The Tudor style hat looks similar to what Thomas Cromwell - 1st earl of Essex and chief minister to Henry VIII, wore. Henry had him executed for boasting that Anne of Cleves was a great beauty; thus strongly encouraging the king to marry her. Henry was not pleased upon seeing his new bride. Anne got the hint, not only from her good sense, but gossip from within. She feared that the king would put her neck on the chopping block, so she cleverly persuaded Henry that she was content with being just friends and would be like a "sister" to him. Henry agreed and appreciated Anne for being so agreeable and kind and a mother figure to his children whom she adored. Too much information, lol. I can't help it, I love history!
