I have the entire Elizabeth R production, and you're absolutely correct -- it's amazing. Glenda Jackson was so convincing as Elizabeth I, that she reprised the role in the film Mary, Queen of Scots starring Vanessa Redgrave. You seldom see that outside of sequels.

Glenda was the best; she just chewed up the scenery as Elizabeth. That was an astounding series.

How image of Elizabeth I's security chief was painted over Catholic drawing of Virgin Mary by subversive artist | Mail Online
Quote:
He was Queen Elizabeth's I's spymaster, protector and the deeply-Protestant man bent on crushing all those who supported the Pope in Rome.
But 500 years on it appears a cunning plot by a subversive Catholic artist may have been uncovered - because below a priceless portrait of Sir Francis Walsingham lies a secret image of the Virgin Mary holding a baby Christ.
An interesting article and I hope this is the correct thread, but if not maybe the mods can move it.

Nice article but I don't necessarily see it as an act by a subversive artist. As the article states near the end, the Tudors appeared to recycle wooden panels by painting over them. What better way than for Walsingham to show his distaste for Catholicism than by having his portrait painted over what was formerly a painting with Catholic overtones.

You may not have liked the Duchess of Cambridge’s first official portrait – but at least she got off more lightly than Elizabeth I.
A painting of the Tudor monarch has gone on display which, rarely, shows her with unflattering wrinkles.
The work portrays Elizabeth in her sixties, resplendent in her regal glory, but with no attempt to hide the ravages of time.
It was painted in the late sixteenth century by Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger who was a renowned artist of the Tudor court.

What an exciting, important find! What a shame that the previous owner never knew what he/she had.

According to a historian, Elizabeth I was a man, it makes nonsense.

Is this proof the Virgin Queen was an imposter in drag? Shocking new theory about Elizabeth I unearthed in historic manuscripts | Mail Online

I don't know if I believe it either. It makes an interesting theory though.

What an interesting read and for sure stuff that historical thrillers are made of. I've read several of Steve Berry's book and he's very good at what he does. I will definitely be getting The King's Imposter.

This sounds like a book right up my alley; even if it stretches the truth by a long shot, it definitely sounds like a good read. I'll have to read it.

She definitely has very strong features in that mask, so it wouldn't be an impossibility to play with the theory that she could have been a man.......
