It seemed as if the kingdom itself was rotten, diseased and unutterably tired.This portrait is therefore a perverse celebration of the idea of the king’s two bodies, the fusion of the personal and political in early modern monarchy: Elizabeth’s malaise is also her kingdoms’. Elizabeth, still receiving her crown from God as it is held above her by frolicking cherubim, is submitting to our common end: Death.Our type of business means we’re always on call and we have hard deadlines – even though some of our clients sent me really nice notes and gifts, they still expect their work to get done right away. I chose this type of work and I’m really glad I did – I actually love it – but there are some days that I really wish I had a regular job where I could leave at five and forget about every night.Where I actually had a vacation with no work at all and where I received 10-12 weeks of maternity leave – and no one called me to do or fix something the day after I gave birth.I am honoured to welcome Gareth Russell to On the Tudor Trail, to discuss a fascinating posthumous portrait of Elizabeth I.Gareth studied History at Saint Peter’s College, Oxford, and his masters at Queen’s University, Belfast.
