Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth I - the last Tudor monarch - was born at Greenwich on 7 September 1533, the daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, she succeeded the throne in November 1558. Queen Elizabeth was a great follower of fashion and always dressed to impress. Clothes were an important status symbol to the Elizabethans, and a person had to dress in accordance with their social status. It was thus in keeping that the Queen dressed more magnificent than everyone else. The Queen's gowns would be gorgeously hand embroidered with all sorts of coloured thread, and decorated with diamonds, rubies, sapphires, and all kinds of jewels.

Our Queen Elizabeth I costume is a sumptuous rustic red and gold dress with matching headwear.
