New Mary, Queen of Scots movie [Sep. 30th, 2006|11:02 pm]
Elizabeth I, Queen

Did anyone hear that they're going to make a movie about Mary, Queen of Scots and her relationship with Elizabeth I? I think I read it on imdb.com. Anyway, Scarlett Johanson is apparently going to play Queen Mary. Um...I don't really see her as Mary though. And are they going to age her then - because the Mary/Elizabeth relationship didn't get really interesting till later in life, right?

I wonder who will play Elizabeth in this film? I'm kind of used to Cate Blanchet's Elizabeth since she'll end up playing her in two films ("The Golden Age" comes out next year I think).

P.S. On a related note, who do you think played the best Elizabeth on film/TV?

Iconses! [Jun. 9th, 2006|06:03 pm]
Elizabeth I, Queen

Hi there. =)

I'm new here, obviously. I'm sixteen years old, I live in the US, and I'm utterly devoted to the Tudor era, particularly Elizabeth and Anne Boleyn. In fact, I persuaded my parents to pay for a month's subscription to HBO just so I could watch the new Elizabeth special. ^_^

I've made 3 icons from that movie, and there are more on the way.

[Current Music |clampdown -- the clash]

Hi! Insomnia is a wonderful thing ... I was clicking on some of my interests, looking for new comms to join, and found this one. I'm delighted because Queen Elizabeth is my favourite historical figure and, I believe, a great icon of strong womanhood. To put it simply, Elizabeth I is my hero. She faced so much adversity in her life (right from conception!) and overcame it all. She was a strong, intelligent woman ruling in a man's world. She lived in an era of fanatical religious and political belief, yet was herself moderate. I think her modern-ness, if that's a word, is what endears her most to me. She didn't take any shit from anyone, she was independent and detached, yet empathetic.

I'm absolutely obsessed with Tudor England and Elizabeth in particular. Here is a list of biographies I own:
- Elizabeth the Great, by Elizabeth Jenkins
- Elizabeth I, by Anne Somerset
- The Life of Elizabeth I, by Alison Weir
- Elizabeth, by David Starkey
- Elizabeth and Leicester, by Milton Waldman
- Elizabeth and Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens, by Jane Dunn
- I, Elizabeth, by Rosalind Miles (yes, technically a novel, but overall it's historically and characteristically accurate. Reading it feels like a very lively, personal biography).

I also own several books on the Tudor dynasty, Henry VIII and his wives, Anne Boleyn, Mary Tudor, Lady Jane Grey, Mary Queen of Scots ... and those rather out-of-character, soap opera-esque Philippa Gregory novels (which are nonetheless good for light reading, as long as you don't take them seriously).

I'd love to hear people's opinions on the books above, if you've read these, and your opinions on the great lady in general. :D

book request! [Nov. 20th, 2005|03:37 pm]
Elizabeth I, Queen

does anyone have any books about the role of women relevant to 1880-2000 that they would be willing to sell me for not-very-much? specifically to do with advances made by women following a) the great war and b) WW2.

let me know if you have anything. ta.

i dont know if you guys will be able to help me with this one or not but please do your best.

i have a presentation on england's relations with france at the beginning of elizabeth I's reign, to include a 'speech' from the ruler of france (who i assume was henry II soon to be replaced by francois II) or spokesperson to william cecil.
i know that they were at war and i know that they took calais back in 1558 but other than that i'm pretty much stumped.
all i'm asking for is a starting point, because i'm in that mood where work just seems like an absolute chore. i'll be looking through my books later on tonight, once i've got some dinner in me, but need to get my mind focused.

thanks for any help you can give...
