Happy Epiphany! In today's "on this day in Tudor history" video, I talk about the wedding of Anne of Cleves and Henry VIII, an event that took place on this day in 1540.

    I wanted to tell you, I LOVE the graphics and sounds (music) at the beginning and end. Great job!

      Thanks Michelle! I had fun learning how to do the particle effect, but now want to put it on everything! Perhaps if Claire gets angry about some topic, I can have steam coming from her head!

    I love the descriptions of Anne’s dress! I can completely imagine it. I love that she had rosemary in her crown. I was born in Slovakia, and to this day all guests at a wedding wear pinned rosemary spring to their jackets/dresses. I think I read in Ruth Goodman’s book that rosemary was used this way in Tudor times too. And here is Anne’s Crown. Love it.

      It does sound beautiful doesn’t it? I love these vivid descriptions and it would be wonderful to see a reproduction of it.
