The celebrations continued following the coronation of Queen Elizabeth I in the days after the big event.
.
.
The celebrations included; tournaments, banquets, masques and a series of jousts.
.
.
Foreign observers were Unanimously impressed by the magnificence of the coronation and the celebrations surrounding it, which had been carefully staged in order to give the impression that England was a land of great wealth and power.
.
.
It was around this time that a full-faced portrait of Elizabeth was painted, with her holding the orb and sceptre, symbols of her authority and wearing her crown and the cloth of gold that she wore at her coronation. Unfortunately the painting no longer exists, but a copy dating to around 1600 (pictured) is currently on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London.
.
.
The portrait was used as a model for the image on her first Great Seal and early official documents.
.
.
Now that she was firmly established on the throne, Elizabeth now turned her attention towards her first Parliament - which would open on January 25. .
.
Two issues were most likely to dominate the session.... Religion and the matter of the Queen’s marriage.

** Henry VII Marries Elizabeth of York ** .
.
532 years ago #onthisday - 18 January - in 1486, King Henry VII (pictured left & 2nd) recently crowned King of England married Elizabeth of York (pictured right & 3rd), daughter of King Edward IV and Queen Elizabeth Woodville at Westminster Abbey (pictured last).
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Cardinal Thomas Bourchier, performed the ceremony. .
.
Elizabeth is reported to have worn a gown of silk damask and crimson satin, with a 'kirtle of white cloth of gold damask and a mantle of the same suit, furred with ermine'. Her hair flowing, threaded with jewels, proclaiming her virginity. While Henry was richly attired in cloth of gold. .
.
Following the ceremony the King and Queen presided over a lavish feast, with guests dining on roasted peacocks, swans, larks and quails, followed by sugar almonds and fruit tarts. .
.
Then came the time for the King and Queen to depart to the bedchamber and consummate their marriage. This took place in the Painted Chamber in Westminster, built by Henry III in the Thirteenth Century.
.
.
Henry and Elizabeth's marriage was seen by many as bringing an end to the years of bloodshed in the Wars of the Roses. The union of two warring houses, Lancaster and York.
It even won Henry the support of many Yorkist supporters.
It would be celebrated for years to come, even when their great-great-grandson King James VI of Scotland inherited the throne of England as King James I in 1603, the proclamation of his accession would speak of their marriage as having 'brought to an end the bloody and civil wars to the joy unspeakable of this kingdom'.
.
.
Although the marriage was a political union, it seems to have genuinely become a love match.
Henry and Elizabeth would go on to have 7 children together- 4 of whom would survive into adulthood. .
.
It is through their eldest daughter Margaret, that the royal line has continued down to the current Monarch of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II (pictured top right) the line goes; .

Just finished reading #TheVirginsLover by #PhilippaGregory. Holy crap! Loved this book, loved everything about it. Loved Elizabeth and Robert, and of course Amy. Was not expecting that ending though! That is something I had no idea about, but I guess you learn something new everyday. What a complete scandal! I also liked how the author showed some of what some of the other characters were thinking at different events in the book, which Philippa Gregory hasn't done in the series before this one. I think this book may be my favourite in the series so far, closely followed by The Other Boleyn Girl, perhaps it's the mother and daughter (Anne and Elizabeth) that I love so much? Anyway, I highly recommend this book to everyone! #Plantagenet #Tudor #ElizabethI #QueenElizabeth #ElizabethTudor #HenryVIII #AnneBoleyn #SirRobertDudley #RobertDudley #WilliamCecil #AmyRobsart #AmyDudley #Book #Books #Bookstagram #Reading #Bookworm #Ebook #Kindle

I love historical fiction. It's definitely my favorite genre and dominates my shelf. I enjoy books about actual people, speculating what their lives may actually have been like. (I also love books about what every day life would have been like, but that’s a different post.) I actually pitched a paper for a history class in college comparing historical fiction about Elizabeth I to nonfiction, but my professor didn't think fiction could have any place in the study of real history.

I picked up all three of these after enjoying another by these authors.
📕I really liked The Virgin Queen's Daughter, so when I saw this one also by Ella March Chase at our work charity sale, I grabbed it.
📗I enjoyed The Last Queen about Juana La Loca, so when I saw the CW Gortner had also written about her mother, I picked up The Queen's Vow. Isabelle of Castille was an amazing woman.
📘I don't know much about Mary Magdalene, but I liked Margaret George's Helen of Troy, so why not try this one.

❓Do you like historical fiction? It seems to be a kind of polarizing genre.

On this day in 1603, Elizabeth made her final visit to the Charterhouse, hosted by Thomas, Lord Howard de Walden, who had received the house from Elizabeth in 1601. She died only a few months later on 24 March 1603.

Some history for you 🇬🇧 #Repost @historicroyalpalaces with @get_repost

Today in 1559: Elizabeth I is crowned Queen.

Elizabeth stayed at the Tower of London a couple of days before her coronation - a stark contrast to her previous stay just a few years earlier as a prisoner. The date of the coronation had been chosen by astrologer and mathematician John Dee, according to an astrological chart. Elizabeth was crowned with three crowns as well as receiving the ceremonial sword, mantle, ring and sceptre.

Loch Leven Castle of Scotland was built in the early 14th century. Mary Stuart, or, Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned here from 1567 to 1568 by Protestant rebels and was forced to give up the throne to her son 13 month old son James VI of Scotland (who later became King James I of England). Mary escaped and fled to England where she sought refuge from her Protestant cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. Many Catholics supported Mary's claim to the English throne and as a result, Mary was imprisoned by Queen Elizabeth I for 18 years. Queen Mary of Scots would eventually be executed after participating in a plot to assassinate Elizabeth I. #plot #parliament #JamesI #Catholics #Protestant #queenelizabeth #queenmary #Scotland #England #castle #queen #king #marystuart #elizabethi #lochleven #lochlevencastle #renaissance #monarch #KingJames #KingJamesI #1500s #EnglishHistory #scottishhistory #1567 #1568
