The King's Servants
Caroline Johnson, author of The King’s Servants: men’s dress at the accession of Henry VIII, undertook transcriptions and translations of more than two hundred hand-written pages of 16th century Latin and English in the royal wardrobe accounts. Painstaking analysis of these bundles of orders and parchment books revealed the usual allocation of dress to different ranks of servants at the royal court. Discover the detective work required to reconstruct Henry’s servants’ dress in detail. Fascinating documents, effigies, brasses, stained glass and archaeological artefacts from the late 15th and early 16th century together with original drawings commissioned to illustrate Caroline’s findings all add to the spectacle.
