The Virgin Queen by katrinapallon The Virgin Queen by katrinapallon
This wraps up my Elizabethan-themed series comprised of 8 photos. Just to clear a few things up, Queen Elizabeth I was never bald in contrary to what is falsely believed. Nevertheless, I decided to use her supposed "baldness" in this photo series. In reality, her high forehead, as depicted in paintings, may have been natural or it may have been exaggerated by the portrait painters who knew that the Elizabethans considered a high forehead to mean intelligence. Possibly, it may also have been due to the fact that the Queen wore wigs and may have shaved the front of her hair to make them sit more easily. The black veil, Russel is wearing in some of the photos, is inspired by the stories of a ghost of a lady (dressed in black with a black veil over her face) seen to haunt the library of Windsor Castle and is fallaciously believed to be Queen Elizabeth's ghost.

It looks awesome, but what is that thing around her neck? It looks cool.
