Queen Elizabeth I Portrait Art Print
In honor of International Women's Day (#IWD2016), I've created a series of portraits of some famous and awesome ladies of history. This is an ongoing project, so will be continuing to post them as I make them.
Queen Elizabeth I (1533 – 1603) is a formidable character, worthy of recognition for her long and (mostly) peaceful reign of England. Daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth ruled for 44 years. Known as the Golden Age, where English drama flourished, led by playwrights such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and seafaring English adventurers such as Francis Drake, made their name. Nicknamed the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth never married or bore an heir.
