Traces the private life and romantic intrigues of Elizabeth I, and describes the ways in which the Queen captured the loyalty and affection of her subjects
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Acutely aware of the power of the populace to threaten and even topple governments, Queen Elizabeth I of England continually courted the favor of her subjects. In a series of shrewdly calculated public-relations moves, she encouraged the use of the royal image and her personal coat of arms in every imaginable format on every conceivable artifact. In addition to a host of well-known portraits and miniatures, Elizabeth's likeness was emblazoned on cameos, medallions, book jackets, and tapestries. Heavy pieces of period furniture featured carvings of triumphal royal scenes. Subtle signs and symbols venerating the monarchy were skillfully interwoven into the architectural and garden designs of the Elizabethan era. Vividly adorned with more than 150 color photographs, the text outlines the details of court life and analyzes Elizabeth's lifelong obsession with her public persona. A stunning browsing item. Margaret FlanaganReview:
[T]reats a familiar, perpetually popular subject in a fresh way by approaching it through the visual record left by Elizabeth--not simply portraits of the monarch but of her homes, her collections, her possessions (her riding boots, her saddle, her gloves); impersonal historic grandeur becomes immediate and intimate here. -- Boston Globe, 6 December 1998
