I thought it was very interesting as well. Rumour has it thatmost,if not all,of the contemporary portraits of Anne Boleyn were destroyed when she fell out of favour.

I always wondered about Holbein's sketch and I never knew that someone else actually labeled them. That explains a lot.

I have to say that I'm happy with the conclusion reached here as it comes closest to my own image of Anne!
