Here are some pictures of people from Lymond's era, in The Game of Kings and Queen's Play. (No spoilers.)
Thanks a lot for that! :)I'll have to show it to my flat mate too, because I got her hooked on the books as well and this question came up when we were watching Shakespeare In Love. We basically wondered how much fashion had changed since Lymond to then. Looks like it's slightly less pompous yet, no crazy ruffs yet.
You're welcome!Hooray for hooked on books! I'm guessing Shakespeare in Love is maybe 40ish years after Lymond? So I guess the fashion had changed about as much as ours has since the 60s. Maybe.
I wonder what the simple folk would wear?Thanks for taking the time to research and share these examples. :)
Hmm, maybe that can be my NEXT picspam...!You're welcome!
For the common people I always imagine the works of Pieter Breughel. Thanks for the portraits. It is always nice to see what people actually looked like, and what they wore.
