Elizabeth I was one of the most brilliant rulers of all time, not just England. She knew how to create a image like her father did, but one that not only was of splendor, and magnificence, but one of real substance. She was what she purported to be, and thus she wins respect for what she really was not just the glitter that fades with time as in the case of her father. She was very tolerant, pragmatic, and non emotional about things in an age when people were all the above and who often put their own good represented as the people's good in front of the people's actual good. She is to be admired, and many things she said are great quotes even now, and very modern as well. I can think of some other things she said, among them '' There is only one God, and the rest is a dispute about trifles'', that show how enlightened she was for the age she lived in.

I haven't read it, but

Coronation: A History of Kingship and the British Monarchy
by Roy Strong

ought to have an account of Elizabeth's crowning (and refer to sources)!

For the speeches have a look at Elizabeth I: Collected Works by Leah S. Markus, et al.

In this photo released by Historical Portraits, in London on Monday June 12, 2006 a centuries-old portrait of England's Queen Elizabeth I as a gangly teen is seen. The portrait will go up for sale Thursday for 800,000 pounds (US $1.5 million, euro 1.2 million). London art dealer Philip Mould discovered the work, attributing it as authentically Elizabethan rather than a contemporary copy, as was originally though. "Portrait of Queen Elizabeth I when a Princess" is one of only two contemporaneous portraits of the queen as a young woman. The other hangs in the private collection of the royal family. Mould's London art gallery acquired the piece at the end of last year, after it had been in a private collection in Spain for 50 years. (AP Photo/HO Historicalportraits.com)

It looks to my (non art-historian) eyes like a poor copy of the other one.  :)

It makes me mad that people would buy historical documents and paintings: unless they plan on loaning them to museums...I think they should be publically displayed and not harbored away in private homes by collectors...reminds me of pirates or something...

Also, I am curious about Elizabeth keeping a portrait of her mother in a ring...in the movie with Anne-Marie Duff the last scene shows a latch on the royal ring to contain a mini portrait of Anne...was this accurate or a fabrication of the director?

Also, in the very beginning of this blog someone wrote she was the daughter of Henry VII, wasn't her father Henry VIII? Confused..  ???
