About the Costume

This unique tiara was first seen in the 1984 production of The Last Days of Pompeii, where Marilù Tolo wore it as Xenia. It was seen again in the 2010 fourth season of The Tudors on Tamzin Merchant as Katherine Howard. It was worn again by Joely Richardson as Kathryn Parr later in the season.

What makes this jewelry set even more interesting is that it is an exact reproduction of one worn by Napoleon’s sister, Caroline Bonaparte. She can be seen wearing the pieces in an early 1800s painting by François Gérard entitled Caroline Bonaparte, Queen of Naples, and Her Children. It is not known if this jewelry set appeared in an earlier Napoleon-related film or television show, for which it would have been custom-made, or if it was merely available through a jeweler. Still, its chances of being produced for The Last Days of Pompeii are small.

Costume Commentary

  1. Are these the same pieces? From 1984’s The Last Days Of Pompeii. First picture is Marilu Tolo playing Xenia, the second is Catriona MacColl as Julia. Think the necklace that Marilu Tolo is wearing is also in The Tudors also worn by Joely Richardson and Tamzin Merchant.

      • so is it my idea or is this tiara bigger than the tudors one? did they shaved the metal a bit perhaps for the later uses or is it simply worn backwards or smth?
