I rented The Other Bolyen Girl from the library and watched it last night. I watched the part about "Being a Lady" during the Tudor period.
They touched on the Gable Hood and the French Hood and SOME of the reasons why they wore them (lice, modesty).

Can anyone expound on that?

Here is an article on the French Hood...It has a link to the Gable Hood, which I think is much nicer French hood - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
