It is interesting how the artist paints Mary and Elizabeth with so much likeness!  There were as different as night and day...

Don't you think Elizabeth looks a lot like her mother? Or it's just me who thinks that?

Wonderful pics Rani!
I think that she resembles her mother very much, although the color of her hair reminds me more her father

Yes, her father was red-haired and she got it from him. But her eyes, her mouth... I really think it's all Anne Boleyn! She was undoubtely a Boleyn and a Tudor. And Henry had the nerves to say she wasn't his daughter!

Where does he say this? As far as I know he never doubted his paternity.

Only when he wanted to get rid of Anne Boleyn and wanted to find her guilty of treason. I've heard that... I might be wrong, of course

Hi,

I cannot believe that Henry didn't think Elizabeth was his daughter.  She, of all his children, looked the most like him and can readily be seen to be Henry VIII's issue more than Mary or Edward or even Henry Richmond...

Are you saying that Henry VIII said that Elizabeth wasn't her daughter to have a reason for condemn Anne Boleyn to death? I haven't heard nothing like this before... quite interesting.
But what after Anne's death? He still kept that attitude to her daughter?

Well, after Anne's death, Elizabeth spent sometime away of the court, but later she returned, and she got close to Katherine Parr. I think he always knew she was his daughter. What I've read about Henry doubting of Elizabeth's paternity was only to promote Anne Boleyn's fall.

Can I ask where you read this?
At her trial, there was no mention of Elizabeth being a bastard, even though Anne had (supposedly) "cohabited with her brother and other accomplices".
According to Alison Weir, it was Mary who had convinced herself that Elizabeth looked like Smeaton.
