Eleanor asked:

I don't really understand the bit about Anselma. I understand she was a lover of Cromwell's, and that she's on the tapestry as the queen of Sheba, but why is she on that? I'm only part way through the book, though.

Elizabeth Milliken My understanding of that is that the figure of Sheba on the tapestry resembles Anselma, and Cromwell therefore thinks of her as Anselma.
