Hardly a wig then in that case surely?
This is most fascinating.

With Anne's portrait, I think it might have been that it was done later, so it was likely artistic license. Was that portrait done in the reign of her daughter or before? Perhaps most interesting of all is the the true hair color of the wives like Catharine Howard who we really don't have a reliable portrait of, and also Anne of Cleves/ Jane Seymour because they wear headdresses in their portraits. Then again, if we could see their hair, maybe it wouldn't be the color their hair actually was, anyway. There's another lock of Katharine Parr's hair out there by the way. I saw it online, and it looks exactly like this one.

There is a very early portrait of Catherine of Aragon that  shows the lovely light hair she had as a young woman.

Thank you Kimberly for the link to the lock of Mary Tudor's hair...certainly a beautiful blond color and very unlike the dark haired picture of her with her second Husband. This Hair color I have read came from Elizabeth Woodville Mary's Grandmother and was passed on to her descendants. Elizabeth Woodville was known for her great beauty and I have always thought Mary (Henry VIII) Sister beautiful also. Yes, it would be very interesting to me to see in particular Catherine Howard's hair color....I wonder if there are any original contemporary descriptions of her? Contemporary descriptions of Anne Boleyn describe her as dark haired and dark eyed. So, its beginning to look like She may have been the only brunette wife of Henry VIII!

Yes. There is a love letter from her to Seymour at Sudeley Castle.

Katherine of Aragon certainly had a lovely hair colour in that picture, Kimberly.  It must have been a bright, golden red.

True but i like Anne's hair and Katherine of Howard's hair....But in the portrait i've seen Anne of Cleves was pretty...in my opinion....

Is that reallu how they actually looked like? I always wondered about this one vecause they are painted by various painters who seem to have different versions of their faces. Hmmm...

Katherine is very pretty. Thank you for those pictures, Alzbeta!
I agree with you, Ells! I even don't know why Henry considered her ugly.

Amazing colored fotos  by the most wonderful Yelena Aleksandrovna. Endless thank you very much!
