Full View of An Unknown Lady
An Unknown Lady, by an unknown artist, 1567. (Lord Tollemache)
This lady is wearing a bongrace over her head, which may or may not be attached to the French hood. According to the Cunningtons (HEC), sometimes the French hood veil would be stiffened and turned up, which would form the bongrace, and sometimes it was a separate accessory.
