In this episode of The Tudor History & Travel Show, we discuss one of the most popular monarchs in history: Elizabeth I. I'm joined by Siobhan Clarke, historian and co-author of Gloriana: Elizabeth I and the Art of Queenship. We discuss how Elizabeth used portraiture and miniatures to represent her image and royal authority.
