depicitions of dress in the Codice de trajes as it supports the distinction between nobility and citizens as dictated by sumptuary laws.)
  • Contested images (to publish, it really only makes sense once you know what to expect.)
  • Mislabeled (this is just so weird. Any painting labeled Anna Regina was assumed to be Anne Boleyn, but then later Anne of Cleves.)
  • Will the real Stickelchen Please Stand up? (to publish, I still have some transcribing and a lot of image editing to do, this is about The Hat.)
  • A bon fin? (already published on my site, editing it for my new one.)
  • Hall’s Chronicles (published ages ago, but now separate from the next two pages.)
  • Wriothesley Chronicle (to publish)
  • Letters And Papers (getting huge so will need to be published in chapters.)
  • wedding negotiations (published a while back, but it’s interesting to read anyway.)

|| Clothing of the North Rhine ||

  • All images sorted by date (published ages ago, got a few to cite still and a handful of newly digitised images.)
    • der Adel (nobility) (these are the ones I need to cite and tag, tags are so hard for these due to how different clothing was and don’t match the records for citizens.)
    • die bugerin (citizens) (will be sorted by decade as atm you need to start at the start and while context is great it can be a barrier.)
  • Codice de trajes
    • Gelderland (just published and it’s really nifty!)
    • Julich (just published, even niftier!)
    • Koeln (just published, less nifty except to support how reasonable the attempt was made for the other two.)

All the rest were published ages ago, and show how hard it is to find more specific records for 1500-1550 of the nobility. Most records were dispersed in at least two waves.
