Queen Elizabeth I Portrait

The Queen Elizabeth I Society aims to bring together scholars interested in the Queen and in the intellectual, artistic, cultural, and religious life of her court so that we can share ideas, develop professional friendships, and work together on collaborative projects. We welcome specialists in art, history, literature, music, politics, philosophy, and all other relevant fields.
