I am, to say the least, surprised that the production of Henry VIII
should have had 'poor reviews' in the US.  On what grounds? (I had jy
reservations when I saw it, but it was pretty enthusiastically received
here.....

This will not directly answer the question raised about Danish costume.
However, for those like Edwin Booth in the nineteenth century who wanted
an "archaeologically" correct _Hamlet_, an important authority was James
Robinson Planche. His _The Costume of Shakespeare's Tragedy of Hamlet_
(London: John Miller, 1825) may be of interest.
