Some say Mary Tudor, the sister of Henry VIII of England and queen of France for a short time, was the woman who introduced this head covering to the English court and others point to Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII. In any case, it was more graceful and feminine than the angular, bulky English hood that well to do English women were wearing over their coifs, and quickly became popular. Worn from 1530 to 1580 at the English court, a French hood with veil was the most popular headwear of the 16th century. Our French hood with veil has a typical, soft black hood decorated with billiments of gold braid and beaded trim. The lightweight veil is attached.
