THEME




The  X-ray shows a female head  in a higher position, facing in the opposite direction to  the portrait of Elizabeth. The eyes and nose of the face  underneath can now be seen where paint has been lost  from Elizabeth’s forehead. The lips and headdress can also  be seen, as can the ruff which was positioned underneath  Elizabeth’s chin. The identity of the original sitter remains  a mystery but the unfinished portrait appears to have been  very competently painted, probably by a different artist.  The original sitter appears to have been wearing a French  hood of a type that was fashionable in the 1570s and 1580s,  suggesting that there may have been a period of a few years  before the panel was re-used.”
If you look closely, you can notice the similarity between unknown woman and … Anne Boleyn!  The oval face with dark dramatic eyes, high cheekbones and full lips bears resemblance to contemporary accounts on Anne Boleyn’s appearance. This portrait looks very similar to NPG and Hever portraits of Anne Boleyn.

Anne was queen of England and the second wife of Henry VIII; she spent most of her childhood in France and returned to England as a young woman. In 1526 Henry began his pursuit of Anne. She resisted his attempts to seduce her, refusing to become his mistress as her sister Mary had.Henry wanted to annul his marriage to Queen Catherine so he would be free to marry Anne. When it became clear that Pope Clement VII would not annul the marriage, the breaking of the power of the Catholic Church in England began. In 1532, Henry made Anne the marquess of Pembroke. The following year, they married and Anne gave birth to one of the most capable female monarchs - Elizabeth I.To Henry’s displeasure, however, she failed to produce a male heir. 

Henry had Anne investigated for high treason in April 1536. She was arrested and sent to the Tower of London, where she was tried and found guilty. She was beheaded on May 19, 1536.

Through the centuries, Anne has been called “the most influential and important queen consort England has ever had”,since she provided the occasion for Henry VIII to divorce Catherine of Aragon, and declare his independence from Rome.
