Foreign visitors who saw Elizabeth were often a lot more objective and honest! Paul Hentznet, a German visitor to Greenwich Palace in 1598 described the 65 year old Elizabeth thus --

'...Her face oblong, fair but wrinkled, her eyes small yet black and pleasant; her nose a little hooked, her lips narrow and her teeth black; her hair was of an auburn colour, but false; upon her head she had a small crown. Her bosom was uncovered as all English ladies have it till they marry. Her hands were slender, her fingers rather long and her stature neither tall nor low. Her air was stately and her manner of speaking mild and obliging.'

From this it doesn't appear that Elizabeth piled on the leaded white paint but she might have done so on certain State occasions, when she was in procession, for example and she became almost an animated icon to the ordinary people in the crowds.

It does seem from the above that in old age Elizabeth wore wigs, also her teeth had rotted. That probably wasn't uncommon among the wealthy, who ate sugary food. I've always been intrigued by the hooked nose. Was it a legacy from her father or her mother?

A portrait of Elizabeth I that is different from the rest.

Thanks for that information!

Here is a clip from a documentary earlier this year about the Armada showing how Elizabeth I may have prepared in the mornings:

Good article, but it's very sad to read about little religious freedom there was in those days.
