Elizabeth Enthroned


Renold Elstrack (1570-1630?)
Queen Elizabeth enthroned.
Engraving in Robert Glover,
Nobilitas politica vel ciuilis
London: William Jaggard, 1608
The handcolored engraving shows Elizabeth enthroned. We know that she wore three different costumes for her coronation day, two of them inherited from her sister Mary. One of these had a mantle and gown made of cloth of gold, the mantle trimmed with ermine. Robert Glover, who wrote this book, was Somerset Herald and one of the great English genealogists.
