There are some beautiful historically accurate helmets available these days. Makes it hard to pick one for my new tunic set I’m making.
HISTORY MEME [4/9 Kings/Queens] | Elizabeth I
Elizabeth I, byname The Virgin Queen, or Good Queen Bess (born Sept. 7, 1533, Greenwich, near London, Eng.—died March 24, 1603, Richmond, Surrey), queen of England (1558–1603) during a period, often called the Elizabethan Age, when England asserted itself vigorously as a major European power in politics, commerce, and the arts. It is famous above all for the flourishing of English drama, led by playwrights such as William Shakespeare and Christopher Marlowe, and for the seafaring prowess of English adventurers such as Sir Francis Drake.
“The Nazgûl were they, the Ringwraiths, the Úlairi, the Enemy’s most terrible servants; darkness went with them, and they cried with the voices of death.”
