Elizabeth I of England.    I don't know why, but I've had an obsession with the Tudors since I was 11. 10 years later and my obsession endures.

The Imperial State Crown is the most magnificent of all the Crown Regalia. It was made in 1838 for the coronation of Queen Victoria, and then altered for the coronation of George VI in 1937 and Elizabeth II in 1953. It replaced the crown of St. Edward on the head of the ruler immediately after the coronation. Although the crown is modern in design it is set with very ancient gems. ♥ #beautiful #jewelry #gems #crowns

St Edwards Crown - Anne Boleyn is the only consort, before or since, to have been crowned with the St Edward crown, which is reserved for the actual monarch. On 1 June 1533, Anne was anointed, then this crown was placed on her, a spectre of gold was placed in her right hand, and a rod of ivory was placed in her left hand. She was basically crowned as regnant.

The Coronation This was likely to be one of the last occasions upon which footmen powdered their hair. Truth to tell short hair plastered flat to the head and covered in flour (a retired Royal footman recorded this technique) was not a great look.

On the June our Queen, Elizabeth II, was crowned with great solemnity and ceremony in Westminster Abbey whilst seated in the ancient Coronation Chair (King Edward’s Chair).

I love this for many reasons. With the crown falling it represents Rosie dying and her reign was very short

All hail Rowan Castfire, Queen of Dragons and Mortal Men. Long may she reign.
