Elizabeth I

Paintings of a younger Elizabeth I
Anne Boleyn - Mother of Elizabeth I

Coronation Painting of Elizabeth I
Henry VIII - father of Elizabeth I
Elizabethan embroidered book binding - (Katherine Parr's?)

This is just a teeny collection of Tudor and Elizabethan paintings of
Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn and Elizabeth I.  The paintings were usually 'propaganda' to show their regal strength, but I think there is always an insight into their characters and also ................. show their beautiful clothes and accessories.  I also love to try and spot the likenesses between them - just to see who they make take after!
