For all of human existence, headwear has represented power and status. In this detail from Rubens' The Coronation of Marie we see where Marie, in order to increase her power, demanded that Henry allow her a seperate coronation. From our "hatcentric" point of view, we are impressed by the profound significance this moment holds - when a crown is simply placed on a head and the whole political world changes.
Crowns, similar to the one pictured here can be seen at The Village Hat Shop.
