  1. FYI – the caption for Dangerous Beauty identifies the actress incorrectly. She is Catherine McCormack (and the always Man Candy Rufus Sewell).

  2. I’m not sure what they were wearing in 5th century Germany but I am sure it wasn’t anything so fitted a structured. Tailoring techniques were definitely limited, everybody wore baggy. On the other hand decorative needlework definitely existed and bright colors.

  3. According to Wikipedia Childeric’s wife Basina was remembered as a proactive wom6en who left the king of Thuringia for Childeric because he was the mightier king. She was Childeric’s only recorded wife and mother of Clovis I so apparently that worked out for her.
    A sixth century Merovingian queen discovered in the crypts of St. Denis cathedral was well enough preserved for her costume to be reconstructed.
    Queen Arnegunde was buried in a knee length tunic and cross gartered trousers under a long gown closed with brooches and a girdle, a veil covered her head. Her garments were of red silk bordered with gold embroidery and held together by richly decorated gold brooches and clasps. Basina was probably dressed in a similar fashion.
