Abstract

This thesis focuses on issues of continuity and change in the evolution royal portraiture and examines the similarities and differences in portraying Elizabeth I in the 16th and 17th centuries and Elizabeth II in the 20th century. The thesis goes beyond the similarity of the shared name of the two monarchs; it shows the major changes not only in the way of portraying a queen but also in the way in which the public has changed its perception of the monarch and of the monarchy. Elizabeth I aimed to unite a nation by focusing the eye upon herself, while Elizabeth II triumphed through humanity and informality.
