Elizabeth I, Queen


Hello!  I'm new on here.

I've idolised Elizabeth all my life, have tonnes of books and things on the Tudors ... but have only just realised they're now popular on the net too.  Woohoo!

I've thrown myself in at the deep end role playing Elizabeth on Twitter and a new RPG forum so I could do with all the extra insight I could get.

And if anyone wants to come join the role playing then please do.  I am in desperate need of courtiers as I'm outnumbered by Henry's wives and fiercely hounded by the Queen of Scots.

Tudor RPG Forum

Elizabeth Twitter

I've watched so many films and TV programmes on Elizabeth I couldn't really pick a favourite.  I can never decided whether Robert Dudley truly loved Elizabeth or whether part of it was him craving her power... though I like to think he really loved her.  And oh, gosh, so many thoughts I don't know where to start!

Oooh, and there's a brand new Elizabeth website just been launched by the creator of The Anne Boleyn Files:

Hi all! Name's Sarah! I'm 25 and live in the US. Long time Elizabeth I fan here. :)

It's a (random) long shot, but I was wondering if anyone out there happens to have/would share, know someone who has/will share, or can point me towards a download source (my Google Fu is failing) for Elizabeth's Music by Baltimore Consort, I'd be beside myself with the!giddy. :D As always, thank you in advance!


Happy 476th, Elizabeth! ♥ :D

Hi there :)

I've made a whole pile of icon bases from the BBC miniseries Elizabeth R with Glenda Jackson (if you haven't seen it, seriously -- it's the best thing ever). They're at my journal here for anyone who's interested.

I hope this is allowed...

I've recently enjoyed watching Elizabeth & Elizabeth: The Golden Age, but haven't found many sites or communities here on LJ for them. In particular I'm also looking for any fanfiction that's been written for it. Anyone know where I might look?

Tudor attractions [Mar. 17th, 2007|04:46 pm]
Elizabeth I, Queen

Hey, this summer I'll be in London a few days, and since I love tudor history, I'll probably check out a bunch of tudor-esque attractions.

So, does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for me?

I'll definitely check out the Tower of London, and probably Hampton Court Palace and Westminister Abbey. Otherwise, I'm not sure if I should check out Hever Castle or Hatfield House, or something else? I won't have a car so I'll have to depend on public transit, nor do I have a lot of time.

Anne Boleyn as a mother [Jan. 30th, 2007|04:27 pm]

How do you guys think Elizabeth might have turned out if Anne had lived to raise her? In a way, I'm glad Anne wasn't around. I think her paranoid greediness would have corrupted Elizabeth. She would have brought out the Howard in Elizabeth and not the Tudor. She may have even actively sought out to dethrone Edward or Mary I think. From what I've read, I'm glad most the Boleyns and Howards were knocked down with Anne's fall - well, the Howards were for awhile anyway.

Also, a slighlty OT question: Would Henry have stayed with Katherine if she bared him if their son had lived? Would he have been happy with just two children? Would the pressure of having already one son made her less stressful and worried, causing her body to handle more pregnancies?

Sorry, I've been reading HENRY VIII: THE KING AND HIS COURT by Alison Weir. Good stuff!

Did Essex really love Elizabeth or was he just using her? [Jan. 21st, 2007|11:13 pm]
Elizabeth I, Queen

Finished watching "Elizabeth I" - the Helen Mirren version - and this question came to my mind. Now from what I've read (which is sadly not enough) and from what I've heard, Essex was simply using Elizabeth to play for power. I think she fell head over heels for him, but he only saw her as a golden ticket.

Now, do you guys think that he loved her? Was he just using her? And did he really intend to make a play for the throne - which I've read in some places?

By watching this movie, I wanted to kick him in every scene. He was so obnoxious and annoying - why couldn't Elizabeth see through him straight away? Perhaps she didn't want to. So sad.

What do you guys think?
