The Last of the Tudors
Queen Elizabeth I.
She has long been an inspiration to me. I began reading everything I could lay my hands on, about her, when I was a teenage girl and was encouraged by her faith, her strength and her persistence.
Having lived an uncertain life of peril and intrigue, imprisoned and abused, and under constant threat of assasination or exile, she survived to accomplish wonderful things as Queen of England and Ireland.
She has her admirers and she has her detractors - even now - just as she did when she lived.
I shall remain a faithful fan.
This is a 3x5, collaged using some of my own hand-prepared papers and some 'ready-made'.
