Elizabeth i queen of england 1533 1603

Elizabeth I was the daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Born in September 1533, she did not have a happy or stable childhood. Her mother was beheaded when she was two and a half years old and she was declared illegitimate.

Jane Seymour, Henry's third wife was kind to her but she died when Elizabeth was six years old. After her father's death in 1547, Elizabeth had been taken in by Henry's sixth wife, Katherine Parr and her new husband Thomas Seymour. However, she had to leave their house when Katherine got jealous because Thomas was paying Elizabeth too much attention.

Elizabeth's half-brother Edward VI had become king when Henry VIII died and had changed the religion of England to Protestantism but when he died the throne went to her half-sister, Mary, who was a Catholic.

Mary saw Elizabeth, a Protestant, as a threat to her position and had her imprisoned in the Tower of London.

Elizabeth came to the throne in 1558 after her sister, Mary I, died.

When Elizabeth I came to the throne in 1558 after the death of her sister, Mary she needed to win the support of all her people, Catholics and Protestants, those who believed that a woman could not run a country by herself.

One of the best ways for a monarch to win support was by making a tour of the country and showing themselves to the people. In Tudor times this was called a 'progress'.

This was not an option for Elizabeth because she had many Catholic enemies and it was not safe for her to travel around the country.

She chose, instead, to use portraits to show herself to her people. 

It was, therefore, essential that the portraits showed an image of Elizabeth that would impress her subjects.

At intervals throughout her reign the government issued portraits of Elizabeth that were to be copied and distributed throughout the land. 

No other portraits of the Queen were allowed.
