About the Costume

First worn by Barbara Kellerman as Anne Boleyn in the 1979 BBC production of Shakespeare’s Henry VIII, this lovely dress went on to appear on numerous novel covers. In 2007 the gown appeared a brilliant green for the reissue of a 1948 Margaret Irwin novel Elizabeth, Captive Princess. In 2008 the dress appeared lilac on a reissue of the 1941 Margaret Irwin book The Galliard. In 2011 it was used for the front cover of the Eve Edwards novel The Rogue Princess. However, this time the color was photoshopped into a bright blue. That same year the gown appeared a mint green on the cover of Three Maids for a Crown by Ella Chase. In 2012 it was seen as bright green on the cover of the Emily Purdy novel A Court Affair. It was seen a second time that year on the Barbara Kyle novel The Queen’s Lady. Here it used a mirrored version of the photo from The Rogue Princess and photoshopped it to red.

Costume Commentary

  1. Maiden in the Tudor Court – June Francis (2014 – this one is not a novel, but two –“His Runaway Maiden” and “Pirate’s Daughter, Rebel’s Wife”).

  2. Mistress to the Crown – Isolde Martyn (2013, and photoshopped into light blue)…

    And check the cover of “Three Maids for a Crown”, the red costume also appears in the lastest book by Ella March Chase, “The Nine Day Queen”…

  3. Also in the cover of the Croatian edition of Sara Poole’s “Poison”, that would be “Trovačica”… Notice that the necklace is also the same than in the other book covers…

    Hey, Katie, I’ve just found something. That cover of “The Queen’s Lady” (Barbara Kyle) it is actually the UK edition of the novel… Sorry for the delay!!!

  4. I don’t know what’s the difference, but Barbara Kellerman’s character is Anne Bullen… I don’t very much about this thing. Is it an historical detail or what?

    • English spelling was pretty arbitrary (and influenced regionally) until about the 19th Century. “Bullen” is another spelling of Boleyn. I’ve also seen it spelled “Bolyn”, “Bolyne”, “Bulyn”…etc. Same goes for “Katherine”. When I write about Henry VIII’s wives, I usually differentiate the 3 Katherines, “Catherine of Aragon” (for the Spanish form “Catalina”), Kathryn Howard, and Katherine Parr.
