Coronation portrait of Elizabeth I. She wore her hair loose probably to prove to the masses as she rode through the streets, on her way to her coronation, that she was Henry's daughter (he was well-known for his red hair), and therefore not a bastard as had been alleged during her mother's time. She was 26, already tested by many plots, an imprisonment and threats against her life. Yet she persevered and became England's most successful and famous monarch.
