Portrait of Anne Boleyn from Hever Castle

Posthumous portrait of Anne Boleyn housed at Hever Castle. This portrait is frequently (and incorrectly) stated to be Hans Holbein the Younger although it dates to a much later date. It is very likely that Anne did sit for Holbein during her time as queen although any portrait that was made has not survived.

St. Thomas More. Beheaded on Tower Hill, London in 1535, he steadfastly refused to approve Henry VIII’s remarriage and establishment of the Church of England, denying the pope as head. More declared he had all the councils of Christendom and not just the council of one realm to support him in the decision of his conscience. Few saints are more relevant to our time.

Ann Boleyn, Queen of England & Marquess of Pembroke - Okay, this may seem like an odd choice; but she was extremely bright & influential.  She was instrumental to the English Reformation (and not just because Henry wanted to sleep with her); was a patroness of the arts & anyone (short of Hitler) that could be the instrument/object that shift the entire face of the world is worth a little bit of admiration... right?

History of the British fashion

Fashion is a huge subject. It was dependent on the area of the world lived in, the class or profession of the wearer, whether they were male or female, required formal or informal attire and the technologies and materials available for manufacturing the garments. And yet, in many ways imperial fashion was a slave to the fashions of 'high society' of cosmopolitan Britain. It was remarkable for how often it did not adapt to the environment or climate lived in. British subjects in particular…

Henry was not able to divorce his wife or his whole country could have been excommunicated. He tried to use “Papal dispensation”, which means he tried to use his title to convince the Pope. King Henry was stupid and failed. His frustration forced him to write an Act of Supremacy over the Roman Catholic Church, in 1533. He made the Church of England and successfully divorced his wife, Catherine. He immediately remarried to Anne Boleyn for another go at a son. Ironically, he once again failed.
